Human Resources Management Major
Human resources professionals provide advice to all levels of the organization on employee recruitment and retention programs, selection of job candidates, employee professional development, negotiations, and more. Human resources professionals, particularly working with large organizations, are able to specialize in an area of interest like compensation, training, and labour relations.
MacEwan University has developed the curriculum for this major in line with the CPHR Competency Framework as established by CPHR Canada. Completion of this major prepares students for the National Knowledge Exam (NKE), a primary requirement of the Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation, which also requires the completion of a baccalaureate degree.
MacEwan University has made another move to prepare their Human Resources Management graduates for success in their careers. MacEwan University’s Human Resources Management program is now accredited with the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of Alberta (CPHR). Visit the CPHR Alberta Designation page (https://www.cphrab.ca/cphr-designation) which outlines the process required to achieve the designation, and includes information on how to apply to waive the NKE.
