722A30 Perspectives on Human Resource Management, 10 ECTS
Welcome to the master course Perspectives on Human Resource Management!
This course will develop the students’ knowledge and understanding of Human Resource Management (HRM) from different perspectives and in different contexts. The basic assumption is that HRM is central for any business context, and this particular side of management will be illustrated from various angles. The students will be introduced to the HRM concept, its background and definitions, and to fundamental schools within the HRM field of research. We will then pay particular attention to four perspectives. The first two perspectives relate to HRM in specific organisational contexts: (1) Project-based organisations and (2) Public organisations and non-profit organisations. The last two perspectives relate to HRM in a wider societal and international context: (3) HRM and societal trends, and (4) International HRM.
Course period: Spring semester, end of April - beginning of June
For registered students, more detailed course information is available on the learning platform Lisam at the latest two weeks before the course starts.
Course start: 22 April
Final exam: 2-5 June (take-home exam)
