Blend Your HR degree Program with World-Class Professional Certifications
HRCI’s Academic Program is flexible and offers several options to integrate into your current curriculum.
The HRCI® Academic Program provides organizations the opportunity to offer every graduating student two valuable credentials. Earn a college degree, as well as an HRCI certification with the benefit of continuing education credits.
As students learn about labor relations, talent planning, data analytics and business management, they can also put those competencies into practice and earn an HRCI certification.
Most importantly, professors can structure their classroom lessons around different HRCI exam functional areas to supplement topics included in the University Program.
Combining an HR degree with HRCI’s credential requirements, universities offer students the opportunity to learn additional HR core competencies, while earning one of HRCI’s eight world-class certifications.
Many organizations recruit and hire HR professionals with an HRCI certification. Offer your graduates both an Academic Diploma and an HRCI certification that will solidify their competitive advantage as they enter the job market.Download HRCI Glossary
