Briar Cliff earns recognition from the Society for Human Resource Management

SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Briar Cliff University’s Master of Arts in Management degree program has been recognized by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) for the master’s program’s human resource track, which aligns with SHRM’s Human Resource Curriculum Guidebook and Templates. 

The Human Resource Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum human resource content areas that should be studied by students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The guidelines -- created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010 and 2013 -- are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define human resource education standards taught in university business schools.

Briar Cliff's Master of Arts in Management is an online program designed for business professionals with a bachelor’s degree in a related discipline. Students of the program tackle 21st-century workforce challenges and cultivate strategic ways to meet the critical needs of managing today’s workforce.

More than 285,000 professionals from around the world rely on SHRM for their human resource solutions. Throughout the world, 449 programs at 339 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates.
