Human resources professionals are increasingly becoming an integral part of an organization’s strategic planning process. MTSU’s new Human Resources Leadership concentration allows working professionals to earn a Master of Professional Studies (M.P.S.) around their schedules and boost their careers through a 24/7 online program. The 33-hour degree plan culminates with a professional project, typically related to the student’s work. Company executives today are turning to HR professionals for policy directives and creative ways to use human capital for improved performance results. The HR Leadership coursework focuses on a variety of workplace factors (economic, environmental, ethical, legal, political, and administrative) and the impact they can have on organizational productivity, performance, and behavior. The program helps students build a strong foundation in HR principles and procedures and develop critical thinking skills required to make decisions and solve problems concerning the human side of an organization.
