        Organizational psychology & Human Resource Management (HRM)

        Success is made by people, not by computers or systems. That is why psychology plays a central role in the economy. For example in employee motivation, change management or leadership behaviour.

        We will teach you how you, as a personnel officer, HR recruiter, HR controller, representative for company health management (BGM), can look after and lead employees and thus help to shape the company's operations and strategic orientation.

        In project-related courses you will learn how to determine and strengthen the status quo of the employer brand in cooperation with companies and how to increase employee loyalty. On the one hand, you will learn to accompany change management processes so that the acceptance of the workforce is guaranteed. On the other hand, you will have the opportunity to create workshop offers and (in part) present them to your fellow students. In diversity management, empirical projects are implemented with regard to the diversity of the workforce. With the strongly practice-oriented courses we prepare you optimally for your career entry.
