Keeping Businesses Moving

Business Administration, BBA - Human Resource Management

If you're interested in interacting with people daily and are a successful problem solver, you may enjoy studying human resource management.  The department of a business or organization that hires, manages, and trains employees is called human resources (HR). Many students who graduate with a human resource management degree will go on to become a Human Resource Manager and will be responsible for a broad range of personnel, budgeting, benefits, and payroll administration duties across an organization.  HR managers recruit, onboard and train new employees, and work with multiple department managers to ensure a company has the workers and resources needed to accomplish goals.
