Additional information

The Department of Human Resource Studies is a well-established department with a strong reputation in academia. The department is well-known for its expertise in taking a balanced approach to strategic HRM (focusing on well-being, development and performance), strengths-based and lifespan approaches to HRM, and inclusive HRM. Research within the department is organised in four research labs on these core themes: 1) Aligning strategic HRM, wellbeing, and performance, 2) Enhancing worker health and well-being over the life span, 3) Learning, development, and the strengths based approach, and 4) Inclusive HRM. We aim for high quality publications and societal impact on these themes through our People Management Center. The department’s research program is part of TSB’s Herbert Simon Research Institute through which we collaborate multidisciplinary with other TSB departments on the themes of adaptive societies, organizations, and workers; healthy life span; and personalized prevention and care.

The Department of Human Resource Studies is the only department in the Netherlands that offers both a Bachelor and Master’s (including an extended Master) program in HR Studies. Our Master program has two inflow moments with a total inflow of about 170 students. The Master’s program is taught in English and the Dutch Bachelor program offers an international track in “People Management”. In our Master’s program, we offer electives that build on the expertise of our staff. Members of the department also participate in three multidisciplinary programs together with other TSB departments in which we teach HRS-related topics: the two-year Research Master program “Individual Differences and Assessment”, the Master track “Positive Psychology and Wellbeing”, and the Bachelor track “Global Management of Social Issues”. These are all taught in English.

The department offers a stimulating and supportive work environment and challenges its members to realize their ambitions and potential, building on their strengths.
