About Us

Mission Statement

The MHR Department prepares students to obtain a baccalaureate degree (MHR major) with career emphases in human resources, entrepreneurship and small business, general management, or nonprofit management, through engaging them to become effective managers, leaders and entrepreneurs, helping them develop their personal leadership style and making them more self-aware, and strengthening their performance-management skills of teamwork, communicating, questioning and community-building. Its full-time and adjunct faculty members are committed to emulating the teacher-scholar model and learn-by-doing philosophy of Cal Poly Pomona and enriching their classes with their professional experience and research insights.

Vision Statement

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.
