Management Degree Online

Waldorf’s Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Arts combines core studies in the liberal arts with the opportunity for students to select specific areas of concentration. This provides a broad base of knowledge in several subject areas, along with the option to more deeply explore a specific area of interest.

Human Resource Management Concentration
Waldorf’s Human Resource Management concentration is built upon the key competencies identified by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The concentration includes a foundational course in human resource management, as well as the flexibility for students to choose four additional courses, each reflecting a key competency identified by SHRM. Waldorf’s Human Resource Management concentration is designed for current or aspiring professionals with a specific interest in the management of people and talent.

Option to Continue Towards a Bachelor’s Degree
For students who may wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the future, the associate degree program is designed to prepare for entry into Waldorf’s bachelor’s degree programs with upper division standing. The A.A. concentration in Human Resource Management also satisfies the requirements for the Human Resource Management concentration within Waldorf’s B.S. program in Business Administration.

Estimated time to complete the Associate in Arts program is two years with full-time enrollment.
