The need for qualified HR professionals is on the rise.

Through this program, you can gain a strategic understanding of HR and its role in both business results and human capital development. Build the fundamental HR skills to manage your organization’s most important asset—its people—with best practices in position planning, recruitment, and retention. Explore how to maximize employee productivity through effective training, coaching, compensation, and development programs. Learn to use HR metrics to audit and improve employee and business success.
As a human resource professional, I am passionate about helping others reach their full potential through effective training and development. I decided to pursue a second master’s degree and felt the program at Walden was aligned with my professional goal: to enhance my leadership skills to secure a leadership role within the organization.
Looking back on my MBA program, it is impossible for me to not recognize the leaps and bounds of progress I have made both personally and professionally.
While I was deployed to Iraq, I conducted research and determined Walden University would be a great fit, allowing me to achieve the credibility I need to meet my goals for the future.
