What’s the value of HR Studies courses?

As with other ILR courses, they provide hands-on experience through cases and projects, as well as opportunities to learn from instructors who are well-versed in both theory and practice.  Recruiters and employers in business as well as other professions look for the types of skills that HR courses provide, including:

  • Business knowledge
  • Strategic thinking
  • Analytical skills
