Winter Apprenticeship

MW95 - International Human Resource Management

We last offered the master's module "MW95 - International Human Resource Management" in the winter semester 2022/23. In the first course, the focus was on conveying basic thematic and methodological knowledge, which was supplemented by guest lectures. In the second course, our students carried out their own empirical project, which meant that the module could also be used as preparation for an empirical master's thesis.

The students particularly liked the personal support inside and outside the course, as well as the comprehensible communication of the complex content through a good structure of the learning content. Last but not least, gamification elements led to a lively exchange during the hybrid classroom sessions and encouraged active participation. The integration of SPSS into practice-oriented content was also perceived as particularly positive. The guest lectures offered were found to be enriching and exciting.

We are pleased and thankful for the positive teaching evaluation of this module - see you next semester!

Module Description

The master module deals with the characteristics of international human resource management as well as the fields of activity and instruments of strategic human resource management in an international context. It also serves as preparation for an empirical master's thesis, as is currently expected in almost every major.  After you have been taught about international human resource management in course 1, you will conduct your own empirical project in group work in course 2 based on what you have learned.
