2013 HR Leadership Academy

Please note, this year's HR Leadership Academy has been cancelled. If you have any questions, please email info@shrmatlanta.org. Please check back for updates about possible future classes. 

If you are an HR practitioner with SPHR or PHR certification, or equivalent work experience, University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business and SHRM-Atlanta invite you to take advantage of this incredible opportunity to hone your business skills and take your career—and your company—to the next level. 

The only course of its kind in the area, the HR Leadership Academy (HRLA) is an exclusive (limited to 40 participants) six-day intensive program designed to hone the HR professional’s non-HR business skills, and is akin to an executive MBA for the HR practitioner.* 

If your goal is to grow beyond your current role and become a strategic business executive, you won’t find anything else comparable. This program delivers the high-quality executive education UGA’s Terry College of Business is renowned for—and is backed by the name Atlanta’s HR professionals trust more than any other: SHRM-Atlanta.

Graduates will receive a Certificate in Business from UGA Terry College of Business, a certificate from SHRM-Atlanta, and a significant number of strategic credits for recertification. 

* This program assumes participants are already knowledgeable and competent in human resources.
