New Courses for 2024-2025

The Management and Organizational Studies department is happy to share that we have developed some new courses that will be available for the 2024-2025 academic year.

As technology, business practices and government policies continue to evolve at an increasingly rapid pace, we strive to make sure our students have access to updated and relevant courses that reflect the working environment they will soon be entering.

We believe that a successful education is one that evolves alongside changing societal and market forces, and we are confident these new course offerings will provide tangible benefits to Huron students for years to come.

 The list below provides highlights of the new courses. For more details about these courses, and for a full list of all BMOS courses, please click here.
