Human Resources at ILR

If you’re looking to prepare for current and future challenges of a changing workplace and world, then we encourage you to explore Cornell’s ILR School.

Our classes in Human Resources (HR) and Organizational Behavior (OB) explore the ways that globalization, technology and laws continuously impact how people and organizations function.

Consulting, public policy, finance, non-profit and law firms that hire ILR students often praise their understanding of management issues like leadership, motivation, and organizational politics. Regardless of your career path, HR and OB skills from ILR can help ensure that you make the deal, pass the bill, get the promotion, and lead people and organizations through their most successful and difficult times.
