How Mursion Enhances the HR Learning Experience

Through virtual reality simulations, human resource management students practice and gain real-life skills.

HR managers conduct some of the business world’s most important and difficult conversations: Announcing a promotion and explaining to a different employee why they didn’t get the job, or presenting a complex new benefits package.

An MS in Human Resource Management can help you develop and hone the communication skills you need to advance your HR career. And Walden University’s online master’s in human resource management degree program gives you the tools to do just that.

How Mursion Enhances the HR Learning Experience

Walden’s program offers an innovative virtual reality simulation tool called Mursion that lets master’s candidates practice high-stakes conversations in a safe environment. The immersive experience begins as students meet the HR department in a fictitious organization where they will participate as problem-solving professionals. Students engage in interactive simulations throughout the curriculum, using a customized set of responsive avatars.

With Mursion, you learn by doing. Engaging and authentic experiences simulate challenging interpersonal exchanges. You’ll practice skills that include verbal and nonverbal communication, listening, interviewing, and coaching and mentoring. And you’ll collaborate with colleagues and instructors to reflect on and improve these skills.

In partnering with Mursion, Walden joins other innovators like the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), which selected the simulation technology to use in learning institutes for school leaders.1
