It is one of ten programs in the country that are AACSB accredited and that measure up to SHRM guidelines defining the minimum human resource content areas that should be studied by undergraduate and graduate students of human resources.

Beginnings of MBA HRIS

Few had thought about combining the paper-heavy field of human resources with information technology in 1985 when forward-thinking professors at the University at Albany School of Business created the MBA concentration in Human Resource Information Systems. Since then, companies have realized that instead of an information technology practitioner, they need a human resource professional who knows information technology. Even in our tech-hungry age, it remains one of the few programs combining both disciplines.
