Graduates are effectively prepared to face the

challenges of marketing, technology, manage-
ment, and finance at the global level from a
strategic, competent perspective with each
election, world event, software implementa-
tion, and restructuring. Practical instruction is
led by professional practitioners who work in
the fields they teach and work in organiza-
tions that deal with HR on a global level. This
concentration is ideal for HR professionals with
several years of experience who are looking
to challenge themselves and become more
marketable by learning about the international
marketplace.
For anyone interested in applying to a global
corporation, or is currently playing a key role
in an organization’s transition into going glob-
al or being merged or acquired by a global
organization, this concentration will benefit
those interested in learning world issues, laws
and trends, and HR strategy at the global level.
As the world becomes smaller via 21st century
practices, corporate objectives and communi-
cation avenues, understanding all aspects of
the “globalization” of functions becomes es-
sential.
