EHRM is an international programme focusing on European issues within International HRM. Topics covered include strategic HRM, psychological contracts and career management, empowerment and people performance, reward management, intercultural management, team dynamics etc. The first Residential rests on and familiarizes students with core theory within European and International HRM but aims at giving students specific action oriented competencies such as project-management and consultancy-skills, with which the student can apply the general knowledge to specific tasks in an organization. In this sense, the programme has a strong professional orientation, providing a platform for future career.

During the first residential the students will receive presentations of all in company projects. Thereafter, they have to decide together how they will divide the group into teams and assign those teams to specific projects.
