Human Resource Management (HRM) professionals perform many vital business activities in organizations. As both private and public sector organizations have become more concerned about such issues as legal compliance, corporate culture, and ensuring employee work behaviors are aligned with strategic objectives, the demand for well-trained HRM professionals has increased greatly.

Practitioners in HRM are involved in a variety of important, interesting, and challenging activities. They establish and implement policies that affect such organizational functions as recruitment, selection, training and development, performance management, compensation and benefits.

Our program is ranked among the top 20 Human Resource Management programs in the US, and placed as the #3 undergraduate HRM program in New Jersey by College Factual. The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) has acknowledged that our curriculum is fully aligned with SHRM's competency model for the HR profession. This connection to the profession, coupled with Rider's engaged learning program, makes Rider a great place to study Human Resource Management.

Graduates from the Human Resource Management program will be able to:

  • Defend the role of the Human Resource function in organizations’ sustainability
  • Discuss some of the fundamental employment laws that govern fair and ethical Human Resource Management decision making
  • Explain how effective job analysis/job design is critical for all other HR activities

  • Cite and discuss examples of HR best practices from your own experiences, from the experiences of classmates, and from current events and case studies
  • Design HR systems that are appropriate in terms of the organization’s strategy and culture, and that incorporate principles of psychometrics, legal defensibility, employee social demands, and return on investments
