MSc Human Resource Management

How do you train and motivate employees? What is excellent leadership? And how do you create teams that ensure great performance? Human Resource Managers tackle these questions.

In the one-year Master's degree programme in Human Resource Management (HRM) you learn to accomplish organizational goals by matching tasks, roles and positions with a company's strategy and environment. Also, you learn about traditional fields of personnel management such as recruitment, selection and training.

As a student of HRM you will explore HRM policies and practices. You learn to anticipate changes which affect the management of work and people within an organization. These can be internal and external changes. Therefore topics such as technological development, internationalization of business and changing legislations are of interest as well. Also, you learn to function within different management teams.

In this programme you take specific HRM courses like Work Design and Team Processes. In addition, you take managerial courses and courses on social topics such as social security and labour conditions. You complete the programme by writing a thesis.
