The MSc Management of human resources and labour studies 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.

The programme will provide a learning experience to acquire advanced knowledge and skills in Labour and HR management, which can be applied in a variety of management roles in global business organizations and regulatory institutions, with a specific European focus.

Graduate destinations

The majority of our graduates work in human resource management roles, mainly in larger business organizations, or join international and national labour studies institutions.

Presently, the EMLS network (http://www.mest-emls.eu/) operates in 10 European countries (Germany, The Netherlands, Great Britain, Ireland, Belgium, France, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Italy) through 13 member universities, among the most prestigious in this field:

  • London School of Economics (UK);
  • Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (ES);
  • Universität Bremen (DE)
  • Université Catholique de Louvain (BE) ;
  • University College -Dublin (IE);
  • Università degli Studi di Firenze (IT);
  • Université de Toulouse 1 Capitole- Toulouse (FR);
  • Universität Trier (DE) ;
  • Warwick University (UK);
  • Universiteit van Amsterdam (NL);
  • Instituto Superior de Ciencias do Trabalho-ISCTE Lisboa (PT);
  • University of Ljubljana (SL); 

The overall objective of the network has been to establish a joint curriculum, with a distinctive focus on Europe in order to promote a comparative approach both in research and education in the field of Labour Studies.
To this end, member universities have each developed a similar, and comparable, multidisciplinary program.

All member university shall:

  1. Provide knowledge on the European context
  2. Provide multidisciplinary training on labour studies (labour economics, labour sociology, labour psychology, labour law, labour politics, HRM)
  3. Develop a European comparative approach

At the completion of the six-month program, which is part of the Erasmus+ program, students receive a degree from the Réseau Interuniversitaire Européen en Sciences du Travail.

On the basis of the existing relation within the EMLS-MEST program, the MLS course has established a bilateral double degree agreement with the Universität Bremen, which will award a dual graduation to participating students.
