Human Resources Compliance Certificate Program


In February MHSL is launching a 12-week Human Resources Compliance Certificate Program for human resources generalists and compliance specialists. This program offers professionals the opportunity to learn and use a model of compliance designed to meet organizational goals while addressing the professional's duty of care; ethical, legal, and business decision-making frameworks; and responsibilities as a driver of change in an organization.


Participants will gain an all-encompassing HR view of how to approach risk management and compliance within businesses of all sizes and receive a broad perspective through the employment life cycle to enable them to apply compliance to their work.  Our online learning management system is a flexible, interactive portal that offers online discussions, practical exercises, and collaborative activities that can be completed when they fit into participants' schedules.

 

More information about course curriculum, faculty, and tuition can be found here: http://mitchellhamline.edu/hr-compliance/.
