Human Resource Management degree program introduced at Peirce College

As we’ve talked about in the past, Peirce’s understanding of the Philadelphia region’s employment outlook plays an important role in the development of degree programs. We want to offer programs that will best prepare our students for the job market. In the past year, we’ve launched Healthcare and Accounting degree programs in response to employment trends in this region, and today we’re adding another offering to the Peirce program roster.

As employer demand for human resources professionals grows in the Greater Philadelphia Region, Peirce College today unveiled a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resource Management (HRM).

The field is poised for faster than average growth and HR professionals are taking on increasingly strategic roles in companies both large and small. That makes now a great time to explore career opportunities in human resources and the education necessary to win those positions.

Peirce’s new degree in Human Resource Management is designed to equip students with the essential skills required to enter or advance in the HR field, or to enhance their managerial career opportunities with a solid understanding of HR principles.

A full news release detailing the new Human Resource Management program was distributed on Business Wire.
