Human Resources Track

Job growth for human resources managers is projected to increase nearly 10% by 2024, faster than the average for all other occupations.1  HR professionals with legal compliance training are projected to experience a pay boost of 14.7% during the same time period.2  Today’s highly regulated workplace demands that these directors, managers and administrators have the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate a growing number of complex employment laws and regulations.
