You can major in four undergraduate programs: Human Resource Management(HURM), Leadership (OLM), Management (MGMT), or Entrepreneurship, Family, and Small Business (EFSB).  Or, choose to complement your business or non-business major with one of our three minors:  Entrepreneurship, Family, and Small Business, Leadership, or Business Law.  We also offer Human Resource Management, Leadership, and Technological Entrepreneurship as specializations in the Master's of Business Administration program, as well as the Ph.D. in Manufacturing and Technology Management.  Graduate students in any discipline at The University of Toledo can add one of these three specializations to their programs of study.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has announced that the undergraduate major in Human Resource Management at The University of Toledo is aligned with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates. Throughout the world, 448 programs in 336 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates. The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM 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 university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.
