  • Why Study Human Resource Management at Le Moyne College?

    In every business, the most important resource is the human resource. And yet, when people hear the term “Human Resources,” very often they think of an office whose primary responsibility is for hiring and firing employees.

    Today, HR's scope extends far beyond that more traditional role. The profession has evolved dramatically and human resource managers today are charged with ensuring that a company is utilizing its best critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and creative minds to help the enterprise grow and succeed. HR professionals need to be well versed in a variety of disparate yet vital functions, from talent sourcing, compensation and benefits, employee development and training, performance assessments and legal compliance.

    Program Highlights

    Rooted in our Jesuit ideal of "cura personalis," or care of the whole person, Le Moyne's human resource program will challenge you to consider how so many of the different facets of human resource management fulfill the core needs of the employees as whole, well-rounded people. Guided by our rigorous liberal arts program, you will stand out as an ethical and culturally aware human resource professional, ready to benefit a company's bottom line in a variety of roles, from a generalist to corporate recruiter to benefits specialist to organizational learning officer, to name but a few.
