Course content

Want to qualify professionally with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development? Study an International Human Resource Management course at a fully-accredited CIPD centre with Birmingham City Business School.

Our Postgraduate Diploma in International Human Resource Management programme is ideal if you want to qualify professionally with the CIPD.

If you wish to engage with this course part-time, the modules will run in the afternoon and evening over two years for the PG Diploma in International HRM stage, with an additional optional third year (part-time) for the MA in International HRM. For some sessions, full-time and part-time cohorts will be taught together, allowing you to the opportunity to share experiences with both UK-based and international students to incorporate a global perspective to HR issues.

By successfully completing the course part-time you will meet the requirements of the CIPD Profession Map and its core knowledge and behaviour standards at chartered level membership.

We have an experienced teaching team who combine real work experience of human resource management with the academic qualifications, bringing a strategic and conceptual view to the topics covered.

Sessions are interactive and we invite guest speakers, encourage you to work together on case studies, and incorporate role-playing activities to develop practical HR skills. Where appropriate to the individual topics covered during the course, implications for sustainability will be identified that relate to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
