DeSales MBA Adds New Concentration

15 Jul 2011 by Tina Hicks, No Comments »

It’s official!  DeSales University has added a new concentration to its MBA program. Due to increased requests, a team of MBA faculty and staff developed and proposed a new Human Resource Management concentration for the MBA program.  We are now quite pleased to announce the approval of the Human Resource (HR) Management concentration.  

“As the US and local economies emerge from the current extended slump, we believe that the demand for HR professionals will increase significantly,” says Dr. David Gilfoil, director of the MBA program. “DeSales is now poised to offer a degree that will address that demand in a meaningful way.”  

Why add HR Management to DeSales’ MBA offerings?  “The HR Management concentration will provide our students with a solid background in accounting, finance, marketing, strategy, and other core MBA areas,” says Gilfoil. “At the same time, it will provide focused training and critical thinking skills required of HR specialists who deal with human capital issues, challenges, and opportunities on a daily basis.”

The addition of HR Management to the MBA program expands the available concentration areas to nine.  Other concentrations include:  Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Finance, Healthcare Systems Management, Management, Marketing, Project Management, and Self-Design.  Each of the concentration areas consists of seven required MBA core courses, four concentration/elective courses, and one capstone integrating course.
