The importance and complexity of managing human resources has grown over the years, as have the opportunities for employment in this exciting area of management. Recognizing these changes, LSU Digital & Continuing Education developed a series of professional development programs to assist individuals and organizations in improving the value they contribute to their business success from a Human Resource Management (HRM) perspective.

The program is designed for human resource professionals and support staff, and for line managers who find their job duties involving more human resource-related activities. The HRM Certificate Program involves a total of five courses. Four separate courses covering a range of HRM-related topics as well as an elective. These topics include the personal skills to manage individual employees and the general HRM knowledge to manage the HRM function in the business.

Professional development courses are open to all participants, not just those pursuing a certificate program. These courses are non-credit and non-degree programs.
