WAUKESHA, WIS.— The Society for Human Resource Management recently reviewed the curriculum of the human resources emphasis of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree offered by Carroll University. The review concluded that Carroll's HR curriculum continues to be fully aligned with SHRM guides for professional knowledge, established in 2005, revalidated in 2011 and effective from January 2012 to December 2014.
"Thank you for being an example to other universities through your strong HR curriculum in the BS program," wrote Nancy Woolever, director of academic initiatives at SHRM, in her congratulatory letter.
SHRM approval allows Carroll faculty and students to have access to proprietary instructional resources, including case studies, DVDs and research reports. "It is important that students don't learn in isolation from the professional community," said Frances Tuer, assistant professor of business. "Having up-to-date knowledge and including SHRM's approval of our undergraduate program on students' resumes will give them more credibility while searching for a job in human resources."
SHRM advances the HR profession by creating curriculum and ensuring its use, investing in teaching and assessment materials for bachelor's and master's degree programs, and preparing professionals through internships. It also serves the professional by providing products, services and tools for continued education.
