The Master's programme is divided into three sections:
First semester: foundation courses and specialisation
Second semester: foundation courses and specialisation
Third semester: Master's thesis (provided students do not have to take an additional work placement semester)
The first semester modules are worth a total of 30 credit points. During the first semester, students extend their knowledge in particular areas and start specialising.
The second semester modules - also worth 30 credit points - build on the first semester to provide additional specialised skills required for the challenges in the HR career sector.
The two semesters are accompanied by a personal development module to provide further individual skills.
For students who do not do an internship, the third semester is scheduled for completing the degree by submitting a Master's thesis and defending it in an oral exam. During the third semester, a research methodology seminar is provided to support work on the Master's thesis. The third semester is worth a total of 30 credit points.
Total credits after successful completion of the programme: 90 ECTS (120 ECTS with mandatory internship)
Selected students can be entered in the dual award programme organised with the ESC Rennes (France) or the Symbiosis International University in Pune (India).
For admission to the programme, 210 ECTS credit points are required. Applicants with 180 ECTS credit points will be required to obtain the additional 30 ECTS credit points by completing an internship in the third semester. The programme will then last four semesters.
