Human Resource Management Certificate Program

The University of Miami Human Resource Management Certificate Program prepares students for the ever-evolving field of human resources. Through an in-depth view of organizational structure, the program explores topics that include the role of professionals with HR functions in building a thriving business culture, managing organizational change, handling conflict resolution, increasing employee retention, and maximizing employee performance.

Taught by instructors who are subject matter experts, the six-month program is perfect for aspiring and seasoned HR professionals who want to develop or reinforce their knowledge of HR concepts and practices. Newcomers to the field, or those with management responsibilities, will build a solid working foundation of core HR principles.

Small business owners, front-line managers, and others who deal with personnel issues regularly will also find great value in this program.

Program graduates will receive a certificate of completion from the University of Miami. Students will also receive a 12-month membership to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
