About the Programme

Content

In this programme you will learn more about the strategic human resources e.g. with references to the strategic human resource role, organisational change and related processes and leadership. This programme highlights that HRM and HR activities are related to and dependent on major social trends, such as employment patterns, internationalisation, cultural differences, stratification patterns and labour market polices. This programme will provide you with the analytical skills required to work within strategic human resource management and with a central understanding of how social trends affect the organisation, HR work and and labour relations.
During the course of the programme all students have the opportunity to find a workplace placement. The programme also provides an opportunity to study one semester with masterstudents at Ruhr university, Bochum in Germany, Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck in Austria or Institut de gestion sociale, Paris in France.

Current research

The Master´s Programme connects with current research in the field and relates to topics such as social change, globalisation, the establishment of employment and company staffing, new forms of employment, recruitment and the reorganisation of HR functions, to mention a few. Students also receive crucial training in scientific work, both through courses in scientific method and theory that prepare them for their own independent study project i.e. the Master´s thesis.
The research- and teaching team is interdisciplinary and involve researchers from a number of fields, such as Business Administration, Sociology and Work Science. 

Pedagogical ideas and methods

This Master´s Programme departs from the pedagogical approach of student-centered learning, which means that the programme promotes learning activities that enable students to gain new knowledge through active participation.
In addition to more traditional lectures and seminars, learning activities include compulsory group work where the results of the group's work are presented both in writing and orally. Group work requires collegiality, active participation and assuming responsibility as well as producing independent academic texts.

Learning outcomes

The goal of this Master is to develop the students' ability to translate goals into strategies and activities, and provide the latest research, practice and methods in HRM.
