Human Resource Development

As a Human Resource Development graduate, you will be prepared to train and develop employees, improve employee engagement and performance, diagnose organizational needs, and assess system effectiveness. Essentially, you will help organizations develop all job-related aspects for their employees.

When management identifies new opportunities, they will look to your expertise and guidance in developing organizational talent and addressing workplace challenges.

Further develop your management skills with an integrated minor in human resource management from Purdue’s Krannert School of Management.

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute is one of 10 academic colleges at Purdue University. The Polytechnic specializes in team-based labs where you’ll test ideas, take things apart and put them back together — only better. You’ll learn side-by-side with professors who have worked in the industry and thrive on combining theory, imagination and real-world application. In this innovative environment, you'll learn by doing - gaining deep technical knowledge and applied skills in your chosen discipline coupled with problem-solving, critical-thinking, communication and leadership skills employers’ desire.
