Management Human Resources

Online BS / MBA Degree from an Accredited Leader in Adult Education


Human resources managers know better than anyone that good credentials will have a big impact on a candidate's resume.

Now there's a fast, affordable way to build your credentials for an HR management career: Get a Bachelor of Science in Business (Management of Human Resources) / MBA Dual Degree Track from Excelsior College.

Our online BS / MBA degree instantly puts you in the running for better HR management jobs and higher salaries. And Excelsior caters to working adults, the military community, and other nontraditional students. Our program fits in comfortably alongside your work and family routines.

A Shorter, More Flexible Path to a BS / MBA Degree

Excelsior reduces the distance to a BS / MBA degree by building on the knowledge you already have. In addition to transferring in credits from your previous colleges, you may be able to count military training or professional experience toward your BS / MBA degree.

That means you may have fewer human resource management classes to take—and you'll have greater control over when you take them. Under Excelsior's online model, you'll complete coursework on your own schedule, not ours. And you'll do it at the lowest possible cost.
