Utah State University Collaborates with Academic Partnerships to Offer a New Master of Science in Human Resources (MSHR) Program Online
DALLAS, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Utah State University has selected Academic Partnerships to launch The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business Master of Science in Human Resources (MSHR) degree program online.
Academic Partnerships, which offers comprehensive support to universities in the development and marketing of their online courses and degree programs, will boost enrollment of qualified students and expand the reach of Utah State's faculty instruction. The partnership will enable students located in more rural areas to advance their careers in human resources through a flexible, fully online master's degree. The program is expected to launch in January 2013.
"Utah State University has offered distance education for more than 25 years," said Douglas D. Anderson, dean of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. "By first utilizing a broadcast network and now through online platforms, USU is meeting the needs of Utah's students who are unable to attend an on-campus program. With the rapid advances in online instruction, we are now able to extend our reach even further to offer our MSHR degree to more students throughout Utah and beyond."
Anderson said the school selected Academic Partnerships because of its track record, commenting that "Academic Partnerships has worked with leading public universities to significantly drive student enrollments and most importantly, to ensure that enrolled students remain engaged and successfully graduate from these online degree programs. Academic Partnerships' online education expertise combined with USU's leading human resource curriculum, means we'll be able to give exponentially more students an innovative learning experience."
