Why study Human Resource Management?

You spot raw talent, build great teams and bring out the best in people — a perfect skill set for human resource managers. Organizations rely on you to make diamonds shine, identify skill gaps and keep staff well-trained, happy and productive. You’ll need well-honed communication skills, an understanding of job markets, and a readiness to lead change. That’s where we come in. During your degree, you learn real-world approaches to:

  • Analyzing and forecasting employee issues and job trends
  • Negotiations and interviewing techniques
  • Balancing corporate objectives with employee needs
  • Encouraging social responsibility, diversity and integrity
  • Workplace sensitivity and discretion
  • Training and development programming

Our graduates can fulfil the education requirements for the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) certification and become recruiters, negotiators and trainers, and occupy managerial positions in labour-related fields.

Co-op program

The Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks. Work terms make it possible for you to:

  • Add almost a full year of hands-on experience to your resumé
  • Get a clear idea of what HR work you enjoy doing and where you want to practise it
  • Apply the material you’ve learned in class to real-world situations
  • Build an ever-expanding network of colleagues and potential employers
  • Be hired by a Co-op employer on a full-time basis after graduation


United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
