The Global Human Resources Management Certificate Program focuses on the application of best practices that are necessary in the growing field of global workforce management. Increasingly, the business world is operating more globally, workplace interactions are getting faster, and the international business is operating 24 hours a day and seven days a week. These developments require a new skillset – an understanding of global workforce leadership that can be applied across datelines and borders.

This program addresses the skills and knowledge required for individuals to be prepared for global human resources management.
