Only satisfied employees put in the full effort for their company. Nevertheless, the output in facts and numbers is not everything. A smart HR management strategy also relies on the knowledge and skills of its employees to drive the company forward through their direct participation. That is why HRM concepts include, among other things, the tasks of traditional personnel management. However, the HRM concepts are extended to include aspects of strategic management, industrial relations and corporate organisation.

Your MBA degree program puts you on the right track right from the start, because you will combine business administration knowledge with management skills before turning to your specialisation in HR Management. Among other things, you will deal with the areas of recruiting, employer branding and talent management. At the same time, you will improve your soft skills, for example in the area of intercultural communication. In your specialisation in Human Resource Management, you will work on the basics of personnel development. You will learn how to plan, design and implement HR projects. You will apply your newly acquired knowledge directly in your first project. You will learn-by-doing, and face the challenges and problems HR management has to deal with in practice. You will then be able to solve them with concepts and methods of modern HR and project management.

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.

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.:

HR-Business-Partner (m/w/d)

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.

Recruiting Manager (m/w/d)

The really good employees want to be found. That is why, as a Recruiting Manager, you develop strategies to proactively attract skilled employees to your company - and to keep them. In doing so, you will build your own networks and talent pools that you can use for every new position that needs to be filled. Organising job fairs is just as much a part of your job as sifting through application documents and conducting initial interviews. 

People Development Manager (m/w/d)

You support employees in their personal development, their individual strengths and their potential. In doing so, you will work closely with the functional managers and take care of long-term competence and capacity management. At the same time, you promote an open feedback and error culture. As a disciplinary supervisor, you are also responsible for administrative processes such as time and performance management or recruiting.
