Human Resources

The Human Resources discipline is designed to prepare you for careers in Human Resources, Labour-Management Relations, Training & Development, and Personnel Selection. A key concept you will learn within this discipline is the various theories and practices of managing people, including international management, diversity in the workplace, and organizational behaviour.

Students interested in Human Resources can specialize in the area or enrol in individual courses.

Students who achieve a specialization in Human Resources from Odette will have fulfilled the coursework requirements to gain their Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation. Please contact Odette Student Success Centre to learn more about this professional designation.
