Keys to Success

Students entering the BBA with a Concentration in Human Resources program must have strong communication skills, a love of working with people, and an interest in fostering an environment of ethical, professional, and legal responsibility.  Your curriculum will encompass a number of interdisciplinary subjects, so the ability to manage your time and course load will also be important.

South College is committed to offering you the support you need to reach your long-term professional and academic goals. Our faculty members are experts in their fields, with experience and insight to offer. Small class sizes allow South College instructors to get to know their students so that they can help you build on your academic strengths and overcome weaknesses. We offer online and campus-based courses, including classes scheduled both at night and during the day to accommodate students’ varying needs.

Success at South College

Shawn Domm

I chose South College because it came highly recommended from mentors of mine, the faculty is second to none, and the program fits my ever-changing lifestyle. I also chose it because of the flexibility. My wife is still serving in the United States Air Force on Active Duty, and this means that we move when they tell us to move.

One of the major reasons I chose South College was for the smaller class sizes. It allows more one-on-one time between students and professors, which enhances the learning experience for me.

Adam Hatcher

I went to college originally straight out of high school with the intent of majoring in musical performance with a concentration in theoretical studies. I was not prepared to for college at that point, so I decided to gain some experience and maturity by joining the work force full-time. After working for 10 years, I felt it was time to try school again.
