Master of Sociology - Management of Organizations, Human Resources and Knowledge

Master of Sociology - Management of Organizations, Human Resources and Knowledge

HR managers must have a strong interpersonal focus and develop creativity, originality and adaptability in their work. This programme will provide you with all the conceptual and analytical knowledge and competences needed to deal with the challenges at the operative and strategic level in the fields of organisation, human resources and knowledge management. Human resources development stems from the knowledge based society and from work with people who are carriers of knowledge, abilities and competences. Good human resources management can be a strategic comparative advantage or a breaking factor in the development of organisations, and poses many new challenges to organisations and their management.


In the second semester when students come to our institution there are almost no organized courses, since our Master program Sociology : Management of Organizations, Human Resources and Knowledge lasts only two semesters (1 year). The second semester is therefore reserved for the preparation of Master thesis of our students.

Consequently, the study in MEST network at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana is conducted on individual basis. This means the students have individual discussions or group discussions (in case there are at least 3 students) with the professors. Besides that the students have to prepare written papers and/or seminary works under their supervision.

The students can choose among next 5 courses :
1. European Industrial Relations (Prof. Miroslav Stanojevič)
2. Human Resources Management (Prof. Ivan Svetlik and Prof. Andrej Kohont)
3. Knowledge management (Prof. Dana Mesner Andolšek)
4. Gender, work and organizations (Prof. Aleksandra Kanjuo Mrčela and Prof. Tatjana Rakar)
