MSc International Human Resource Management

Mode:
full-time

As a result of market globalisation it has become increasingly important to explore the international issues related to management as organisations seek to achieve sustainable competitive advantage through their human resource. The study of, and subsequent practice in, International Human Resource Management focuses on the need to be culturally sensitive in our management of people in a cross-cultural multi-national environment.

Who is the programme for?
The programme has been developed for students who wish to, or already work within, a multi-cultural business. For those who are new to the field of Human Resource Management, the programme offers the opportunity to develop your knowledge and professional practice so that you are equipped with the ‘tools and techniques’ necessary to embark on a career in International Human Resource Management: for such students pre induction modules provide additional support. Alternatively, however, the programme also offers the opportunity for those who have been working in the field to expand their existing knowledge and challenge current practice. What is important is that you have a strong interest in Human Resource Management, you are enthusiastic, willing to work hard and have an ability to work independently.

Programme Content and Structure
In the first two semesters you will study a range of human resource topics and develop your crosscultural skills as well as achieving the generic postgraduate goals of strategic awareness, developing leadership potential and understanding the theory and practice of international business.

You will be given the opportunity to specialise in specific areas of HRM, for example Development, Reward, Managing Diversity or Global Economics, through a choice of options. In the remainder of the programme you will engage in some ‘real-life’ work based problem-solving as you research and complete an International HRM Management Report Dissertation. You will be appointed a personal research supervisor and will be required to submit an assessed research proposal prior to embarking on the dissertation itself.

Career Opportunities
Typical career destinations from this programme have included: Recruitment Consultants, Training Managers, HR Advisors and Industrial Relations Executives.

Distinctive Characteristics
The programme is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Students who successfully complete all elements are eligible for Graduate Membership of the CIPD. (Please note that you will be required to first register as a student member). This qualification will put you well ahead of other graduates in the job market as across the globe employers increasingly regard a CIPD qualification as a measure of capability and added value. There is also an opportunity for experienced people managers to be fast-tracked to Chartered Member of the CIPD on completion of the programme.
