Human Resource Management

The world on its fast rising scale is demanding specialists who can respond to employee concerns, administer labor and employment laws, and design policies dealing with diversity and equal opportunities in the everyday work place. Study abroad and let the world out there be your workplace. “Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Business Administration in human resources emphasizes the management of relationships between employers and employees and the need of specialists in the field with strong cross-cultural communication skills and an understanding of diverse cultures. The international experiences that complement a degree in Human Resource Management are within your reach through study abroad at GVSU. In addition to providing you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, study abroad can enhance your career options and set you apart from other job seekers down the line.

Whether you choose to take part in a GVSU faculty-led program to the London where you’ll learn about the forms of management and cutting-edge concepts or you find yourself studying the impact of human resource management in Spain through a non-GVSU program, you’ll have the opportunity to gain valuable personal, academic, and possibly professional experiences along the way.
