Featured HR Course | MS in Management


The Business School invites the region’s HR professionals to sign up for a new class offered by Professor Wayne Cascio, a globally recognized expert in human capital at the University of Colorado Denver Business School.

In HR Analytics: Investing in People, Professor Cascio will examine the links between talent and strategy in organizations.  His class will emphasize a systematic, logical approach to managing human capital that challenges traditional views and synthesizes a variety of business disciplines.  Professor Cascio will make connections between progressive HR practices and firm performance, and demonstrate the financial impact of these connections.  Cascio’s latest book, Investing in People: Financial Impact of Human Resource Initiatives (2nd ed.), published by Pearson/Financial Times Press, is a featured text for his new class at the Business School in downtown Denver.

Who should take this course?

The course is suitable for graduate students and HR professionals who wish to develop an evidence-based approach to managing talent. This is not a statistics course, but participants should have an understanding of the basic concepts of hypothesis testing, correlation and regression analysis. We accept students with a minimum 3.0 GPA (unofficial transcript accepted) and three or more years of work experience.
