Master of Human Resource Management

MHRM Classroom

The success of the MHRM program resides in its unique elements, curriculum innovation, and real-world learning.

Fisher intentionally limits program size to encourage collaboration, promote relationships between faculty and students, and allow for more personalized instruction. The Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM) classroom experience is intimate, interactive, and hands-on. Students work in teams on projects to mirror the real-world business environment.

The MHRM core curriculum is offered exclusively in the evening to provide part-time flexibility for working professionals while remaining perfectly suited to full-time students right out of undergrad. Much like the core coursework, students can take elective classes in the evening, but we also have options during the day. Fisher even allows you to be flexible on when you start the program. Applications are accepted for both spring and autumn terms.
