The MHR Department faculty at Cal Poly Pomona prepares students to become effective managers, leaders and entrepreneurs by employing the “learn by doing” philosophy and the “teacher-scholar” model. Through discipline-based knowledge we develop our students’ skills in (tracks). Our aim is to graduate students who are productive professionals and responsible citizens.
By 2016, the MHR Department will be the best Human Resources department in the CSU system and the best among those that focus on the “soft” but vital skills of performance management—by producing highly sought-after graduates with 21st century management skills that include principled leadership, communications, teamwork, entrepreneurial thinking and complex decision making. It will have a reputation for providing students with hands-on learning, practical and professional business experience, a supportive online and in-person community, an active mentoring program, and first-rate teaching.
