Human Resource Management - B.S.B.A.
Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.
The Human Resource Management Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree program prepares students for careers in a variety of managerial and professional positions within the human resource profession. Graduates are prepared for entry- and mid-level positions and advanced coursework in human resource management or business administration.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:
- Apply the major concepts, skills and values of business administration.
- Communicate effectively to diverse audiences, purposes and situations through a variety of professional methods within business administration.
- Use decision-support tools to resolve contemporary business issues using ethical business practices.
- Differentiate the functional areas of Human Resource Management at both the strategic and operational level.
- Develop sound Human Resource Management theory addressing diversity management, ethical management and the impact of global forces.
The program was designed with industry-relevant guidelines as determined by both the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI).
