Economic Factor HR

Professional human resources management is fundamental to the success of companies and organisations. Know-how and skills in this field are in high demand. Take the opportunity to start a science-based and at the same time practice-oriented training. Up to now you hardly find any offered courses with an academic format in Austria. Against this background, our course makes an essential contribution to the training and further education of HR managers in general. Essential components of your training are the introduction to labour law, human resources management, specific HR management and career management. You can also focus on the current topics of sustainability and diversity. As an upgrade, we offer you the 1-semester course MSc HR Management.
