Hi everyone! Just looking for some insight. I’m about 4 years into HR, have my bachelors. I’ve been toying around with the idea of getting my masters in something relating to compliance/labor law and that side of HR. Shrm certification is also on my list. If anyone has some advice on what to get a masters in specifically, I’d be open to suggestions! I’m trying to find something that would be worth my while and would give me a step up. Thanks!

If you want a masters in HR leadership, I know the Purdue Online program is highly touted. SEO always drags it to the top but there's a reason: program provides the best intel.

Getting your certification or master's will accelerate your growth in your industry. I will check with your company to see if they have any tuition reimbursement that you can take advantage of it.

We definitely have tuition reimbursement, that’s part of why I want to take advantage of it while I’m here! Thanks!

I would go for something data-related personally, like analytics or data science, that could be cool since it elevates your current skillset. I think leadership/entrepreneurship would be a cool one too but not sure if your org would be cool with that?

This is something I’ve been thinking about actually as well. I’m kind of on the fence. I love compliance/legal HR but I’m already doing a lot of systems duties and enjoy that too. Plus I know HRIS is a good place to be money wise right now

Hi, OP! I'd say pursue something based on what career path you want to take. When are planning to take?

I am in HR function myself, I would suggest if you like compliance/ legal. Then get into core legal/ corporate law course. With generative AI disrupting HR, I don’t see a long runway!
