During your first year at the School of Business Management, you'll acquire the foundational business knowledge that prepares you to specialize in a major.

Undergraduate major overview

Acquire the knowledge, critical thinking, and practical skills that will enable you to create organizational effectiveness, lead human resources management strategies, and enhance the human condition at work.

Human Resources Management (HRM) Majors learn to think critically about the challenges involved in creating high performance workplaces where innovation, diversity, and ethical behaviour are valued and rewarded. HRM Majors are educated in Human Resources Management (HRM), Organizational Behaviour (OB) and Industrial Relations (IR) and can select courses that qualify them for the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation and a career in HRM. Students learn about all the major functions of HRM such as recruitment and compensation, and develop OB knowledge and skills in areas such as leadership, interpersonal communication, conflict management, and team building. Experiential learning is stressed in upper level courses through the use of simulated clients, role playing and on-line simulations.

Business management students must complete a total of 40 credits which include Required, Required Group or Professional elective, Professionally-Related and Liberal Studies courses. The curriculum provides you with a general overview of business in society, introduces you to all of the basic business functions, and develops awareness of social, human and economic issues through the introduction of the liberal studies.

The part-time program is offered to accommodate students who intend to take the degree at a slower pace than the full-time day program, due to the demands of daytime employment and/or family obligations. Part-time students fulfil their course requirements primarily in the evenings by enrolling in courses through the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education for the first six semesters, and through The Ted Rogers School of Business Management evening course offerings for semesters seven and eight. Part-time students are entitled to enroll in a maximum of three courses per semester.
