Strategic human resources management professionals are able to leverage employee talent and integrate business objectives to successfully manage and implement organizational projects, programs, and initiatives. With human resources management and business knowledge, as well as the ability to communicate with leaders across the organization, strategic human resources management professionals play a role in shaping contemporary business strategies.

You develop critical-thinking skills and knowledge required to execute human resources management activities encompassing the employee life cycle - from effective recruitment and selection to employee relations strategies. There is an emphasis on teamwork, real-world simulations, and project management skills throughout the program. The program`s capstone course involves an industry-based project where you will work in collaborative teams to research, design, and create strategic human resources management initiatives for an organization.

Students also gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term(s) (see Additional Information for more details).
