Human Resource majors help organizations manage employees. They learn to recruit employees, develop training programs, manage pay systems and benefit plans, motivate and reward desired behaviors and help set strategic direction. Human resource managers are at the heart of dynamic events and changes such as mergers, downsizing, entering business and adopting quality management processes.


The Human Resource Management major is one of eight majors that comprise the College of Business at UW Oshkosh. Other majors include: Accounting, Economics, Finance, Information Systems, Marketing, Management, and Supply Chain Operations Management.

Our HR program is one of the few nationwide that covers all of the body of knowledge recommended by the Society for Human Resource Management, the largest international association of human resource professionals. The HR Major incorporates practical, applied learning through a variety of real-world class assignments and projects. To prepare students for a career in human resource management, our courses emphasize mastery of HR concepts, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication through individual and small group projects.
