Why Rutgers (Oct 2015)

Our Human Resources graduate program is part of a very top tier group of HR
programs recognized on a global basis. We have the most HR faculty
dedicated to advancing the field and a program which focuses on developing
leading-edge skill and imparting state-of-the art knowledge within a global context. We are centered in the major Northeast metropolitan area with immediate access to hundreds of employers. While our program is anchored in strong research based knowledge we have an equal emphasis on applied skill building. For example, we champion several case project competitions sponsored by Corporations to hone student skill in analyzing time-sensitive
critical HR issues faced by an organization. Presentations of applied recommendations are given to top HR executive teams of sponsoring organizations. Our diverse classes number about 30 and in-depth class discussion and participation is also a hallmark of our program.

Why the Human Resources Profession: It is about employment

Numerous surveys indicate that HR continues to grow as a profession with
robust employment opportunities (companies such as GE, IBM, Ingersoll Rand, Siemens). Graduates from our program earn from 55,000-88,000 as starting salaries; mean of 73K. We place 80% either before or 60 days after graduation. The remaining 20% gain employment
typically in about 4-5 months following graduation. Nearly 100% of our students gain meaningful summer internships. We have a dedicated HR placement/career services group focused on key employer contact and HR placement facilitation.


For those interested in a career in HR, our Masters is a transformational experience. Our tuition and associated costs compare very favorably to other top ranked HR programs. In addition, we offer scholarships and teaching assistants to support top student development and aid in the completion of the program. A vast majority complete our program in two

I welcome direct contact and hope that this will be of interest to your student community. Our website www.mhrm.rutgers.edu provides further information.

We have an Open House 5-7:30 pm November 4 in our Levin Building and registration to attend will soon be available on our SMLR/MHRM website.
