Human Resource Management

Masters' Advantage Plan (MAP)

 

Qualified students have the option to utilize select credits earned from their Bachelor of Arts in Human Resource Management toward the Masters' in Human Resource Management.  The Masters' Advantage Plan uniquely allows students the opportunity to determine whether or not they wish to complete the MHRM within a year's time or over 2-3 years part-time.  The ability to use the undergraduate credits is contingent upon acceptance into the Master's in Human Resource Management Program (MHRM).  Matriculation into the MHRM takes place upon completion of the Undergraduate Degree.

Once accepted into the MHRM, students may apply up to 18 credits from their undergraduate human resource management courses (37:533) towards the Master's in Human Resource Management.  This is provided the student receives a "B" or better in each transferable undergraduate course, and provided the student applies for the MHRM within five years after receiving their undergraduate degree.  The MHRM is a 48 credit degree program which may be reduced to 30 credits if 18 credits are utilized from the Undergraduate Program.  Applicable courses and their graduate course transfer equivalents are listed in the grid below.

Students who are not a declared HRM major or minor may also apply up to 18 credits from applicable human resource management courses to the Master's in Human Resource Management (MHRM) provided they have met the stipulations stated above. 

Students can only substitute core graduate courses with approved electives, for comparable classes taken toward their BA degree in which they received a grade of "B" or higher.
