International Semester Programme

SUSTAINABLE HRM, strategies, practices, and challenges


All courses are aimed at giving you a more profound understanding of Sustainable HRM in a world that has become more and more VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous). During the programme you will be exposed to a variety of learning activities: company visits, lectures, self-study, presentations, work on a portfolio, working on a specific project, visits with grassroot organisations, connecting with the city academy on sustainability and many more…
