Human Resource Management (B.B.A.)
Learn to unleash the best in others, and yourself.
No asset is more important to a business than its people. That's why human resources has moved beyond practices of personnel management and staff development to become a strategic cornerstone at many successful businesses. At UND, Human Resource Management majors combine a thorough education in HR basics such as recruitment, compensation and training with the fundamentals of operating a business.

Why Study Human Resource Management at UND?
An organization is only as strong as the people who work for it. As a graduate of our Human Resource Management program, you'll be prepared to carry out the critical tasks of recruiting, selecting, compensating, training and appraising employees. And as a student in our Nistler College of Business & Public Administration, you'll learn how HR fits into the big picture of running an organization — because the decision-making and planning that go into ensuring your staff shines needs to work seamlessly with other aspects.
Human Resource Management courses follow guidelines established by the Society for Human Resource Management and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
