The University of Arizona Global Campus Completes SHRM Realignment for Programs in Human Resource Management

The University of Arizona Global Campus Forbes School of Business and Technology® announced the realignment of its bachelor’s and master’s level programs in Human Resource Management with the Society for Human Resource Management HR curriculum guidelines.

Joey Price, CEO of Jumpstart: HR and UAGC Human Resources Management Advisory Committee member said, “HR students of today need to position themselves to tackle the business challenges of the future. By aligning our programs with SHRM’s guidelines, we fortify our students with the skills and perspectives needed to be marketable today and thrive in the future. Kudos to our team for their foresight and diligence to make this a reality.”

“Aligning UAGC HR management curriculum with SHRM standards—at both the undergraduate and graduate levels—ensures that graduates will have the knowledge that prepares them to compete in the HR field,” said Rebecca Davis, manager of UAGC Career Services and expert career advisor. “Graduates of UAGC will not only be knowledgeable about diversity in hiring and workplace culture, but also up-to-date on HR management best-practices in the field.”

“Knowing that my UAGC Master of Human Resource Management degree aligns with industry and educational best practices gives me confidence that the value of my education will increase over time—I am developing mastery of the current, innovative, and inclusive practices in the HR industry,” said Amanda Johnson, current graduate student and expert career advisor.

The guidelines are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards. The SHRM curriculum templates are based on extensive research that is revalidated every three to five years.
