Program description

Business Administration (Human Resources Management)

By drawing on the principles of multiple disciplines, including business, psychology and sociology, you will learn to identify and analyze people-related problems, and develop solutions that strengthen organizations. Students who successfully complete the major and maintain at least two consecutive years of student membership in the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of BC & Yukon have the option of being exempt from writing the National Knowledge Exam component of obtaining their CPHR designation.

The Human Resources Management major is multidisciplinary and exposes students to a variety of viewpoints and theoretical perspectives. Classes are highly interactive and emphasize teamwork, experiential exercises, and application of concepts to real-world problems.
