In 1945, Cornell University created the world's first school for college-level education in workplace studies (the ILR School), and in 1950 it offered its first professional masters degree program: Master of Industrial and Labor Relations (MILR). The University of Minnesota began offering its Master of Arts in Industrial Relations degree in 1953. The name of this degree was changed to "Human Resources and Industrial Relations" in 1998. Cornell and Minnesota also offer undergraduate HR programs.
