School of Management Receives International Recognition

JUNEAU (January 29, 2016) – The School of Management at the University of Alaska Southeast has received international recognition for its Human Resource Management program. The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) recognized that the Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resource Management degree program at the University of Alaska Southeast fully aligns with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.

Fewer than 400 programs at 291 educational institutions worldwide are recognized by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates. The guidelines — created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010 and 2013 — are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow industry standards.

Additionally, the School of Management is the only institution in Alaska to offer a Human Resource Management emphasis. The online delivery of this degree program reaches students across Alaska, from Kotzebue to Ketchikan and everywhere in between.
