Moravian Graduate

Program Overview


Elevate Your Career. Organization. Life. In a dynamic and competitive business environment, maximizing the value of your organization’s human capital is the most efficient way to gain competitive advantage. What better way to alter your organization’s strength, relative to its competitors, than to manage your human capital better than they manage theirs.

The Moravian College MSHRM program is designed to:

  • Establish your position as a strategic partner through enhanced business acumen.
  • Develop your cultural and change management skills.
  • Improve the effectiveness of your core function management through the use of HR technology.


If strategic HR management were easy, everyone would be doing it. That is precisely why doing it right offers such great advantage. Strategy inevitably involves risk. Risk without knowledge and understanding is a hit-or-miss affair. The Moravian College MSHRM program delivers knowledge, develops your skills, and reinforces your ability to be a contributing strategic business partner within your organization.

Students in the MSHRM program are competent in basic skills and knowledge of business – economics, accounting, financial management, statistics, and human resource management. Previous course work, or professional certifications, can demonstrate your knowledge of these areas. If you don’t have previous course work in some or all of these areas, you may meet the competency requirement by taking the courses you need from those listed below. These courses may be waived based on previous educational and professional experience. A student must have a GPA equivalent to 2.8 or higher in the business competencies to graduate. The business competencies required are:

  • Financial Accounting

  • Financial Management for Business
  • Managing Human Resources
  • Statistics


Students enrolled in the Moravian College MSHRM degree program complete a core set of nine (9) courses and a concentration area of three (3) courses. The MSHRM core focuses on leadership and HR skills and knowledge needed for a successful career in HR, including staffing, compensation, law, and HRIS.
