College Choice’s ranking of the Best Master’s in Human Resource Degrees is designed to provide potential students a breakdown of the top schools at the nexus of quality education and return on investment. According to the College Choice website, this ranking is based on several key metrics including academic reputation (30%), tuition (25%), financial aid offerings (25%), and early career salaries for graduates (20%). The data was collected from Payscale, U.S. News & World Reports, and the National Center for Education Statistics.

"This is a strong program," says Becky Nielson, Director of Graduate Business Services in the College of Business, "that prepares you for a successful career in the HR field. It also prepares you to take the SHRM-CP and PHR exams. This degree will help you quantify requests you make of the C-Suite and how you help the bottom line.
