Course content

Our International Human Resource Management MSc course gives you a deep insight into the strategies and techniques multinationals use to solve HRM issues when their employees work across multiple countries and leaves you with a respected academic qualification.

The course has been designed to meet employers' needs and gives you the tools you need to succeed in senior human resources roles, executive training and development roles. You will be taught by expert academics, leading researchers, alongside many guest speakers, visiting professors and fellows.

The MSc top-up course is designed for students who want to upgrade their PgDip in an HR related field or international human resource management to an MSc.

Following an induction programme that prepares you for intensive study, you will evaluate various external influences on HRM practice in organisations - from global strategic developments to ethical issues and social responsibility.

The taught part of the programme is normally during four weekends. While you are expected to be physically present on these four weekends, the dissertation supervisor meetings can be held online and via email.

You are expected to start thinking about what topic you want to focus on in your dissertation from the moment you enrol. In order to make an informed decision about this, you start with some background reading. The University has a huge electronic library you are encouraged to access from the moment they enrol.
