The Msc in Management of Human Resources and Labour Studies (MLS) is an inspiring and challenging two-year programme that complements a business and management orientation with rigorous, interdisciplinary social science training, all from a comparative perspective.

The distinctive nature of the programme lies in its comparative approach, strong orientation toward analytics, and the adoption of a learning-by-doing teaching approach which is enriched by laboratories, guest speakers, and events.
The programme furnishes access to a network of practitioners, companies, and institutions to enlarge the breadth of learning by the students.

The course encourages students to extend their learning at the international level by joining the European Master in Labour Studies, and it provides opportunities for internships and Erasmus exchange programs
The programme offers two curricula entirely taught in English and which represent two interconnected aspects of the area of Management of Human Resources and Labour Studies:
1. The Human Resource Management and Employment Relations curriculum prepares students for a career in human resource management at the global level, with specific attention to a multidisciplinary set of competencies covering diverse topics like labour law, labour economics, industrial relations, organizational behaviour, as well as the different HR practices.

2. The Comparative Social Policy and Employment Relations curriculum prepares students for careers as social and labour policy analysts, project officers or policymakers, in the private and public sector, in applied research, social research institutions, public administrations, European and international institutions, NGOs. Its graduates are qualified to start an academic career at international academic institutions in the social science field.
The programme is designed to prepare students for a range of careers in the fields of human resource management, management, human processes and relations consulting, labour policies, and international employment relations.
Upon graduation, students will be prepared for management and research positions requiring expertise in human resources, organisational behaviour, labour law, and labour and employment policy.

The programme is intended for top-level Italian and international students. A maximum of 55 students are admitted each year, which guarantees an optimal ratio between instructors and students.
Admission is based on academic excellence. Applicants should have a bachelor's degree or equivalent; a strong interest and/or previous studies in economics, management, sociology, political sciences or related subjects; undergraduate or graduate training in mathematics and quantitative methods or a strong motivation to quickly fill their gaps in these fields; a sound knowledge of spoken and written English.
The evaluation process will consider the applicants' prior academic record, their motivation, and performance in the test.

Eligible candidates must meet the following requirements:
a) Applicants who have obtained their bachelor's degrees from Italian Universities are eligible for admission if they hold a "laurea" degree pertaining to any one of the "classi di laurea" (degree classes) listed below under the heading "Note 1".
Applicants who have completed their undergraduate studies at foreign universities are eligible for admission if they hold a bachelor's degree in economics, political science, or other broadly related subjects (from history to industrial engineering, from management to mathematics, from philosophy to sociology, and so on), provided that their bachelor's degree may be regarded as equivalent to one of the Italian "laurea" degrees listed below (Note 1).

b) All candidates holding a different bachelor's degree must have earned at least 6 ECTS in economics and/ or mathematics/ statistics. The ECTS credit value of foreign applicants' undergraduate studies will be assessed by the MLS admissions committee. Applicants holding an Italian bachelor's degree must have earned the required credits within the set of admissible "settori scientifico-disciplinari" (disciplinary scientific sectors) listed below under the heading "Note 2".

Applicants who have completed their undergraduate studies at foreign universities should exhibit a comparable academic record or competence in logic, statistics and mathematics.

The program offers the option of attending part of the program in another European country, being part of the EMLS-European Master in Labour Sciences, established in 1993 in Toulouse by 4 universities acting as founding partners.

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); Università degli Studi di Milano (IT)

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.
