Villanova University Is Taking Their Leading Master of Science in Human Resource Development Degree Online
Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) December 17, 2009 -- Open enrollment has begun for Villanova’s newly online HR master’s degree program, which is ideal for working professionals whose busy schedules can’t accommodate a campus-based program. With the university’s Master of Science in Human Resource Development debuting online in March 2010, location is no longer a barrier to the world-class education for which it is known. Villanova has been ranked #1 Master’s University in the Northern Region for nearly two decades by U.S. News & World Report.
“With this program, Villanova introduces online convenience to the proven, ground-based HR master’s program it established more than 25 years ago,” says Adele Lindenmeyr, PhD and Dean of Graduate Studies for the university’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. “Now students virtually anywhere can expand their HR skills and credentials by earning a master’s in human resources degree entirely online – from the same accomplished HR faculty who teach here on campus. The program removes the barriers of time and location, putting an HR master’s degree within reach for many who otherwise might not be able to fit a traditional campus-based graduate education into their schedule.”
The timing of Villanova’s online human resource master’s degree couldn’t be more advantageous for potential candidates. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, overall HR employment is projected to jump 17% by 2016. Those completing their master’s in human resources will be in a prime position to meet the growing demand for highly skilled professionals in the HR field. The credential will help graduates distinguish themselves, and give them the opportunity to experience greater job stability, earning potential, career mobility and professional fulfillment.
Villanova’s online graduate degree courses in human resource development cover topics that include: human resource planning, organizational change, compensation, international human resources, project management for HR professionals and organizational training.
