Why Bachelor's in Human Resource Management at UT Dallas?

  • HR is supply chain for talent, ensuring the business acquires the right people, at the right time, in the right place, and with the exact skills required to execute the business strategy. This requires a variety of competencies (e.g., talent acquisition, training and development, reward systems, and employee relations) and a relentless focus on "What will it take for our people, and therefore the organization, to be more effective?"
  • HR is an ideal major for someone who desires a career in business but doesn't want to sit in a cubicle in front of a spreadsheet all day. Success in HRM requires one to continuously monitor the organization, its people, and environment in which they operate. This requires hands-on fact finding, real-time problem solving, and direct evaluation - none of which can be done from a cube or office.

  • Human resource management is an integral part of organizations across all industries, as well as consulting, meaning your HR skill set is entirely transferrable from one organization to another. Your career options are not limited to one particular industry or segment.
  • The HR profession is growing rapidly as the importance of talent to organizational success is increasingly recognized. For example, a recent article in Harvard Business Review* suggests the CHRO may have more influence than any other direct report to the CEO.

  • SHRM, the leading professional association in human resources, has recognized UTD's BS-HRM as being in alignment with its curriculum guidelines. As a result, students graduating from UTD with the bachelors in HRM are eligible to sit for the SHRM-CP certification exam during their senior year (students graduating from non-aligned programs must wait 1-2 years after graduation before they can take the exam).
  • Students graduating from a focused HRM program with their SHRM-CP in hand will have a significant advantage in the job market for new HR professionals.
