Human Resource Management

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for human resource managers are expected to grow 9% from 2014 to 2024, which is above the predicted 7% growth average for all occupations, creating significant potential for job opportunities in the future.  Human resource managers are employed across industries in both private and public organizations ranging from small to large in size; providing the human resource management graduate many choices to find a job that is the right fit for them.  Further, because many non-HR managers regularly carry out HRM functions, an education in HRM is valuable for students aspiring to find employment in other areas of management.
