Description of the studies:

The aim of the studies is to provide the necessary and reliable knowledge in the field of labor law, legal forms of employment, payroll issues and personnel documentation, as well as taxes and social insurance as related to employment. Employees already working in HR and payroll positions will benefit from these studies by being better prepared for challenges in their professional development. The studies will prepare candidates for the increasing recquirements and expectations set by the employers. These studies are intended for graduates of higher education (BA or MA) in any field of study.

The main advantage of the studies is their practical approach - the mode of studies assumes confronting theoretical knowledge with the requirements of practice, in particular through project-based classes, analysis of judicial trends, case studies and exercises.

The incredible value of the studies is reacting to the ongoing changes in the legal environment. During the course of studies, planned and newly introduced changes in the provisions of the labor law and other acts important from the point of view of HR and payroll services are taken into account. Vast majority of the classes are devoted to labor law and payroll issues supplemented by a course on communication and motivation in order to facilitate effective cooperation in a team and building understanding in the work environment.
