After making the difficult decision to return back to school to further my education in 2002, I was please to discover the newly created MHRM program at the University of Hawaii and was honored to be a member of the first graduating cohort class. The MHRM program gave me the extensive human resources knowledge to be successful as an HR professional in the staffing industry. The accelerated timeframe of the program with evening and weekend class schedules accommodates my work priorities perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for a better Master’s program!

Why would a self-employed optometrist go back to school to get a Master’s in Human Resource Management? For me, it was a professional necessity. Understanding the diverse aspects of human resources is critical to running any successful business. The MHRM program helped me to create my first employee handbook. It gave me greater confidence handling human resource issues and the knowledge gives me greater peace of mind to run my business. I recommend this program to all business owners, no matter how small.
