The Master's in Human Resources and Labor Relations program offers the Graduate Certificate in International Human Resources and Labor Relations. The certificate responds to the increasing influence of globalization on the practice of Human Resource Management and the conduct of Labor Relations. Firms and unions are increasingly part of a complex web of international economic relationships. Many of the workplace innovations now taken for granted began overseas: quality circles, work groups and flatter hierarchies. Many firms operate overseas under very different labor market institutions and human resource expectations. The program of study provides practical and theoretical knowledge designed to help students function as professionals in the increasing broad international context of human resource management and labor relations.
Students can complete the Graduate Certificate in International Human Resources and Labor Relations while enrolled either part-time or full-time, and by taking courses during the evening. With the approval of the program, students admitted to the MHRLR degree program may apply courses taken to meet certificate requirements toward their degree.
