The HR Management COGS builds your interpersonal skills, communication skills, and emotional intelligence as it sets you on the path toward gaining expertise in HR career trajectories such as:

  • recruitment and employee screening;
  • performance management;
  • employee relations;
  • enforcement of disciplinary actions;
  • compensation negotiation;

  • continued education coordinator;
  • and much more.

HR Management is in demand across an unlimited number of industries, and managers of all levels and types are encouraged to develop understanding of best HR practices for the overall success of any organization.

A COGS pathway makes it possible to immediately focus on a specialized area of interest strategically tailored for your next career move or the next step in your education. The admissions process for a COGS is more streamlined than for a full degree, allowing a simpler entry point to explore graduate studies.
