Certificate in Applied Human Resources Management

The Certificate in Applied Human Resource Management program is designed to provide broad theoretical and practical knowledge consistent with the competencies recognized by many HR professional associations and employers.

Students planning to pursue additional professional certification will be encouraged to consult appropriate HR professional bodies and faculty advisors who can help ensure appropriate alignment of academic preparation and certification requirements.

The program curriculum mirrors the HR-related content of UNB Fredericton's BBA Honours in Human Resources Management. Certificate students who apply to and are accepted into the BBA program offered by the Faculty of Business Administration can take their credits with them.
