The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has announced that the University of Wisconsin-Platteville School of Business has aligned its Human Resource Management undergraduate program with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates through 2025 and recognized UW-Platteville as a SHRM recertification provider.
SHRM Academic Alignment Program participants are recognized as SHRM academic partners and are seen as a top choice for students seeking a career in human resources. Students enrolled in a SHRM HR-aligned program are provided with the opportunity to earn their SHRM-CP credential before graduating, providing them with a competitive advantage in the job market.
The alignment was spearheaded by Dr. Sameer Ahmed, assistant professor of human resource management at UW-Platteville.
“I am very appreciative of Dr. Ahmed to ensure this valuable opportunity for our students,” said Dr. Les Hollingsworth, director of UW-Platteville’s School of Business. “Ahmed’s leadership and this designation are another testament to UW-Platteville’s commitment to preparing the highest quality HR professionals.”
The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM in 2006 to define the minimum human resources content areas that should be studied by human resources students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. It has been revalidated in 2010, 2013 and 2017 as part of SHRM’s academic initiative to specify human resources education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.
SHRM was established in 1948 and totals more than 300,000 human resources and business executive members in 165 countries. It is the premier association for human resources professionals throughout the world and is the expert and thought leader on issues impacting workplaces with a focus on respecting and maximizing human potential. Throughout the world, more than 500 programs in approximately 425 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates.
