美国大学有人力资源管理硕士的学校还是少之又少的，前100的学校里不超过15所。而且所在学校里所属的院系不完全一样，有的属于劳动关系学院(School of Labor and Employment Relation )例如伊利诺伊大学香槟分校，主要是侧重培养学生在各领域的人力资源专业技能，学生毕业后进公司、组织或政府机构都可以，有的属于商学院(School of Business)例如俄亥俄州立大学和明尼苏达大学，重点培养学生在企业的人力资源管理能力由于人力资源管理在划分时可能在不同的院校，因此申请者考GRE或者GMAT都可以。美国公认的前5名有Cornell University，University of Minnesota-Twin Cities，University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign,Michigan State University和Rutgers,the State University of New Jersey-New Brunswick。除此之外，Pennsylvania State Univeristy-Park, Ohio State University, Purdue University以及Texas A&M University也是不错的选择。

专业：Master of Human Resources and Industrial Relations （这个学院硕士只有这一个项目）
介绍： MHRIR degree will prepare you for a well-paying and exciting role in business, union and government organizations.
Earn your MHRIR by completing 12 courses (48 hours) in three semesters. 12门课，48个课时。
The largest class enrolls in the fall and graduates in December of the next year. This allows students to enter the workforce sooner than graduates in other programs, giving them a competitive edge. Spring semester enrollment is also available. 一般是9月份入学，次年的12月份毕业，也就是一年半的项目。
Although prior work experience in human resources and industrial relations is not required, we encourage you to gain some work experience before you enroll.
Students must complete an undergraduate introductory course in statistics. We strongly recommend you complete this course before you enroll at the school. You may take such a course without graduate credit during your first semester in the master’s program, but doing so may delay completion because of course sequencing.
课程设置：Course Requirements（分为两个形式，一个是non-thesis，一个是thesis option。）
MHRIR (NON-THESIS OPTION) – 48 HOURS
To receive a master’s in human resources and industrial relations (MHRIR), students must complete a 48-hour program. Many of the classes available to LER students are cross-listed with other programs.
Among the 48 hours of coursework, two courses are required:
LER 591 Employment Relations Systems
LER 593 Quantitative Methods in Labor and Employment Relations (statistics)
One course in each of the four subject areas is also required:
Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior
Labor Markets and Employment
Union Management and Labor Relations Policy
International Human Resource Management
The five remaining electives can be tailored to suit particular interests and career aspirations. Below is a sample course sequence for the MHRIR program.
In 2013-2014, LER students came from 104 undergraduate institutions (57 domestic, 47 international), 65 majors, 20 states, and 7 countries. The class was 67% female, 23% minority (including Asian), and 30% International. Thirty-seven percent of the students had a year or more of work experience and the average age at entrance was 24.
What GPA is needed for admission?
Entering students at LER have an average GPA of 3.5, but our admission process is not formula driven. We have students with a wide range of undergraduate GPAs.
How do you determine GPA?
Your last two years of undergraduate work at the time of application is used to determine your GPA. If you take more than four years to graduate, all coursework beyond the second year is used in the GPA determination.
What GMAT score is needed for admission?
Admitted students who take the GMAT receive an average composite score between a 580-650.
LER requires a student have at least a 590 PBT, 243 CBT, or 96 iBT score to be considered for admission. However, the University of Illinois has minimum standards for full admission. You must have a 613 PBT, 257 CBT or 103 iBT score to be admitted on full status. If your score is between 590-612 written, 243-256 computer or 96-102 iBT, you may be admitted on limited status. This means that you must take the English Placement Test (EPT) upon your arrival on campus. This test will determine if you need to take any English as a Second Language (ESL) classes at the University. 托福要求96，但103以上是full admission。如果在96-102之间需要做语言测试。
