Organisation

Centre for Global Human Resource Management (CGHRM) is an inter-disciplinary collaboration between two faculties and two departments at the University of Gothenburg: the Department of Business Administration at the School of Business, Economics and Law, and the Department of Sociology and Work Science at the Faculty of the Social Sciences. The Department of Business Administration serves as host institution for CGHRM.

The Centre is run by a steering committee, and also consists of two advisory bodies where one represents private and public partner organisations and one represents academia. While the first focuses on practical relevance, the second aims to ensure academic quality.
