Storied MSIR program celebrates 60th anniversary at WVU

You may not know it, but West Virginia University is home to one of the most storied and historically significant programs of its kind in the nation.

The Master of Science in Industrial Relations and Human Resources  program, commonly known as MSIR and housed in the WVU College of Business and Economics, was the focus of a 60th anniversary celebration over the weekend in WVU’s business school. For the program that became fully operational in 1958 — only seven years after WVU created the College of Commerce that would become B&E — program alumni and students came together to celebrate MSIR’s history, success and evolution.
