Queen’s Employment Relations was established as a full-time graduate degree program in 1983. As Canada's leading university in the field of Employment Relations, we have educated many of Canada’s top human resources and employment relations professionals and take pride in the positive impact our graduates have had on the world of work.

...possessing an MIR from a prestigious school such as Queen’s definitely made me stand out to employers. I was often promoted (in the U.S) because I was “academy trained".

~Alison DeMille, MIR '91
