Program description - September 2024
Human Resources Management (HRM) continues to evolve as it responds to complex business environments. In an increasingly multifaceted working environment, the role of the Human Resources (HR) practitioner is highly valued as it is critical in helping to guide the organization in achieving its strategic objectives. Successful organizations employ competent human resources professionals to manage their most valuable assets - their people. Courses in this program are based on the Human Resource Professionals Association (HRPA) competency framework. The program includes the core courses required by the HRPA, providing graduates with the knowledge to prepare them for the Professional Exams. The program is geared towards those interested in working as HR practitioners to support their organization's strategic goals. This 3-year Bachelor of Human Resource Management degree will be of interest to anyone seeking in-depth and practical knowledge of the employee career cycle within an organization, from the time an employee joins an organization (onboarding) to when they leave (separation). In this program, you will develop skills in remote collaboration, independent time management, agility and flexibility, and emotional intelligence, thus enabling the HR practitioner to support the organization with HR trends and best practices. Theory-based learning coupled with practical hands-on experience, such as experiential opportunities, case-based learning, and capstone projects (with real world industry clients), is embedded throughout the curriculum. This program will include two paid co-op terms. This degree has individual and group work that follows the guidelines of the HRPA. This gives students a combination of technical business skills and human (soft) skills, allowing them to be effective HR professionals in today's complex and evolving business world. Graduates will apply HRIS software, SAP tools, and cutting-edge technology to support their organizations. The program will be administered from the newly renovated, state-of-the-art School of Business and offer a variety of delivery modalities (i.e., in-person, hybrid, remote).
