The Human Resource Management program is the only AACSB-accredited undergraduate HR program in the region with seven complete courses in the major area.  Our graduates have tended to be hired as generalists in small, mid-sized, and larger companies.  One of the reasons the Human Resource Management program is becoming a major force in the region is its focus on project-based learning that provides the graduate with a portfolio of professional projects they have completed during their training.

  • We strongly suggest that all undergraduate Human Resource Management majors select an "Internship" (MGMT 4940) as their capstone experience.  Students with internships are more likely to get hired immediately after graduation than students without internship experience.
  • A large number of our graduates sit for the Professional in Human Resource (PHR) Certification after graduation.  UT graduates historically have had a very high pass rate (85%) compared with the national average (57%).
  • Our program is aligned with the Society for Human Resource Management's curriculum guidelines.  This means that we cover all important topics and functions that our national professional organization suggests are crucial for HR professionals.
  • The outlook for Human Resources is very promising, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics "Outlook for HR Managers."  The profession is expected to grow 13% during the period from 2012-2022.
