Address Any Organization’s Human Capital Challenges

Human Capital Management

Human Capital Management (HCM) is undergoing a transformation. Having risen to the level of business partner in many, though not all organizations, HCM professionals are challenged to go the next step – to embrace and promote concepts such as agility, diversity and inclusiveness, analytics, technology, artificial intelligence, and, of course, deep functional expertise and cross-functional collaboration to help position themselves and their colleagues for success.

Columbia University’s Master of Science in Human Capital Management (HCM) prepares graduates to address any organization’s human capital challenges through data-driven, market-based insights and organization-wide integrated solutions. The goal of the program is to create world-class HCM strategists and human resource leaders who can advance their careers while driving organizational excellence in the new world of work.
