Study abroad students may transfer one management elective to the major provided they have taken MGT 323.

For students double majoring in two BSBA majors, a course that is eligible to count for two majors can only count towards one. For example, ENT 423 can count towards the MGT major and the ENT major. If a student is double majoring in MGT and ENT and takes ENT 423, this course can count toward the MGT or ENT major, but not both. However, we do allow a student to double count a course in BSBA major and a minor. For example, a student majoring in MGT and minoring in ENT can have ENT 423 count for both the major and the minor.

In addition to accumulating knowledge and skills in the B.S.B.A. core curriculum, students completing the Human Resource Management major will gain greater understanding of:
• The effects of external factors and organizational strategy on HR practices
• Government legislation impacting HR practices
• The impact of staffing on organizational performance
• Developing effective training modules and evaluating their outcomes
• The impact of various compensation and benefits plans on employee recruitment and retention
• The importance of designing effective performance management systems to drive organizational performance
• Using HR analytics to evaluate HR practices
• Creating and delivering HR products to clients.
By accumulating these competencies, students will increase the likelihood of attaining HR-related certifications before graduation, such as the SHRM-CP. In addition, students are encouraged to join our student chapter of SHRM and participate in SHRM-sponsored case competitions. Ultimately, the Human Resource Management major prepares students for a successful career in HR or admission into top-tier graduate programs in HR (e.g., Master in Industrial and Labor Relations). Recent graduates of this track are employed throughout the United States as a recruiter, HR coordinator or HR consultant at the following companies: Boston Consulting Group, KPMG, Bank of America, Kforce, Aerotek, CenturyLink and Thomas Pink.
