Human Resource Management (Accelerated)

Our human resource management major is one of only 10 undergraduate programs across the country to be endorsed by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) based on the guidelines created by SHRM and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

An HR Management Program for Working Adults

Complete your degree in as little as 18-24 months! (based on program and transfer credit)

Thirteen major content areas, based on extensive research analysis, prepare you to lead employees in high performance work practices. The major can also help you prepare for the Human Resource Management Certification programs (PHR and GPHR).


Start taking classes when it’s convenient for you—in-person or online.

Our courses are designed for working adults like you—so you can work, spend time with family and friends, and still earn your degree.

There's no need to wait months to start taking classes. At Mount Mercy, we have nine start dates throughout the year, and class blocks are every five weeks.
