Director: Professor Francisco Nunes
The Department of Human Resources and Organizational Behavior (DRHCO) comprehends 22 faculty members, among which 18 hold a PhD. Its members have been conducting innovative research within international networks. Some of its members assume leading professional positions at several organizations and are usually involved in partnerships with public institutions and business corporations thus bridging the development of management practices with research relevancy and teaching excellence.
The Department coordinates an integrated set of courses in HRM at the undergraduate degree, master and PhD level. The adoption of English as a teaching language at the Master and PhD level stimulates the international mobility of its alumni. The Department is also responsible for the Master in Organizational Behavior.
The Department holds as a principle the balance between scientific rigor and professional relevancy. To achieve this, the Department privileges the research and publication at the international level, participates in several European research networks, and simultaneously builds upon a strong tradition of working closely with the business community, thus producing actionable knowledge useful to develop organizations that integrates our economic surroundings.
