Working Life and Personnel Issues programme (Tyhe)
The multidisciplinary Working Life and Personnel Issues programme (Tyhe) provides students with practical competence and complements the master’s degrees offered by the University’s faculties. In practical working life, there is a demand for people with broad expertise in personnel and human resources.
As the economy and working life have changed and become more complex, the need for working life and personnel expertise has increased. Academic graduates are often employed in various management, expert and personnel management positions that require broad knowledge, expertise and understanding of practices related to working life issues.
The Working Life and Personnel Issues programme was launched at the University of Turku in 2009 and is coordinated by the Turku Centre for Labour Studies.
The Working Life and Personnel Issues programme consists of 25–40 credits and includes courses from different faculties of the University, and especially from the Turku School of Economics, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, and Åbo Akademi. The programme can be completed as part of a bachelor’s or master’s degree.
Using a multidisciplinary approach, the programme examines various personnel issues as well as personnel as part of the operations of businesses and organisations. The main goal is to familiarise students with working life- and personnel-related issues, so that they are able to analyse, understand and manage them. After completing the programme, the students will possess the theoretical, conceptual and practical competence to tackle the following themes and issues:
• working life and wellbeing at work
• labour law
• labour market and policy
• human resources management
• current labour market issues.
The Working Life and Personnel Issues programme provides students with a comprehensive understanding of and ability to manage working life phenomena, which enables them to work as experts in businesses and public sector organisations. In addition, the programme also prepares students for working life research.
