Additional Information for summer term 2013
The Module Human Resources and Relations Management is a team oriented, practical workshop. The participants learn and apply theories and methodologies in a case study of a virtual company that they create and run. The workshop confronts them with an unknown environment outside the University that is very different than a classic classroom approach. This workshop will get them out of their personal "comfort zones" without overstressing them. The situation causes the students to constantly re-evaluate their roles within the team, their interactions with each other and their measures they apply to accomplish the goals.

The participants will constantly be evaluated throughout this workshop by peer-review, performance review and the degree to which they have achieved their objectives.


The concept of the workshop is to create a simulation of real business situations. Because there does not exist any absolute formula for success the students are empowered and encouraged to find their own solutions. The lecturers in this module offer active guidance and feedback during this process. The students are also given time to reflect upon their experiences as the workshop progresses by writing a personal "Leadership Diary".

In order to prepare the students for their future professional careers "Project and Process Management" will be applied as powerful Management Tools.

The 3 day workshop will serve as a case study in which the students participate. After there is a reflection phase during which literature review and research will be applied to their experiences. Finally participants have to document their key findings and lessons learned in a written seminar work and prepare a presentation to transfer this new knowledge to their fellow students
