One Step Closer: SHRM

 

Great news! WilmU’s bachelor’s and master’s in Human Resource Management programs are acknowledged by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) as being in full alignment with its suggested HR curriculum.

WilmU’s bachelor’s and master’s in Human Resource Management programs have joined 450 programs in 340 educational institutions worldwide that are acknowledged by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) as being in full alignment with its suggested HR curriculum. WilmU’s programs meet the core HR topics, as well as elective HR topics determined by the SHRM that ensure universities are offering curricula that prepares HR professionals for the workplace.

The undergraduate program recently underwent a renewal but has been officially aligned since 2009. The master’s program received its official notice in July of 2017.

The SHRM curriculum guidebook and templates were developed to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The guidelines, created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010 and 2013, are part of SHRM’s academic initiative to define HR education standards taught in business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.

“Our Human Resource programs are evaluated regularly by our advisory boards and college faculty to ensure that we are preparing our students for the real-world challenges they will face in the workplace,” says Dr. Weinstein, chair of the Human Resource Management program. “The recognition by SHRM is an important aspect in our efforts to ensure that students are equipped and empowered to be leaders in the industry.” WU
