The human resources management major prepares students for careers in management and in human resources.
The human resource approach to managing people focuses on beneﬁting organizations in two signiﬁcant ways: by increasing organizational effectiveness and productivity, and by satisfying employees’ needs.
Students are prepared to become generalists in human resources or to specialize in areas such as organization development, training and development, labor relations, and compensation and beneﬁts.
Students learn speciﬁc concepts and skills that are important and valuable in today’s rapidly changing business environments.
Students are advised to take at least one internship ﬁeld work experience. These internships are available in major business and nonproﬁt organizations and allow students to learn more about speciﬁc areas within human resources.
Internships are available for credit during the regular school year and during the summer months.
While most students choose this major to become human resources professionals, others do so to better prepare themselves for careers in the general ﬁeld of management.
All of the business major programs at Cabrini include a common business core which recognizes the ‘enterprise’ nature of today’s business world that integrates the various strategic areas of business.
Students will ﬁnd the use of a concentration or minor as a way to further customize the human resources management major in response to speciﬁc employment markets, such as the nonproﬁt sector or government agencies, or as a method of broadening their knowledge in the international arena or in the management of information.
