Course content

Globalisation and an ever-changing economic landscape are introducing new opportunities and practices to effective Human Resource Management (HRM). Our MSc in International Human Resource Management will develop your understanding of real-world HR issues, developing your knowledge and practical skills, with a focus on how a strategic approach to HR can add value to organisations across the globe.

This course is particularly suitable if some, or all, of your career will involve working outside the UK or if you have an interest in global employment issues. Our MSc International HRM is fully accredited by the UK professional body (CIPD) and leads directly to Associate Membership.

The course is taught by an experienced team of lecturers, many of whom have extensive experience as HR professionals, and others who are actively researching and publishing in the field.

The course includes a work placement, and the opportunity of a live research project leading to your dissertation. It also includes a residential event and a visit to the CIPD’s national conference.
