EUGENE, Ore., Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016 ranking for the Best Masters in Human Resources Degree Programs http://www.collegechoice.net/rankings/best-masters-in-human-resources-degree-programs/
Human resource managers are an invaluable member of any team, particularly in businesses and organizations. While other administrative positions work on a business or marketing strategy, these well-trained professionals use their knowledge of psychology and management to build a strong workforce that is well-taken care of and can meet the demands of the changing landscape.
And, as human resource managers become more and more in demand, so too does the demand grow for graduate programs that can prepare students for the challenging workplace environments they will undoubtedly face. That fact has led to the creation of this ranking.
"[Human resource managers] plan, manage, and enforce the policies and rules that govern a given organization. They are also responsible for recruiting, interviewing, hiring, and, yes, firing too," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said at the ranking's release. "That's why it's so important for HR professionals to get an education that prepares them to help manage a company's employees with compassion and a strategy."
College Choice curated its 2016 ranking for Best Masters in Human Resources Degree Programs by collecting information from individual school websites, other ranking sites, and the U.S. News and World Report site. Factors that were the main consideration for this ranking including academic reputation, student retention, networking and internship opportunities, and more.
