    Networking can be tough in the best of circumstances, but the MS in Human Resource Management program helps you make the connections. Take Kyle Wiley, for example – he was attending one of the MSHRM Saturday seminars where the Chief Human Resources Officer for Webster Bank was making a presentation to the cohort. When he mentioned that there were positions open, Kyle took the opportunity to introduce himself and learn more about the openings. After a few rounds of interviews, he was hired as a HR Business partner, and now after 5 years promoted to a VP position. Kyle is active in the non-profit world as well, serving as a director for the HR Assoc. of Central CT, and a VP of Finance for the Nat’l Assoc. of African Americans in HR.

    In addition to a strong international presence, we also have some homegrown students in our MSBAPM program. Denny Lopez (bottom left) grew up in Stamford and had UConn on his short list for Undergrad – proximity to NYC along with cool local events made his college experience fun and fulfilling! After earning his Economics degree, taking the next step to business analytics and project management felt right – enhancing the quantitative side of Econ and coupling it with an understanding of being able to see a project to a successful completion. Bonus, he just landed a great summer internship at Slalom’s Business Advisory services. Even though it’s located in Westchester, it’s just a short ride away. For his eventual pivot into traditional consulting work, Denny has appreciated the doors MSBAPM has opened for him. We’re excited to see what you’ve got lined up next.

    Brittany Stephenson is a student in UConn’s MS in Human Resource Management program. She is part of a group of students and alumni who have started a committee called the Black Student Union. This group formed last year when one of our community members experienced racial profiling, amidst a national environment of police violence and protest. Through honest and difficult conversations, the HRM program leadership learned that Black students wanted a space to call their own, and to establish measurable and sustainable support from the university. Over the course of this year, the Black Student Union used their voice to enact meaningful change within the HRM program. An academic course on diversity is now part of the core curriculum. Travis Grosser, the academic director of HRM, has encouraged every instructor to dedicate class time to diversity, equity, and inclusion topics. With an overarching goal of equality on a cultural level, it seems clear that within any organization, the people responsible for hiring need to be aligned with these values. HRM does the work to prepare future HR professionals not only through its curriculum, but by establishing groups like the Black Student Union, listening, AND enacting real-time personal and professional change.

    This past year has made a lot of us reconsider the role that technology plays in keeping us connected and productive. Is it possible to feel that connection and make friends in an online program? You bet! Just ask Cole Crawford, Rachel Kahen (@rachelvkn), and Julia Lindwall (@juliaalindwalll) of our MS in Accounting program. Despite being at different stages in their graduate journey, these learners were connected to form a small group in professor Amy Dunbar's "Financial Reporting and Auditing" class. Over the course of the semester, they convened weekly in video chat to problem solve and complete group assignments, even having Professor Dunbar drop in to assist when necessary. Their different perspectives have made them stronger as a group, and the friendships they've made will carry on well after graduation. This is not by accident - our MS of Accounting program has had 18 years to perfect online team building. Since 2003, MSA has been 100% online, and in those 18 years, they have developed best practices for their students to achieve in the online environment. Follow the link in our bio - come to an infosession and learn more about how MSA offers online flexibility while maintaining a sense of connectivity and inclusion. ...

    Our MS in Business Analytics and Project Management alums go on to do great things, but they also commit to helping current students along in their own journey. Take Indrajit Bhattacharya ’17 for example. Since graduating, he has moved on to work at Google, and earlier this spring, Indro connected with current MSBAPM students to co-lead a presentation about Interviewing and Negotiation. It was a valuable conversation about real-world application (gotta nail interviews to get jobs, after all!).
