Labour and Industrial Relations
Description:In a global marketplace, we must compete with countries that have low labour costs by developing markets for products and services that require a highly skilled, productive workforce. How to develop leaders and entrepreneurs, how to motivate employees, and how to design organizations that are productive; yet respond to the needs of a diverse workforce are some of the questions you will address in the human resources and industrial relations major.

The Sobey School of Business offers co-operative education options to the Bachelor of Commerce program. Co-operative education is a dynamic approach to university education which integrates academic classroom studies with related practical work experiences outside the formal university environment. The principle upon which this concept is based is that learning and individual development are greatly enhanced when the concepts studied in the classroom are periodically applied, tested, and observed by the students in meaningful work situations. Through this program, participating businesses have an excellent opportunity to observe and influence the education of bright enthusiastic students. They also benefit from the access gained to university faculty and expertise, while university faculty and students become aware of the concerns of business and the varied problems which they face.
