This Master's programme prepares students to work as Human Resource Management (HRM) professionals or people managers within global organisations.

By studying this programme students will receive grounding in the field of international HRM with a specific focus on its development into a strategic function within global organisations. As well as developing a comparative awareness of the various elements of HRM practice, notably: training and development; recruitment and selection; and performance management, students will be equipped with a range of analytical, diagnostic and facilitative tools to support their future work in international teams. All students are required to complete a project during the programme but may substitute this with a dissertation, if appropriate.
