Human Resources Management

Master of Human Resources Management

The executive-style MHRM is designed to provide professional HRM specialists with the skills and credentials necessary to become senior-level professionals. Offered on a full-time or part-time basis, the MHRM program was developed to work around a busy schedule.

Explore issues such as organizational change and development, labour relations, strategic compensation, international HR, and the impact of HR policies, practices and programs on employee and organizational performance. In addition to classroom seminars, you will have the option of rounding out your studies with an independent research paper developed under the guidance of one of our world-class professors. The program will help you acquire the competencies, recognition and status that a graduate degree brings, and prepare you to take on a leadership role in this expanding and exciting field.

PhD in Human Resources Management

York’s PhD is distinguished by its diverse methodological approach to research and emphasis on pedagogical training. It contributes to the growth of HRM as a unique discipline, while acknowledging its interdisciplinary foundations.

Students completing the York PhD in HRM program will have a distinct advantage over similar graduates from other schools in North America. In addition to knowledge and expertise in quantitative research methods, students will gain exposure and training in alternative methods that critically evaluate the ontological assumptions and epistemological approaches of much of current HRM scholarship. While positivist approaches continue to dominate research activity in HRM, there is an increasingly important role for qualitative research methods, located in an interpretivist paradigm. Faculty associated with the PhD program in HRM have extensive expertise in both positivist and interpretivist research. Furthermore, this expertise covers many bases within interpretivism itself. This breadth and diversity of training is not typically available in most institutions in Canada.

Students will also receive more rigorous training in university teaching and pedagogy compared to what most other programs offer. For years, there has been a growing emphasis on the need to produce high quality teachers as well as high quality researchers and HRM professionals. While almost all Ph.D. programs recognize the value of excellent teaching, few programs actually incorporate pedagogical training into their courses. Given the belief in the value of generating excellence in teaching and research, this program makes pedagogical training a requirement.
