Human Resource Management

People are the greatest asset of any business or organization. Human resource professionals focus on understanding what motivates people and how to work with them to help the business succeed.

If you are interested in a career where you empower people to achieve greater things together, then the human resource management major at the Paul J. Hill School of Business in Saskatchewan is the place to start.

Human resource professionals delve into the fields of management and psychology to learn about what drives human behaviour to better recruit, select, train, and motivate employees and improve an organization’s performance.

As a human resource management major at the Hill School, you will learn about group dynamics, leadership, organizational culture, negotiations and how to align HR functions with business strategy to achieve organizational objectives.

Your human resource management program includes foundational courses that will develop your understanding of how people and groups function within organizational settings.

Why Study at the Hill School of Business?

At the Hill School of Business there is a lot more to the university experience than just what you learn inside the classroom.

Our programs are designed to prepare you for a successful and progressive career in business as a responsible leader who creates positive social change.

Our experiential learning approach:

  • Builds connections between business and community,
  • Teaches you to think critically,
  • Creates networking opportunities,
  • Improves your leadership abilities, and
  • Helps you exceed your potential.
If I were to travel back in time to September 2016 to my first Business class, I truly don’t think I would recognize myself. My four years at the Paul J. Hill School of Business drastically changed me for the better. I entered the program as a hesitant, shy student in my first year, and became one of the most heavily involved student leaders in my final year.
