HCI Human Capital Academy

Build in-demand capabilities. Advance your career.
Lead the future of HR.

Welcome to the Human Capital Academy

HCI has been researching HR effectiveness for over 15 years. Based on that research, we've developed an immersive 18-month program designed to help you build the in-demand strategic capabilities you'll need to advance your HR career and lead the future of HR. Welcome to the Human Capital Academy.

Redesigned With You in Mind

HCI’s redesigned Human Capital Academy was built with four things in mind. As an Academy enrollee, you will:

  • Build a strong foundation in business strategy, HR business partnership, and analytics. These are Core Programs for the Academy.
  • Choose options that best suit you. The redesigned Academy now includes a variety of Strategic Accelerators that you can choose from based on your unique learning needs.
  • Seek guidance outside of the classroom as you apply what you learn. Throughout the Academy you’ll work with an HR Mentor to complete real-world work that you’ll present as part of an Advised Portfolio.
  • Move at your own pace. With dozens of open enrollment programs each month, you can complete all the Academy requirements in less than 18 months.

Mentorship & Advised Portfolio

Throughout your Academy experience, you’ll meet with your HR mentor after the completion of each program to talk about how you can apply what you’ve learned in your work, including how to use the tools from the course. You’ll also discuss any challenges or obstacles you encountered as you work toward being more strategic in your role.

Using concepts and tools from your Academy programs, you will apply what you've learned to your real work and synthesize your outcomes into an Advised Portfolio. After you have taken all the Academy programs, you’ll create a 45-minute presentation for our panel that summarizes the work you have done and how it aligns to the knowledge and behaviors in the Strategic HR Capability Framework. Your HR Mentor will provide clear instructions about what to include in your presentation.

Community & Connection

As you progress through the Academy, you’ll connect with fellow learners from the individual certification programs as well as fellow Academy enrollees, enabling you enhance your peer network.

We recognize this is an important step in your career and your HCI Team will be here to support you along the way, answering important questions, assisting with course registrations, and helping you stay on track.

Once you have completed all the individual programs in your Academy and presented your Advised Portfolio to the panel, you’ll receive your Human Capital Strategy Credential. Congratulations!
