Penn State Launches Certificate in International Human Relations

Pennsylvania State University is launching a new online graduate certificate program designed to help HR professionals understand the laws, policies and best practices related to companies with international employees.

Designed for HR professionals inside and outside the United States and graduates of Penn State's master's program in human resources and employment relations, the 12-credit program in international human resources and employment relations (IHRER) is offered by the university's School of Labor and Employment Relations (LER) via the World Campus.

"There is a huge need for people to understand international HRER," said Antone Aboud, professor of practice in LER and team leader for the online program. "We know from talking to our alumni and our students and from the research of our faculty that there's a huge amount of activity at the international level."
