2014 GraduateBS in Business Administration, specializing in Human Resource Management, dual minors in Public Relations & Entrepreneurship

Specializing in Daemen College's Human Resource Management program was the best decision I could have made for my career. Coming to college, I knew I wanted to major in Business Administration, but I wasn't sure what specialization to choose. After attending one SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) club meeting my freshman year, I knew the field of Human Resources was what I was searching for. HR is centered on being socially interactive with current or future employees, all while having a basis in employment laws and regulations. The field opportunities are truly limitless!

HR Management is an exceptionally versatile degree. I originally thought I wanted to follow in the recruiting & training track - but ended up getting an amazing job as an HR Assistant in the HR/Payroll Office at Daemen before I even graduated! All of the professors, coursework, and internship opportunities helped me succeed. Each professor cares about your understanding of the subject, and how to apply it to real world situations. You are not just a number - you are appreciated and respected as a student.
