Organizational Behavior and Human Resources (OBHR)
Human Resources involves the interaction of people at work. Communication skills are key for Human Resources professionals, plus having the patience for problem-solving. Human Resources, or HR, is the ultimate service career.
HR professionals are needed in every aspect of business. HR offers a variety of opportunities to fit different skills, whether you prefer a high-level of personal interaction (training, interviewing, evaluating), or working with regulations and numbers (employment law, quality improvement, analysis).
What makes our HR program unique and successful is that it is part of a larger business education. Not only will you study and understand the HR world, you will have the expertise to work in many areas of business. Herman Krannert, for whom our school is named, believed strongly that a business person with wide-ranging skills was infinitely more valuable than a specialist. Employers seem to agree.
Our HR program has high placement rates and HR as an industry is projected to have better than average career opportunities.
