No matter how you attend, you’ll receive personal attention in small class settings.

Faculty With Real-World Experience

There’s no substitute for experience. 95% of Walsh faculty bring their real-world industry experience into the classroom. You will learn from proven academic business minds who are working or have worked in the roles you may see yourself in one day.

SHRM Curriculum Alignment

The Master of Science in Management Human Resource Concentration is aligned with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) curriculum requirements. MSM-HR concentration students benefit from our unique course design which focuses extensively on the SHRM Body of Applied Skills and Knowledge (BASK). This focus prepares our students for the SHRM certification exam. Candidates for the SHRM-CP certification are not required to hold an HR title and do not need previous HR experience to apply to take the exam. However, a degree from an Academically Aligned program, such as our Master of Science in Management (MSM), is recommended.

What Our Graduates Are Saying

Andrea Klaver, Dual MBA-MGT

Current Student

“I realized due to the Affordable Care Act being passed in 2010, health care and research were going to have to be managed differently. So I’m hoping now to not be just a part of the massive shift that’s underway in health care, but to lead it.”

Tony Vitale, MBA ’16

Enterprise Applications Manager at Plante Moran

“My Walsh MBA experience has helped me to understand business in many more dimensions and assisted me in reaching out to find an extraordinary career opportunity.”

Shaniece Bennett, MBA ’04

Owner, Accutrak Services

“I was in a finance class…I was looking at the text book and my professor said, ‘close the book, let’s talk.’ And I realized that a lot of what I needed to learn was not in a book. It is about people. That is what Walsh does. It made me better prepared for the business world by the way they taught.”

Thomas B. Lanni, Jr., MBA ’05

Vice President of Oncology, Internal Medicine and Imaging at Beaumont Hospital

“Having a larger network of resources allows you the opportunity to learn, share, and potentially find an opportunity that you are interested in pursuing at some point in your career.”
