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.
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.
