Work in HR? Become a sought-after human resources professional by attaining a master’s degree with the Levene Graduate School of Business.

Human resources managers are projected to be in high demand in the coming years. In fact, it is one of the fastest growing careers in North America, anticipating a seven percent growth rate by 2028. This rise in value comes with enticing pay increases, particularly for candidates who upskill with a master’s degree.

At the University of Regina, the Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business offers a Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM) for precisely that reason. “We are one of only a handful of schools across the country who have a specialized program in Human Resource Management at the graduate level,” says Dr. Gina Grandy, Dean of the Hill and Levene Schools of Business.

This program offers human resource (HR) managers the opportunity to enhance their current skills and experience with courses in training and development, employee selection, labour relations, health and safety, compensation, and strategic human resource management. To qualify for the program, students must have an undergraduate degree with a minimum GPA of 70 percent, and at least two years of work experience in the HR field. MHRM graduates greatly benefit from upskilling, as advanced business expertise equips them for employment in upper-level management.

Flexible course structure

“Our program has a flexible design, which means requirements to be on-site are minimal. This is the ideal program for any HR professional located across the country who wants to take their career to the next level,” says Dr. Grandy. Students can complete courses in a full-time or part-time capacity. Courses are offered online, in the evenings, via live-stream or in the form of five-day intensives.

With a total of 10 courses, this 30 credit-hour program allows students to apply what they’re learning in real time. Additionally, the pay-as-you-go structure means that students are charged only for the courses they enroll in each semester, rather than a set program fee. 2020 MHRM Graduate and Human Resources Director for FHQ Developments, Michelle Amyotte, knows that having a master’s degree furthered her career. “I have so many more opportunities because of my MHRM degree. My job doesn’t feel like a job, it’s just something I love to do.”
