Wright State University’s human resource management program is ranked No. 50 out of the nation’s top 100 best affordable programs, higher than those at universities such as Michigan State University, the University of Arkansas and The Ohio State University, according to University Headquarters.
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, University Headquarters is an independent educational organization dedicated to helping students find the best colleges for themselves and plan career paths.
The group based its rankings on the cost of admission, retention rate, graduation rate, estimated graduating salary and other factors.
Wright State’s Raj Soin College of Business offers a business major in human resource management as well as undergraduate and graduate certificates.
The programs prepare graduates to handle the activities of businesses, organizations and nonprofit organizations that affect its employees. Students learn to create an inviting and empowering environment for employees while meeting all legal and compliance procedures required.
University Headquarters said the job outlook for human resources specialists and managers is predicted to grow by 7% between 2019 to 2029, with 64,500 positions available each year. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says the greatest growth is expected to be in the professional and business services industry.
“The knowledge and services of human resources specialists is likely to be in higher demand as they handle ever more complex health care coverage options and employment laws,” said University Headquarters.
In addition to the cost of admission, retention rate, graduation rate, and estimated graduating salary, University Headquarters based its rankings on the admission rate, the number of programs offered, the number of online programs offered, the percentage of students receiving financial aid, the loan default rate and the number of diplomas awarded.
