HR professionals often have bachelor’s degrees in non-HR fields. The Human Resource Management (HRM) graduate certificate is designed so they can acquire specific Human Resource Management knowledge in five broad areas.
The Human Resource Management graduate certificate program requires completion of five courses (14 to 15 credits) that are all available online.
No GMAT or GRE required.
More information on the program structure and courses can be viewed in the Graduate Catalog.
To qualify for admission to the certificate program in good standing, you must have a bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited institution with an overall grade point average (G.P.A.) of 2.75 or above.
Applicants must also demonstrate evidence of ability to succeed in graduate-level HR coursework. Evidence of this could include relevant work experience, GMAT scores, or professional certification (e.g., PHR or SPHR).
If you do not meet the G.P.A. requirements you may be admitted on a conditional basis. Submit a request more information form and a program representative will be in touch.
Note: Students in the Human Resource Management graduate certificate program may enroll in the Master of Business Administration at UW-Whitewater if they meet the admission criteria for that program. Certificate courses that are part of the MBA program can count toward completion of that degree at a later date.
