What is the most important or unique thing about Sullivan's Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Leadership program?

There are three key factors that make our HRL programs stand out:

  1. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has confirmed that Sullivan’s MSHRL program fully aligns with the SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates (which define HR educational standards and help business schools develop solid degree programs that follow these standards).
  2. Our program is among the first to recognize the importance of human capital analytics as a key HR competency and we have developed a course devoted entirely to this emerging topic.
  3. Finally, the program’s capstone course prepares you to seek PHR or SPHR certification at the completion of your studies, further enhancing your skills and marketability.

What are some websites with more information on the human resource leadership career field?

The primary source of information is the Society for Human Resource Management (, the national organization for HR professionals with more than 250,000 members worldwide. Also, most cities have local chapters, which can also be a good resource.
