MSc in International Human Resource Management (Full-time)
Professor Dennis Nickson gives an introduction to the MSc International HRM
The management of human resources is increasingly taking place in a global context. More people are working for international organisations and the labour force is becoming more culturally diverse, competition between companies and countries is more global, and as the global financial crisis has shown, the world economy is increasingly interlinked and subject to regulation by international bodies. All this makes the study of human resource management more important and more international in scope.
The MSc in International Human Resource Management allows for the development of an understanding of how and why human resource policies and practices differ across the world, and how internationally operating organisations manage the process of addressing these challenges.
The course is not just for those with an interest in working in a human resources function, but is aimed at giving an understanding of the processes of globalisation of the economy and how this impacts on work and employment in a variety of different national and organisational contexts. Students will be equipped with the ability to think critically about these issues.
The course attracts students from around the world, creating a multicultural cohort which facilitates learning from peers throughout the programme.
