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
