    • Demonstrate knowledge of common professional components of the business environment, including those central to HR

    Career Opportunities

    This degree is designed to position students for a broader range of professional opportunities than those at the certificate or associate degree level. A key benefit to the emphasis in Human Resource Management is the doors this background opens. With many types of organizations—small businesses, corporations, government agencies, schools, and accounting firms, just to name a few— always in need of knowledgeable HR professionals, post-graduate employment opportunities are plentiful.

    High Earning Potential and Career Advancement

    This in-demand profession allows graduates with a Bachelor’s degree and knowledge of Human Resources Management the opportunity to advance in both their careers and salaries. Illustrating the opportunity for earning potential is the recent update from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

    According to the BLS, human resource managers with their Bachelor’s degree and five years of work experience earned a median annual salary of $110,120 in 2017. And with the the BLS projecting 9% growth for the hiring of human resource managers from 2016-2026, opportunities are abundant for qualified professionals.

    For many students and parents, loans represents an important resource to help finance educational expenses. Northwestern College participates in the federal student loan program which allows students and their parents to borrow money to help meet their educational costs. A loan is a borrowed money that is expected to be paid back with interest. When you take out a student loan, you are making a legal obligation to repay the loan, so carefully consider the amount you borrow. Be a responsible borrower and borrow only what you need.
