DePaul University, in cooperation with BIBF, is pleased to provide a Master of Science degree in Human Resources through its highly ranked Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. The MSHR allows the flexibility to facilitate career changes into HR from other functional areas in both the public and private sectors. It is also highly recommended for those already in the HR field who aspire to General and Top management HR positions. Because an interdisciplinary background is appropriate for HR, a combination of courses in business and social sciences is useful. Employment of human resource professionals is expected to grow about 10 to 20 percent this decade.
The Kellstadt Graduate School of Business is fully accredited by AACSB International -The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This is the twelfth year in a row that it has been ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top 10 part-time business programmes in the U.S.
Human Resources professionals help organisations strategically meet workplace challenges including employee attraction and retention, diversity, the global economy, mergers and acquisitions, new technology systems, incentives for improving human performance, restructuring, employee ownership, total rewards and performance management.
