Human Resources

Certificate

Program number: 901161CERT

Overview

The Human Resources certificate at Madison College is designed to help you refresh your skills in order to maintain or pursue a career in human resources. You will learn the nature of human management, strategic planning, issues in human resources, analyze and staff jobs, payroll compensation, benefits management, training, and how to develop human resources.

Learn two keys to effective management: results and relationships, in the context of the traditional managerial elements of planning, organizing, directing and controlling. Students also will learn techniques for problem solving, critical thinking, decision making, delegation, motivation, change management, and politically savvy behavior, and apply these techniques through simulations, role-playing and case studies.

One of the courses also emphasizes development of Emotional Intelligence (EI), including self-assessment, as well as learning and applying specific techniques to improve each element of EI.

These 12 credits can also be used towards earning your associate degree in Human Resources.
