MSc Management of Human Resources & Labour Studies
The MSc Management of Human Resources and Labour Studies (MLS) programme is an innovative and highly challenging two-year course of study that provides a highly multidisciplinary foundation on human resources and labour studies, maintaining a strong business and management orientation.
The programme offers students a vast array of topics with a pluralistic perspective, a strong international and comparative orientation and an integrated framework between business and management decisions and labour market institutions and dynamics, in the firm belief that managers need to recognize institutional and political dynamics, and regulators need to acknowledge business needs and frameworks.
The programme offers a unique opportunity to study human resource management and labour studies in Southern Europe, being exposed to a different culture and language while attending classes in English. In a global world of business the richness of this experience represents a clear competitive advantage.
