Human Resource Management Certificate

Unleash the Power of HR

HCD’s Human Resource Management Certificate provides a curriculum of interrelated workshops that build comprehensive knowledge and skills in essential HR fundamentals, from talent acquisition to total rewards.

While learning to demonstrate HR’s value and executing business-centric practices through case exercises and simulations, participants also glean insight from each other and an opportunity to network across a wide range of business sectors.

Participants receive instruction from experienced practitioners, who guide them on the path to becoming HR leaders and business partners.

After completing the six-workshop series, certificate earners will join an HR community that includes academic researchers and senior HR executives regarded as some of the best in the world.

It is highly recommended that Essentials of Human Resources and Human Resources and the Law be taken first.

Human Resources and the Law can be applied to this certificate if also completed for the Advanced Employee Relations and Investigations Certificate. Other workshops may only be applied toward this certificate.
