Fox’s undergrad program in Human Resource Management recognized

December 8, 2014 //

An undergraduate program at Temple University’s Fox School of Business has been recognized among those with the finest graduation rates in the country.

The Fox School’s Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resource Management earned a No. 7 national rank in a recent report that highlighted the country’s top-25 such programs, published last month by HumanResourcesMBA.net.

“The Fox School and the Human Resource Management department are honored to be included in this rankings report, which speaks to the quality of our students, faculty and curriculum, and our reputation as a leader in business education,” said Fox School Dean M. Moshe Porat.

The website’s report recognized undergraduate human resource management programs that have aligned their respective curricula within the guidelines provided by the Society for Human Resource Management, as well as those housed within business schools exclusively accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. HumanResourcesMBA.net also noted that recent rankings by U.S. News and World Report guided its rankings report.

“The faculty and staff within the Fox School’s Human Resource Management department are excited to have received this recognition,” said Dr. Deanna Geddes, Chair of the Fox School’s Human Resource Management department. “We have worked to not only design a curriculum that provides students with the knowledge, skills and experiences that make them attractive to employers, but one that also emphasizes the importance of pro-social and ethical approaches to managing the firm’s most-valuable resource: its people.

“Our efforts have enabled us to develop a curriculum that both instructs students on the fundamentals of managing human resources, and also challenges them to apply their knowledge to solve real-world HR problems.”

The Fox School’s BBA in Human Resource Management received praise from HumanResourcesMBA.net for its four-year and accelerated three-year options.
