Why you should study Personnel Management

With a Master's degree, you can not only expand, deepen and specialise your knowledge in a specific subject area. In the course of your IU studies, you will also be taught more in-depth content, methodologies and skills, which many employers regard as an additional professional qualification. In many professions, a Master's degree is a prerequisite for a career or an academic career. In addition to significantly more attractive career opportunities, possible experience abroad and valuable contacts in the Business world, you can usually also expect a significantly better starting salary. Thus, the internationally recognised Master's degree offers you a whole repertoire of advantages that you could be denied with a pure Bachelor's degree.

Your IU studies in Personnel Management

In the Master's programme in Personnel Management at the IU International University of Applied Sciences, you will specifically expand your Business, Psychological and Legal skills. You will learn how to find excellent professionals, how to promote your employees professionally and how to resolve conflicts between employees and employers. Topics such as HR-Management, Employer Branding and Recruiting or Compensation and Personnel Controlling are on the programme. In addition, you can specialise in the areas of Negotiation, Change Management or Organisational Development in order to later take on leading functions, for example in the area of Online Marketing. 

A look into the future: What you'll do after graduation

With the skills and professional competences you acquire in the Master's programme in Personnel Management, you will make a significant contribution to the success of your company. Your special know-how in combination with soft skills such as people skills and organisational talent will pave the way for you to strategic, business and administrative areas of HR work. This makes you an absolute guarantee of success for many companies. As a future specialist and manager, you will take on important contract negotiations and job interviews, be responsible for maximum employee satisfaction, create incentives for new team members and clarify labour law issues. Exciting management positions in the public sector await you as a Head of the HR department, HR developer and HR consultant or as a freelance HR consultant.
