Update: Summer Term 2020
We are happy to confirm that we will offer all of our planned courses in the upcoming summer semester 2020. The courses will take alternative formats, and use digital and interactive tools whenever possible (e.g. zoom, online videos). Detailed information on the contents and formats of specific courses will be available in the LSF soon (please check the LSF regularly).
Please make sure that you are prepared for the summer term, and install the needed software tools (e.g. zoom) on your personal devices before the semester. The needed tools as well as the availability of LMU-licenses will be indicated in the syllabi and information of the respective courses.
We are pleased to work with you and will keep you informed about potential short-term changes.
In the meantime, we wish you and your families all the best – stay healthy and think positive!
Ingo Weller and the Institute Team
Teaching Concept and Program
Our teaching concept is based on the two pillars of sound theory and practical impact. We are firmly convinced that there are no easy solutions to HR problems. We are also convinced that HR managers can make a difference, for their businesses and for society as a whole. We use a variety of teaching methods and media: Lectures and tutorials; interactive seminars; and hands-on courses (e.g., STATA/R software). In our research and teaching programs, we cooperate with partners and speakers from the local and national industry, as well as international researchers.
Our teaching program is directed at students with an interest in
- Positions in HR
- Leadership positions
- Consulting firms
- Social science research institutions
