Language : German, English


Good and motivated employees are essential for a company's success. This is precisely why smart HR-Management also relies on the knowledge and skills of its own staff in order to advance the entire company and achieve its own goals through their direct participation. This is why HR-Management concepts include tasks of traditional personnel management. With your Master's degree in Human Resource Management, you will be able to expand these in a targeted way to include aspects of strategic management, industrial relations and company organisation.


Good, motivated employees are the key to a company's success. For that, HR has to reach the highest levels of management. That's why your MBA - Human Resource Management puts you at the top management level in modern companies. Become e.g.:


You are the contact person for all matters concerning employees and personnel. Managers turn to you when they have inquiries about their employees. On another side, you are also there for employees at all times, for example, when it comes to labour law issues. You coach managers and show them how they can identify and improve potential and undesirable developments in the team. Finally yet importantly, you act as an interface between HR and other departments.

Why you should study Human Resource Management (MBA)

Your Bachelor's degree is just the beginning if you want to make a career as a manager later on. For many companies, a solid foundation of specialist knowledge is only enough for certain professions. A highly qualified and internationally recognised Master's degree is therefore worthwhile for you especially if you want to take on responsible tasks at a higher management level later on or even sit in the boss's chair. However, the additional effort required for a Master's degree is not only worthwhile in terms of your career prospects. You can also specialise, deepen your knowledge and gain valuable experience and contacts abroad. Your future employers will reward you for all of this with praise in the application process, managerial positions and a starting salary that is up to 20 percent higher.
