After researching many graduate programs in the field of HR, my decision to pursue the MSHROD at EMU was easy. EMU stood out from the rest with its unique mix of both HR / business management and organizational development content, along with the capstone project that not only provided a learning opportunity for me but a valuable project deliverable for a client organization. Additionally, the faculty in the MSHROD program are fantastic subject matter experts with significant business experience outside of the classroom, which really helps frame the material in a context that is better understood and remembered by students. My MSHROD degree has been a critical part of my development as a business leader!

Michelle Baldwin Henderson, MSHROD, SPHR, SHRM-SCP '13

“Earning my MSHROD from Eastern Michigan University provided real work experience in a variety of areas of Human Resources. At times, I was able to complete projects for work through projects for my classes that allowed for meaningful progress both personally and professionally. Attending classes on-line and on Saturdays in Livonia allowed me to focus on my career and my educational needs simultaneously, while still being home with family in the evenings. Through group projects, I met other professionals who I consider lifelong friends and colleagues in my community. The HROD curriculum not only prepared me for the next step in my career, but also complemented my studies for my professional certifications. Anyone who is interested in a career in Human Resources would benefit greatly from this experience!”

"The MSHROD program has opened many, many doors for me. There are faculty members that I still communicate with and prior classmates that are a part of my network. The graduate assistantship I held was a launching platform into my current career path. My MSHROD letters alone are a confidence builder, a conversation starter and the catalyst for boundless opportunities."
