Whether you’re looking to work in employee compensation, labor relations or employee management, an MBA in human resources may help you be able to consider several career paths. Here are just a few of the positions that you may consider after you graduate from DeVry’s MBA with a Specialization in Human Resources:
- Human resources manager: HR managers oversee a team of other HR professionals and play an important role in setting hiring standards and practices, such as recruiting and interviewing. They may also serve as a link between a company and its employees.
- Compensation and benefits manager: Compensation and benefits managers deal primarily with wage data analysis and cost benefit analysis. While analyzing available information on employee wages, they develop strategies and programs to maximize budget efficiency and maintain employee satisfaction while working to improve benefits and resources.
- Training and development manager: Training and development managers are responsible for training new hires. They also manage training budgets and the development of training materials.
- Technical recruiter: Technical recruiters work with hiring managers to help identify and screen candidates. They may also collaborate with the hiring manager to determine reasonable technical expectations for specific roles.
Keep in mind that job titles and requirements are not standardized across the industry. Two jobs with similar or identical titles may have different minimum application requirements depending on the employer that is offering the job.
