Bryan’s Master’s in Human Resources Alignment with SHRM Guidelines Renewed

May 4, 2017

SHRM News PictureMay 4, 2017 – Bryan College recently announced that the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has acknowledged that its Master’s in Human Resources has renewed its alignment with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.

“SHRM is recognized nationally as playing a vital role in setting quality standards in HR programs. It is the global professional organization for HR practitioners,” said Dr. Adina Scruggs, Dean of Adult and Graduate Studies. “When Bryan College introduced the Human Resources concentration in 2012, we quickly sought to align our coursework with the expectations of SHRM.”

Throughout the world, 448 programs in 337 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates. The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The guidelines — created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010 and 2013 — are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.

“This recent recognition of continued alignment keeps Bryan’s MBA with a concentration in Human Resource Management in an elite circle of institutions offering similar programs,” Scruggs said.
