York University’s School of Human Resource Management (HRM), in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, brought home all four Canadian HR Reporter Reader’s Choice Awards for best education in Canada for the third consecutive year.
The School of HRM edged out competitive programs offered by other academic institutions, including the University of British Columbia, the University of Toronto and Queen’s University.
In its fifth year, the 2020 Reader’s Choice Awards survey received thousands of votes from human resource and business professionals in recognition of their preferred organizations across the country. Every York HRM program was nominated and selected as the winner in its respective category, including the PhD HRM program, the executive master’s program (MHRM), the bachelor’s degree programs (BHRM) and the certificate in HRM.
The school has received continuous recognition from graduates, students and experts in the field across Canada for years, while remaining a consistent source of educational excellence.
“We are delighted and honored to be given these awards for a third straight year. My thanks to all those who have helped to make our programs considered the best in Canada. We promise to uphold the exceptional standards of teaching and learning in the field of HR, while providing our students with opportunities to help them build successful careers,” said Professor Parbudyal Singh, director of the School of HRM at York University.
The School of HRM is Canada’s largest teaching institution dedicated to the broad field of human resource management, with more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 17 full-time faculty members that expose students to a wide range of ideas, disciplines, opinions and research methodologies.
“York’s strong reputation for academic excellence and innovation in the HR discipline, plus the executive program delivery approach, does not disappoint,” said Laura Alfano Victoria, senior director at McKesson Canada, and MHRM Candidate 2021. “I have had the good fortune to learn from engaging and supportive faculty members who are true experts in their subject matter, as well as fellow students who bring a wealth of industry experience and unique perspectives that complement the academic course content.”
