Do you need a degree to be a human resources manager?

Generally, yes. It can be possible to work in the human resources field without a degree; however, to advance in your HR career employers may require a bachelor’s degree. A bachelor’s degree can help prepare you for higher level HR roles, such as manager or supervisor.

To become a director, vice president, or chief HR officer, it can be beneficial to have an MBA with an HR concentration, in addition to several years of experience.
