Online Master of Science in Human Resource Management
It is crucial to have the skills to manage an increasingly diverse and international workplace for professionals already working in human resources as well as college graduates of any background interested in pursuing a career in human resource management.
The Online Master of Science in Human Resource Management (Online MSHRM) at Florida International University offers a well designed curriculum with input from HR industry executives, while providing hands-on experience and skills in practical HR applications. The curriculum covers every management function an HR department addresses, including, staffing and performance appraisals, employment law, training and development, safety and health, compensation and benefits, and HR information systems.
The Online MSHRM offered entirely online offers you the flexibility and convenience of attending class from wherever you want while also preparing you for the most valued professional certification exams in the field—those of the Society for Human Resource Management's Certification Institute. Additionally, the program grants students a one-year membership to SHRM and funds qualifying students to take one PHR or SPHR certification exam.
Our online faculty includes many well-known scholars in the discipline and members of the editorial boards of the most prestigious human resources journals.
A majority of the students in our program are working HR professionals and, as a result, they are interested primarily in practical applications of the material.
Our online courses and instructors recognize students' interest in procedural ("how to") rather than declarative ("defined") knowledge. That's why experiential exercises, case studies, and other engaging and active forms of applied learning are a critical part of our program.
Scholarships are available for the Fall 2014 semester, including $5,000 Merit scholarships and $500 Textbook scholarships.
