Overview

Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce – Human Resources Management degree program focuses on applied professional human resources (HR) practices and solutions. Our program starts with a foundation of business studies in areas such as organizational behaviour, law, economics, finance and accounting, marketing, and operations management. Specialization courses will focus on HR, giving you 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.

Our 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 workshops and events on human resources-related topics.

Work Placement

The Humber Bachelor of Commerce – Human Resources Management program requires that you complete 14 weeks/420 hours of paid work in the summer between your sixth and seventh semesters. This gives you the hands-on, real-world experience that employers value. Your placement will give you the opportunity to explore the field you’d like to work in when you graduate. We will work with employers and our industry partners to help you identify opportunities to pursue.

Career opportunities

Competition for top talent is intense, so companies are putting significant effort into attracting and retaining talent. Demand for qualified HR professionals across industries and sectors continues to grow. Human resources departments in organizations of all sizes and all sectors need trained professionals who understand business and can 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, healthcare, financial services, education and more. You’ll be prepared for roles such as HR training coordinator, 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 on to share your knowledge of employment law, labour relations, health and safety, or compensation as you help influence important business decisions.
