Human Resources Business @ a Distance course(s)


The more complex the company, the greater its need for trained human resources professionals. This major delivers both the basic skills from our management program and the more specialized skills involved in talent management, succession planning, diversity awareness and corporate culture development. This program is designed for future human resource specialists who want to further improve their management skills.

The human resources major is offered via the Business @ a Distance Consortium, a collaboration of several Ohio two-year colleges cooperating to deliver web-based business course majors to Stark State’s associate of applied business degree in business management. Member colleges deliver online specialty courses.

Students register for the business management program at Stark State and take the majority of their course requirements just as they would as a traditional student. The student applies for admission to the member college and takes the human resources courses noted on Stark State’s program advising sheet. Once the courses are completed, the student requests that a transcript be sent to Stark State. The online courses are transferred to Stark State and the student is awarded the A.A.B. degree in business management with specialization in the chosen area.
