|The course is based on the assumption that most students who take it are likely to embark upon careers as junior/middle managers rather than specialist HR practitioners. In these roles they will be subject to three sets of pressures: i) managing their personal performance and career; ii) managing the performance and careers of subordinates; iii) managing the policies emanating from HR specialists. The course is designed to equip students with the tools to help manage these (potentially conflicting) pressures.|
| The course is designed to encourage active participation and the students are involved in various forms of interactive learning situations. The basic learning pillars are
- Interactive lectures, complemented with reading,
- Individual reflection papers based on lectures, readings and team discussions
- Theme days, where teams are responsible for carrying out HRM practices in the class and teaching other students
- Case work in virtual teams, where the students will show their ability to analyse a company and its HRM practices and propose solutions. Moreover, they will gain experience of working in and managing dispersed teams, using technology as the main form for communication.
Language of instruction: English.
|The course will be examined throughout the course, by the means of gathering points for the various tasks. A larger portion of points can be acquired through a final paper and casework.
