A diverse, complex and global job market – these factors translate into an increasing need for organizations to differentiate themselves through their people practices. Welcome to the world of Human Resources Management, where the pressure to find and retain talented employees requires skilled professionals who can implement forward-thinking practices in the areas of employee compensation, staffing, training and development, and employee relations.

MacEwan’s Human Resources Management program prepares you for a career in HR with a comprehensive, no-nonsense program of study. A balance of practical skills and strategic thinking, the program delivers both general management skills and the very latest in HR-specific training. Subjects include organizational behaviour, labour relations, recruitment and selection, employment law, workplace health and safety training, compensation, and change management.

The program also offers a certificate exit option after completion of the first year of study, and students who complete the full diploma, can transfer directly to the third year of MacEwan's Bachelor of Commerce degree - so you can graduate with both a specialized diploma AND a degree.
