Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources

Bachelor of Commerce (BComm)

Why choose Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources?


Organizational behaviour and human resources 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?

Organizational behaviour and human resources scholars specialize in studying how people operate within organizations. Over the course of your studies you'll 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'll complete formal presentations, group projects and various case studies during your degree.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Commerce with a concentration in organizational behaviour and human resources, you'll 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.

The Haskayne School of Business provided a healthy balance of textbook and practical knowledge. Many of my favourite professors were long-time human resources professionals with many years of experience. Our classes were fun and engaging but also gave us handy tools to network and learn about career opportunities due to frequent guest lecturers. During the program, I worked part-time in a human resources role and thrived because I could apply classroom knowledge and best practices shared by industry experts directly to my job. Labour union simulations, case studies and discussion seminars were integral to my career development in human resources.
