General Teaching Objectives

The Chair’s objective is to give students a high-quality education based on three main principles: theory, business relevance, and empirical evidence. Our teaching allows students to acquire general knowledge in a variety of topics, to develop skills to apply theoretical frameworks to practice, and to draw practical implications from scientific work. The Chair implements empirical evidence-based approaches that enable students to further examine topics in areas of HRM and Asian business based on empirical studies and research methods. Furthermore, our teaching covers current topics and case studies, and also provides opportunities for the students to engage in cooperative projects with companies. For those students who are interested in research careers, opportunities for participation in ongoing research projects will be provided.

Philosophy of supervision and information on scientific work

When supervising seminar papers and dissertations, we attach great importance to creating a balance between support and autonomy in line with the supervision philosophy in the focus of corporate management.

As the chair for human resources management we prepare you for scientific working with the following three modules:

Due to our diverse teaching content and research interests, the chair offers a comprehensive and diverse range of topics for your seminar papers and dissertations. The focus is on the profound processing of practical relevant questions. The topics offered include expatriate management, global leadership, diversity management, entrepreneurship, talent management and courses on research methodology.
