Teaching is divided into lectures and seminars. Each topic starts with a rather short theoretical part which defines the main concepts (definitions, relations, tools and etc) followed by a more extensive “practical” part which will train skills for the successful realization of the HRM functions. The lectures present the development of theoretical concepts, approaches and methods in HRM, while seminars are more practically oriented towards qualitative and quantitative research methods, communication and presentation skills, and work with various documentation samples. Simulations of a real work environment are used: personnel structure, compensation schemes and other.
