Human Resources Management

Have you always been a “people person”? Do you have a knack for organizing responsibility in group settings and recognizing the potential and the strengths that different people bring to the table? Pursuing a Human Resources Management program can put you on the path to nurture these abilities and develop your career. In addition, third-year York students in the Honours Bachelor of Human Resource Management (BHRM) program may be eligible to participate in a paid internship--the Human Resource Management Internship Program (HRMIP)--for up to sixteen months.
