The Human Resources Management Certificate Program culminates in a Capstone project that gives participants the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of certificate program objectives. The Capstone project will require students to design an HR strategy covering all the major disciplines within HR. Using actual workplace situations, learn to handle the same problems HR professionals encounter every day. Find out how state and federal laws, as well as organizational policies, politics and practices can affect your decision process. Learn practical, real-world skills that you can apply to your own workplace.

The Capstone course consists of three in-class sessions and an estimated 32 hours of student work to be completed outside of class. 

  • In the first class session (2 hours), the instructor explains the project plan, presentation and evaluation criteria. At the end of the session, each student selects a company for their project and makes an appointment with the instructor for the second in-class session (see below).  
  • In between the first and second session each student will study the company information, identify priorities and draft goals, strategies and tactics for his or her project. The instructor will be available via e-mail to answer questions related to the project or to help a student “get unstuck” (up to a maximum of three emails).  
  • In the second session (max 3 hours), each student will have a scheduled 30-minute oneonone meeting with the instructor to review progress, discuss possibilities, and get feedback.  
  • Between the second and third session, each student will complete his or her piece of the project plan and presentation. The instructor will be available via e-mail to answer questions related to the project or to help a student “get unstuck” (up to a maximum of three emails).  
  • In the final session, students will give presentations to other students and the instructor, receive feedback and submit the written project plan to the instructor. A passing grade on the project plan is 70 points. If the student does not pass, the student has 15 days to make corrections and resubmit the project plan. If requirements are still not met, participants must repay the full course fee to repeat the course and receive a Human Resources Management Certificate.
