Management and Regulation of Labor, Economy and Organization
The master's program of specialization "Management and Regulation of Labor, Economy and Organization" provides scientific knowledge and professional qualifications in the fields of labor, economy and organization.
The master's program of specialization "Management and Regulation of Labor and Organization" offers a profound scientific examination of the current transformations of labor, its regulation and the conditions of labor, employment and participation for people. Globalization, transnationalization, digitalization, economic structural change and diverse social developments are changing the world of labor. New production systems, global supply chains, transnational careers and spatial labor mobility, changing management concepts, and new forms of organization, employment, participation, co-determination, and protest are central pillars of these changes that are conveyed here. We focus on business, government, the social service sector, and nonprofit organizations.

Students are responsible for financing and organizing their stay abroad.
