Our Program

Humber’s Human Resources Management degree program focuses on applied professional human resources (HR) practices and solutions. Your first two years will concentrate on fundamental business concepts such as marketing, accounting, economics and law. In years three and four, you will specialize in HR, gaining practical skills through applied projects such as developing a business plan for the startup of a new HR department. You will have the opportunity to develop processes from the idea stage through to execution and you will learn from experienced professors and a network of industry professionals.

Humber’s Human Resources Management degree program is closely connected with the HR industry. You will have the opportunity to meet with a panel of the program’s advisory committee members to discuss career opportunities and to attend a series of workshops on human resources-related topics.

How to Apply

Your Career

Competition for top talent is intense, so companies are putting significant effort into attracting and retaining talent. This means that demand continues to grow for qualified HR professionals across industries and sectors. Human resources departments in organizations of all sizes and in all sectors need trained professionals who understand business and have the ability to help recruit, train, compensate and retain employees. With our degree, you’ll have the chance to pursue career opportunities in sectors as diverse as government, non-profit, manufacturing, hospitality, health care, financial services, education and more. You’ll be prepared for roles such as HR training co-ordinator, recruiter, compensation analyst, health and safety specialist, labour relations representative, benefits administrator and HR generalist.

A day as an HR professional could involve managing employee benefits and compensation, attending job fairs looking for new talent, helping resolve interpersonal conflict or advising in the hiring process. You could be called into meetings to share your knowledge of employment law, labour relations, health and safety, or compensation, as you help influence important business decisions.

Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

The Human Resources Management degree meets the most current standards and academic requirements set by the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) to write the Comprehensive Knowledge Exam (CKE). This exam is the cornerstone for obtaining your CHRP (Certified Human Resources Professional) designation through the HRPA. The HRPA charges a fee to write the exam for its CHRP designation.
