The English-language Bachelor's degree programme in HR Management & Communication is a full-time degree programme that is designed to be completed while working. In order to be able to study alongside a job or under other individual circumstances, the Bachelor's degree programme is delivered in a blended learning format.
The programme offers a scientifically based business education with a focus on HR management and communication. In addition to fundamental business knowledge, specialised expertise in human resource management and communication as well as social and intercultural skills are taught.
Students on the programme should acquire comprehensive management skills and develop a high level of social communication skills. The university college promotes the development and strengthening of emotional intelligence as well as important skills such as problem-solving skills and critical thinking, which will be of essential relevance for the future labour market despite the rapid increase in technology.

Course Contents:

Students develop skills that enable them to work in all areas of business administration, in particular human resource management. The programme focuses on specialist knowledge in the areas of HRM and communication. In addition, students acquire a broad economic background with the necessary knowledge of law, which prepares them for future professional fields. The broad-based economics programme includes courses in general business administration and economics. These fundamental subject areas are supplemented by courses in the fields of digitalisation, sustainability and business management, which are designed to prepare students in particular for the future requirements of human resources departments in a dynamic and global environment. Analytical and academic skills are promoted through courses on statistics and data analysis as well as research methods and scientific work. The programme is enhanced by teaching key social communication skills such as negotiation, critical thinking, problem-solving methods and in-depth language skills in business and academic English.

Organisational Format

The blended learning format enables students to work independently of time and place by regularly and didactically alternating between face-to-face and online phases.
The blended learning concept thus offers a varied and learning-promoting programme with different social forms and learning activities, which also gives students a certain degree of personal responsibility. This includes self-directed learning (asynchronous teaching), in which students determine the time, intervals, pace and location of their learning activities themselves, as well as face-to-face e-learning (synchronous teaching), which takes place at different locations on a fixed date through virtual direct communication.

Blended Learning

Time-efficient & job-enabling

Career possibilities:

Graduates of the degree programme are qualified to take on general business management tasks. In particular, later professional fields and career opportunities arise in the cooperation in personnel planning of small and medium-sized enterprises, which significantly shape the Austrian corporate landscape, and larger organisations. In addition, they can be employed in the development, planning and implementation of recruiting and personnel development measures, personnel marketing and employer branding, performance management, digitalised personnel administration, personnel planning and management, as well as supporting change processes in companies and organisations.
