Society of Human Resources Management recognizes TROY's master's program

Posted: Tuesday, 02 March 2010

TROY—Troy University’s Master of Science in Human Resource Management (MSHRM) program has been recognized by Society for Human Resource Management as being fully aligned with the program’s recommended guidelines for HR education.

“The recognition of the MSHRM program by the Society for Human Resources Management is another indicator of the quality of TROY’s business programs and their close relationship to the world of business,” said Dr. Kaye Sheridan, interim dean of the Sorrell College of Business.

There are less than 30 human resources management masters programs nationally that align with SHRM’s educational objectives. This list includes, among others, DePaul University, NYU, Ohio State, Rutgers, Texas A&M, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Tennessee.

SHRM is the world’s largest professional association devoted to human resource management. Founded in 1948, SHRM represents more than 250,000 individual members in over 125 countries.

In 2006, the SHRM Board approved an initiative to help the Society define and develop HR education at university business schools across the nation. One of the initiatives was to develop a Curriculum Guidebook and Templates which identify core topics that should be required in degree programs.
