You will be exposed to a wide range of contemporary perspectives on key developments in and around international human resource management (IHRM) and organisational analysis, providing access to a range of alternative views. You will explore relevant IHRM issues and what these mean for individuals and organisations at local, national and international levels.
You should normally hold a first degree from a recognised institution (minimum Lower Second Class Honours), or overseas equivalent in a related field. Those with extensive experience who do not possess a first degree can also be considered. If English is not your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum score of 6 in each component.
The course is designed to appeal to candidates from outside the UK wishing to pursue or enhance a career in HRM that has or may have an international dimension. To provide the necessary knowledge, the course offers the opportunity to undertake an 8-week internship and includes modules which focus on international personnel management, corporate international HRM, and managing change and culture. The course will enable you to build a body of practical skills and theoretical knowledge around the management of organisations within different international contexts.
