HR Professionals can enhance their career with an MBA

In an article about North Carolina Masters in HR programs for SHRM’s NC association, the N.C. A&T MBA program was featured prominently.

N.C. A&T MBA Director Eric Gladney said the percentage of HR professionals enrolling in the NCAT program is rising. “There’s a lot of market change occurring [in HR], a lot of students having to retool to keep up with new markets, such as business services and health services,” he said.
The NCAT program involves either online or on-campus study, and evening courses are offered. “Our faculty is very sensitive about trying to balance needs of a [student] that’s working and has a family,” Gladney said.

Although other North Carolina colleges and universities offer HR courses in various settings, WCU and NCAT’s master’s degree programs in HR are the only ones in the state that have been aligned with the curriculum guidelines from the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM).
