Course content

The MSc International Human Resource Management (IHRM) provides a broad understanding of the importance of people management in organisational development and business operations. The course builds on current trends in the internationalisation of work, occupations and management activities by offering a unique perspective on the challenges facing the HR profession and HRM practice in a global economy. It addresses both contemporary debates on HR management practices, and reflections on business organisation governance and strategy in an international context.
The course develops HR managers and leaders who are able to deliver responsible, particpatory and sustainable service to their organisation, whether they work, in a private firm, a public agency or a not-for-profit organisation operating with an international workforce or across the world. It is especially designed for those who wish to work in organisations employing an international and diversified workforce, and to have responsibility for developing local and global HR systems that incorporate corporate social responsibility, innovation and participatory practices.
Accreditation
The Division has associated PhDs including those funded by ESRC/Skills Development Scotland.
