SCHAUMBURG, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American InterContinental University (AIU), a leader in online education, announced today that its Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree programs with specializations in Human Resource Management have renewed their alignment with the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM)’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.
SHRM’s guidelines were created to help define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help educators develop degree programs that follow these standards. The SHRM alignment underscores the value of AIU’s specialized programs, which allow students to take more courses devoted to their field of study, on average, than at other similar schools.
“This recognition illustrates AIU’s commitment to providing students with truly career-focused degree programs,” said Dr. Robert Manzer, Provost and Chief Academic Officer at AIU. “The SHRM alignment follows numerous reviews and assessments conducted by SHRM that are designed to ensure that AIU’s human resource specializations are industry current and cover topics and competencies employers in the human resources industry value most.”
SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed to define content areas that should be studied by HR students. The SHRM validation means AIU’s Human Resource Management specializations provide students with the skills needed to be successful human resource professionals. The reaffirmation is valid through 2020.
“We’re proud to have earned this designation recognizing the quality of AIU’s BBA and MBA programs, which also are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP),” Manzer said.
SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Throughout the world, the society has recognized 369 programs in 275 educational institutions as being aligned with its HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.
