An introduction

In 2013, I recorded my two-semester introductory lecture for Bachelor students at Furtwangen University. Today, this series is the most successful MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) in HR worldwide. It now forms the basis for numerous lectures at universities around the globe.

The whole spectrum of HR

This lecture covers everything you need to know about HR. The topics at a glance: Introduction, HR strategy, HR planning, recruitment, selection, compensation, learning, development, employee surveys, work and working conditions, employee retention, social media, HR organisation, HR controlling, IT, change management.


This course is aimed at students with an interest in business, human resources management or industrial and organisational psychology. Most followers, on the other hand, are HR professionals, HR managers and thoses who moved into HR from other functions and who want to get an overview or complete their knowledge.
