June 4, 2014

07/20/2012–A recent recognition has put Bryan’s MBA Onsite and MBA Online with a concentration in Human Resource Management in an elite circle of institutions offering similar programs.

Dr. Michael Chase, dean of adult and graduate studies, said the college has been notified that the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) “has acknowledged that its MBA with a concentration in Human Resource Management fully aligns with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.”

SHRM is “recognized nationally as playing a vital role in setting quality standards in HR programs,” Dr. Chase said. “It is the professional organization in the world for HR practitioners.”

Throughout the world, 280 programs in 219 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its Curriculum Guidebook and Templates. “The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum human resources content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels,” Dr. Chase said.

For Bryan to earn this recognition, Dr. Chase said “all of the curriculum for the MBA with the HRM concentration was submitted to SHRM for review. After a careful analysis, it was determined that the program did meet the established content guidelines.”

In addition to the HR concentration, Bryan also offers an MBA with a concentration in Marketing. In the undergraduate program, the college offers concentrations in Healthcare Administration and Human Resource Management as part of the Bachelor of Science degree in business administration program.
