Course content

Human Resource Management (HRM) and Leadership are two fields of research and practice that are intimately intertwined, and that are of great importance for students’ abilities to succeed well in roles as managers or leaders. The overall aim of the course is to offer students basic knowledge about HRM and leadership by introducing central topics within the two fields of research, and by offering possibility to learn by practice.

The core content of the course includes classic as well as recent studies into HRM and leadership, also relating to how these dimensions in an organization relates to strategy as well as operative activities. The students will be introduced to central contributions within research on HRM and leadership, and they will also get the opportunity to apply some of this knowledge in practice. An increased knowledge and understanding of these two areas will provide students with greater possibilities to consciously and in a competent way manage their own future performance and career and also to, in the role as managers/leaders, take on the responsibility for managing and supporting the performance and careers of subordinates.

The course also includes elements with the aim of training students in analytical thinking and academic writing.

Teaching and working methods

The course is designed to involve students in different types of learning activities, where they will meet various teachers with various pedagogical methods and different research profiles.
