"With the successful participation in the course, you are well prepared for the burning strategic challenges of modern, future-oriented HR work. Furthermore, our alumni network gives you access to HR professionals from a wide range of industries and company sizes, which is unique in the D-A-CH region."

[Translate to English:] Rudolf Binderlehner

"Talent and succession management is risk management and an important success factor for management to ensure the long-term future viability of companies. The long-announced demographic change, the shortage of skilled workers and the looming retirement wave of the baby boomer generation are presenting many companies with major challenges, some of them existential. Situational ad hoc appointments are less and less possible due to the availability on the labor market. Strategic talent and succession management prepares internal high potentials with important know-how for the challenges in order to contribute to business development as quickly as possible after the position has been filled."
