Human Resource Management (Business Admin. Concentration)

Central Penn College’s Business Administration degree now offers a Human Resource Management concentration is as part of our Business Administration bachelor’s degree program.

If you’ve ever worked for an outside employer, you know that the job is not just the place you work — it’s the people who power the organization forward. Finding and keeping skilled professionals is more challenging than ever in this post-pandemic economy, which has been crippled by the Great Resignation, “quiet quitting” and other emerging trends that are challenging today’s workforce. Our concentration in human resource management will help to meet that need.

Finding the right person for every job, where required skills match the qualifications and personalities of job-seekers, is only one key dimension of human resource management.

Benefits and compensation; diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging; interpersonal conflicts; ethics; and more are all part of the human resource equation. Students in this concentration will learn about workforce training and development, effective recruitment and retention strategies, current ethical and regulatory issues in employment, effective techniques to evaluable performance, ways to craft lucrative compensation and benefit programs, labor-management relations, and more. 

With this specialized skill set, you can work in government, industry, nonprofits, or consulting, maximizing the power of people to sell your product or service and advance your mission. 

If your talent lies in finding top talent and keeping employees engaged, human resources is the match for you!
