An International Perspective Meets Hands-on HR Learning
In a world where mobilizing talent is a key competitive advantage, National University’s Master of Global Human Resources (MGHR) program equips you for strategic HR management on a global scale. Instruction and curriculum will focus on vital activities, such as staffing models, global talent acquisition, total rewards, global employee relations, cross-cultural communication, and organizational development. This comprehensive approach ensures students are well-versed in both the theoretical and practical aspects of HR, enabling them to thrive in diverse, international settings.
The 30-hour program is designed for those with prior HR experience and for students looking to enter the field. It takes a cutting-edge perspective on today’s global business challenges while aligning with standards and guidelines set by industry leading bodies, such as the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI). Through hands-on projects, real-world scenarios, and interactive learning modules, you’ll not only master HR theory but learn how to apply these principles in a global context. This practical, experiential approach fosters the ability to support and lead HR functions in diverse settings, making graduates highly valuable to a variety of business, nonprofit, and government employers.

The University cannot guarantee that any professional organization or business will accept a graduate’s application to sit for any certification, licensure, or related exam for the purpose of professional certification.
Program availability varies by state. Many disciplines, professions, and jobs require disclosure of an individual’s criminal history, and a variety of states require background checks to apply to, or be eligible for, certain certificates, registrations, and licenses. Existence of a criminal history may also subject an individual to denial of an initial application for a certificate, registration, or license and/or result in the revocation or suspension of an existing certificate, registration, or license. Requirements can vary by state, occupation, and/or licensing authority.
NU graduates will be subject to additional requirements on a program, certification/licensure, employment, and state-by-state basis that can include one or more of the following items: internships, practicum experience, additional coursework, exams, tests, drug testing, earning an additional degree, and/or other training/education requirements.
All prospective students are advised to review employment, certification, and/or licensure requirements in their state, and to contact the certification/licensing body of the state and/or country where they intend to obtain certification/licensure to verify that these courses/programs qualify in that state/country, prior to enrolling. Prospective students are also advised to regularly review the state’s/country’s policies and procedures relating to certification/licensure, as those policies are subject to change.
National University degrees do not guarantee employment or salary of any kind. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to review desired job positions to review degrees, education, and/or training required to apply for desired positions. Prospective students should monitor these positions as requirements, salary, and other relevant factors can change over time.
*Positions may require additional experience, training, and other factors beyond successfully completing this degree program. Depending on where you reside, many positions may also require state licensure, and it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all licensure requirements are met.
