American Sentinel University Expands BS Business Degree to Include Human Resource Management
Aurora, CO Feb 9, 2009 – Because of the increasing need for trained human resources professionals, American Sentinel University, an online school, recently added a new Human Resource Management (HR) specialization to their BS Business degree. The new specialization builds upon the existing business program which includes majors in Administration, Marketing, Management, and eBusiness.
“The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that human resources related jobs will increase almost 20% and more than 1 million professionals will be employed in the field by 2016,” said Richard W. Oliver, PhD, CEO of American Sentinel. “No area of business management is growing in importance faster than Human Resources Management.”
One segment of the population showing an increased interest in HR management is military personnel. “Many of those in the military are enrolling in HR degree programs to prepare for increasing levels of responsibility within the service or their second career after leaving the service,” added Oliver. “American Sentinel developed the HR specialization with this in mind. We are committed to helping service members build a successful future by offering them affordable education in relevant degree programs.
HR professionals are increasingly viewed as business partners who are expected to bring a combination of HR expertise and business knowledge to their positions. The BS Business – Human Resources Management degree prepares graduates to become influential business leaders who understand and help solve the challenges of managing today’s workforce. The program focuses on topics such as recruitment, training, compensation and organizational development.
The B.S. Business – HR Management courses are open for enrollment twice per month.
