Graziadio School of Business and Management Launches Master of Science in Human Resources
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
The Graziadio School of Business and Management is launching a new full-time Master
of Science in Human Resources (MSHR) program starting in August 2016.
The MSHR program is designed for professionals who want to begin a career in HR or enhance their HR experience to take on a more strategic leadership role that aligns human resources with business growth objectives. The full-time MSHR is offered in addition to the part-time MSHR offering, both of which are comprehensive programs that combine core business principles and key technical aspects of talent management.
“In order to be an effective leader in today’s business world, you need to be proficient in both technical skills and human skills,” says David M. Smith, dean of the Graziadio School. “Our cohort-based program and small class sizes offer a collaborative learning experience and one-on-one access to world-renowned professors in the human resource field.”
The one-year, 39-unit program is located at the Malibu campus and is designed for a cohort of 25 students, which provides for an intimate and collaborative learning environment. Students in the MSHR program can also obtain a Certificate in Socially, Environmentally, and Ethically Responsible (SEER) Business Strategy, a values-based approach to sustainable business.
