MBA in Human Resources Management
"Pace's MBA in Financial Management and Human Resources is less theoretical and more pragmatic. As a student I gained practical skills that transferred to the workplace. What I most liked about the program was that the professors were actually working in the field—as they were teaching. They made a point of connecting the real world to their coursework, which made it more applicable to us as students."
