Within the context of the globalisation of markets and of competition, human resources are an ever more decisive factor of competitive advantage for both companies and non-profit organisations. With the progressive leveling of the fields of technological and process know-how, the individual is indeed the one true discriminating factor.
Ultimately, the individual’s competencies, motivations, innovation capabilities and overall professional performance quality determine an organisation’s success. From such a perspective, companies and institutions must equip themselves with experts capable of both fully understanding the central role of the individual and of overseeing the related managerial processes, such as: selection, hiring, training, communication, development and compensation.
On the other hand, modern human resources professionals cannot neglect the international dimension that all activities are increasingly taking on and must therefore be able, for example, to understand and handle global organisations’ diversity management dynamics and complexity profiles.
Within this framework, the Rome Business School’s Master’s Degree course in International Human Resources Management is the ideal choice for all those who wish to excel as human resources professionals in the job market at the international level, providing all the necessary knowledge, operational competencies and professional and networking opportunities on a global scale.

The programme emphasises a diagnostic case study approach in in its core modules, with an emphasis on practical, theoretically-informed discussion and strategy development.
The pathway explores current and recent trends in public administration and human resources, focusing on relationship between hard and soft approaches to the analysis and practice of management, for example between human resources management and human resource development, between leadership and management and between vertical bureaucracy and decentralised collaboration. The pathway considers the interaction between organizational structure, culture, power and motivation in public administration and in international organisations.
Teaching takes place over two ten-week terms, utilizing a range of teaching and learning methods, including short lectures, problem solving, role play and group work.
The knowledge and skills gained in the programme will equip graduates for jobs in international, national and local government and non-governmental organisations.
