Management (International Human Resource Management)

This master's programme prepares students to work as Human Resource Management (HRM) professionals or people managers within global organisations. Approved by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), this course combines theory with insights from practice. By studying this programme students will receive grounding in the field of international HRM with a specific focus on its development into a strategic function within global organisations. As well as developing a comparative awareness of the various elements of HRM practice, notably: training and development; recruitment and selection; and performance management, students will be equipped with a range of analytical, diagnostic and facilitative tools to support their future work in international teams. All students are required to complete a project during the programme but may substitute this with a dissertation, if appropriate. **Careers** Our International Human Resource Management graduates follow a variety of paths upon graduation. Some enter (or return to) traditional HRM roles with the benefit of CIPD membership. Typical career paths include roles in learning and development or recruitment. The programme is also directly relevant to students seeking senior managerial positions in international organisations with responsibility for the management of people. Our graduates tell us that the MSc in International Human Resource Management gives them the key skills required to build a career in HRM as well as providing the opportunity for CIPD membership.
