WATERLOO — The Laurier School of Business & Economics (SBE) is introducing a new Master of Science in Management
with a concentration in organizational behaviour and human resources
management to its graduate studies curriculum. Upon successful
completion of this MSc degree, students will be ready to step into a
research-based career or qualify for Laurier’s doctoral program with
the ultimate goal of a career in academics or industry.
“This is the third new research-based master’s program we have introduced in the last four months,” said Ginny Dybenko, Laurier’s dean of business and economics. “We remain committed to growing our research capabilities with new programs, research centres, funding and faculty.”
Set to begin in September 2008, the new 12-month MSc program provides students with a firm grounding in research methods, design, and quantitative analysis, as well as theory and research in the broad areas of organizational behaviour and human resource management.
“This MSc program is challenging,” said Hamid Noori, a professor and director of PhD and master’s programs at Laurier SBE. “Applicants must have a GMAT score of 650 to get in; the course content, lecture materials and major research paper really put students to the test. Once they graduate they are ready to face the challenges of their professional world.”
