It enables you to pursue lifelong learning while maintaining daytime employment or other activities, by attending evening or weekend classes or studying as an online learner.
This program is a logical next step for students interested in a HR oriented career who have completed an Advanced Human Resource Management certificate.

The Human Resource Management diploma program may also be taken in the full-time format over two years.
This is a general human resource part-time studies program with no predetermined specialization. It includes the academic content of Levels 1 and 2 (first year) of the full-time two-year Human Resource Management diploma program plus a broad list of HR related elective courses that allow you to tailor your studies to meet your individual educational needs and career goals.
Human Resource Management students undertake a 10 week Business Consulting Project in their final term. Students work in groups of 2-3 and spend two days a week developing a solution to a real human resource problem for a company. The student teams collect and analyze data, create recommendations, and present their findings to senior management.
