B.B.A with Major in Human Resource Management
The Human Resource Management major is designed to prepare students to take on the role of a human resource professional in today's organizations. Many organizations, large and small, have employees dedicated to making certain the organization is hiring, developing, and retaining its human capital. Key topics in the major include recruiting, selecting, compensating, training, and appraising employees as part of strategic human resource management practices.
The courses in this major follow guidelines developed by the Society for Human Resource Management and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and are designed to prepare students to move directly into positions of responsibility in human resource management.
Students may be admitted to the College of Business & Public Administration and may elect a major within a business discipline after completing at least 60 semester hours at UND or other accredited institutions.
They must also have earned a minimum grade point average of 2.50 (2.0 is C) in all courses attempted and a “C” or better in the six courses comprising a sophomore-level pre-business core.
Students planning to transfer to UND from a junior college should enroll in only those junior college business courses that are offered as freshman or sophomore level courses at UND.
