Human Resource Management (WiSe)

In this course, students will learn how human resource management activities and practices can be applied in order to influence the attitudes, behavior and the performance of an organization’s workforce to ensure the organization’s achievement of strategic goals.

A particular emphasis will be put on the relevance of evidence-based human resource management. By means of application of theory and current research findings, students will get to know the state-of-the-art of HR practices (e.g., job design, selection, performance appraisal, rewards) and transfer the knowledge to solve practical problems.
