Human Resources Management

New major. Regulations effective July 1, 2020.

The human resources (HR) function has evolved from a mainly administrative role to a far more strategic one that contributes to an organization’s business planning and long-term strategy. A management career in human resources demands integrity, confidentiality, and excellent interpersonal skills, but also requires knowledge of accounting, finance, and strategic management.

Your Bachelor of Commerce degree will give you the broad-based business knowledge you need to become not only a successful HR professional, but a respected management professional who knows how to contribute to departmental and organizational goals.


Information effective July 1, 2020 to Aug. 31, 2020.
