Master of Sociology - Management of Organizations, Human Resources and Knowledge

HR managers must have a strong interpersonal focus and develop creativity, originality and adaptability in their work. This programme will provide you with all the conceptual and analytical knowledge and competences needed to deal with the challenges at the operative and strategic level in the fields of organisation, human resources and knowledge management. Human resources development stems from the knowledge based society and from work with people who are carriers of knowledge, abilities and competences. Good human resources management can be a strategic comparative advantage or a breaking factor in the development of organisations, and poses many new challenges to organisations and their management.
