Human Resources and Organizational Dynamics

Human Resource and Organizational Dynamics scholars ask questions such as: What is included in a collective bargaining agreement? How is employee performance tracked? Which organizational development initiatives help retain managers?

Human Resources and Organizational Dynamics scholars specialize in studying how people operate within organizations. Over the course of your studies you will learn how to respond to the needs of a diverse work force, develop flexible organizational structures, facilitate improved relationships with unions and reduce workplace conflict. You will complete formal presentations, group projects and various case studies during the course of your degree.

As a graduate of the Human Resources and Organizational Dynamics program, you will be prepared for global career opportunities in the areas of management, human resources, operations, and more. A degree in commerce can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.
