|Description:||The success of any company or organization rests on the commitment and imagination of the people who are its members. Effective human resources management enables an organization to build success through people. By attracting qualified employees, developing their talents through training, fairly compensating them for their efforts and protecting their health and safety, we create organizations that are productive, innovative, and satisfying to employees. We provide our students with the knowledge and skills to effectively manage the people in an organization. Human resources management is a professional field that is growing rapidly in Canada and there are many career opportunities within this exciting field. The minimum requirement for completion of a Bachelor of Commerce with a major in Human Resources Management is 120 credit hours.
