It’s no secret that for most companies today, developing talent is crucial to success in an intensely competitive global marketplace. For those organizations looking to maximize employee performance and staff development, training and education are a must. At the SHRM conference that ended today, Drexel University highlighted how that education should start with the company’s HR professionals – with one innovative twist.

Typically, HR professionals receive their Master’s in Human Resource Development from a college’s business school but Drexel University takes a different approach and offers their program through the School of Education. “In a global economy driven by knowledge, organizations with the most talented staff are going to come out ahead” says Dr. Ken Hartman, President of Drexel University Online. “For Human Resources professionals at universities, governments and business, this means an increased focus on guiding their workforce through advanced education. An advanced degree from a School of Education can help HR professionals stand out in their field and make them key leaders in tomorrow's society."

With concentrations available in business, education or global settings, Drexel’s program is suitable for human resource professionals, managers and executives in a wide variety of industries. Classes are offered online so professionals have the flexibility to take classes on their own schedule from anywhere. And, students receive the same prestigious degree online, as on campus.
