Personalmanagement studieren

Auf welcher Seite wollen Sie bei einem Vorstellungsgespräch sitzen? Für den Erfolg eines Unternehmens sind die Mitarbeiter verantwortlich. Jedes Unternehmen will die besten Köpfe auf den richtigen Positionen haben. Natürlich. Aber das wollen alle. Auf der ganzen Welt. Internationale Unternehmen konkurrieren um die besten Talente der Welt. Mitarbeiter finden, halten und weiterentwickeln – das ist die Aufgabe von HR-Managern. Human Resources studieren – an der CBS – bringt Sie dahin. Besonders gefragt sind Experten, die nicht nur ihr Personal-Geschäft verstehen und aktuelle Trends kennen, sondern zusätzlich die komplexe Geschäftswelt verstehen. International.

Auf die neuesten Entwicklungen vorbereitet sein

Human Resources studieren Sie an der CBS im Rahmen des International Business Studiums und spezialisieren sich dort auf Human Resources Management and Leadership. Unterrichtssprache ist Englisch. Sie erwerben in den Semestern 3 bis 6 HR-Fachwissen, beginnend mit den Grundlagen: Gewinnen von Mitarbeitern, Weiterbildung, Personalentwicklung und Entlohnungs- und Belohnungsmanagement. Psychologie und Soziologie? Gehören ebenfalls dazu. Bereits im 4. Semester wenden Sie Ihr Wissen bei einem Business-Projekt oder im Rahmen von Case Studies an. Dort bearbeiten sie reale oder realitätsnahe Aufgaben und präsentieren diese. Sie lernen auch, wie digitales Talent Management aktuell den kompletten Berufszweig umkrempelt, welche Strategien im Employer Branding erfolgreich sind und welchen Stellenwert die Work-Life-Balance haben kann.

Entwickeln Sie Führungs-Kraft

Human Resources ist in jedem Unternehmen eine Abteilung, die Menschen mit Führungsqualitäten erfordert. Sie lernen bei uns Führungstheorien kennen, wie Personalmanagement funktioniert, wie sich das Arbeitsrecht von Branche zu Branche und Land zu Land unterscheidet, und wie Sie zu einer ethisch und nachhaltig handelnden und erfolgreichen Führungskraft werden können.

Interkulturelle Kompetenz? Erwerben Sie bei uns automatisch

In Deutschland bewirbt man sich mit Foto und Gehaltsvorstellung, in Großbritannien sind Fotos oft verpönt und das Gehalt steht schon in der Stellenanzeige. Personalmanagement unterscheidet sich sehr stark von Land zu Land. Gut, dass sie bei einem Pflicht-Auslandssemester an einer unserer Partnerhochschulen ein Land besser kennen lernen. Dazu werden Sie auch bei einem Praktikum Ihre ersten Sporen im Berufsleben erwerben. Gern im Ausland. Welche Hochschule oder welches Unternehmen Sie bei Ihren Plänen optimal weiterbringt, müssen Sie nicht selbst herausfinden. Wir unterstützen Sie bei der Auswahl.

Soft Skills: ein starker Vorteil

Human Resources studieren an der CBS vermittelt nicht nur Theorie und Praxis, sondern auch wertvolle persönliche Fähigkeiten. Soft Skills. Die erwerben Sie im Rahmen von Kursen in jedem Semester. Denn Personalmanagement erfordert viel Fingerspitzengefühl und rhetorische Fähigkeiten. Jeder Bewerber will den Job, viele bekommen ihn nicht. Mitarbeiter können erstaunlich hart verhandeln, wenn sie wissen, dass sie schwer ersetzbar sind. Recruiting-Kulturen unterscheiden sich weltweit. Und wenn Sie beim Vorstand eine Personalentwicklungsstrategie vorstellen, helfen Ihnen Präsentations-Skills.

Ihr Karriereweg startet da, wo Karrieren Tagesgeschäft sind

Human Resources studieren bringt Sie durch die Unternehmenskooperationen der CBS bereits mit den HR-Abteilungen interessanter Unternehmen zusammen. Und da wollen Sie auch hin. Mit ihrem internationalen Abschluss bei uns und Ihren exzellenten Englisch-Kenntnissen haben Sie hervorragende Startchancen. Bei einem großen internationalen Unternehmen können Sie sich auf einen Teilbereich spezialisieren, beispielsweise das Fördern von Talenten, Diversity Management oder die strategische Personalsteuerung. In einem mittelständischen Unternehmen sind dagegen Generalisten gefragt, die alle Fäden im Personalwesen zusammenhalten – an allen Standorten weltweit. Die Berufswelt steht Ihnen offen!
