Objectives

torna su

The MSc Management of human resources and labour studies (MLS) programme is an innovative and highly challenging two-year course of study that provides a highly multidisciplinary foundation on human resources and labour studies, maintaining a strong business and management orientation. The programme offers students a vast array of topics with a pluralistic perspective, a strong international and comparative orientation and an integrated framework between business and management decisions and labour market institutions and dynamics, in the firm belief that managers need to recognize institutional and political dynamics, and regulators need to acknowledge business needs and frameworks.

The programme has been designed to allow students to be part of a lively learning community, with ease of access to professors, instructors and practitioners, through a network of business organizations, Human resources professionals and labour regulators involved in the design and delivery of courses. Collaboration with partner organizations will allow students, among many other opportunities, to be exposed to actual tools and processes, to participate in learning activities at company sites and to take advantage of internship programmes.
