Objectives

This program is available on the Grenoble campus

The program is aimed at students wishing to pursue an international management career in a global context and:

- Acquire a specific knowledge and the understanding needed to work in HRM in an international context and to contribute to its development
- Experience a unique learning environment in working with people from different nationalities, culture and academic backgrounds and sharing the same interest in international people management
- Acquire an understanding of global business and culture and extend their international network.

The mission of the MSc International Human Resource Management and Organizational Development is to build the abilities and skills necessary for future managers to recruit, manage and enhance talent while facilitating change in multicultural and international environments. The program provides an understanding of the approach to handling international human resource management operations and the differences in international and domestic HRM.

Through a blending of theory and practice, using case studies and applied learning, students will develop the competencies to understand the HR issues facing business today and positively impact organizational structure and dynamics.

The MSc International Human Resource Management and Organizational Development focuses on the human resource and organizational issues facing companies that operate in the global market. It aims to train managers able to contribute to corporate performance and social responsibility through the effective management of the company's most valuable asset: its men and women.

A WORD FROM THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR

"The MSc in International Human Resource Management and Organizational Development combines theoretical knowledge with a strong technical and practical orientation to enable students to master key operational know-how and soft skills. Students will be able to apply this knowledge to decision-making in HR and organizational development within different geographical contexts. The program has an international focus, as an ever-increasing globalization of business impacts HRM.

Program delivery relies on a mixture of pedagogical methods and techniques from traditional to interactive lectures, e-learning activities, readings, exercises, case studies, presentations, simulations, individual and multicultural team-based work.

Students will also experiment a course based on a new pedagogy: serious games.

The Final Management Project - a supervised research paper of 20,000 words - allows students to become experts in an HR-related topic of their choice covering not only technical concepts, but also professional practices and implications."

Sabine Lauria

Course content and structure

You will study five core units over the first two terms. In the third term, you will complete a dissertation, giving you the opportunity to analyse an international human resource management issue in depth.

Core course units:
- Globalisation and Employment Relations
You will gain a broad overview of some of the major areas of international human resource management and employment relations policy within multinational companies (MNCs). These policy areas will be examined within the context of frameworks for understanding MNC strategies and structures, as well as competing arguments about the impact of national and regional differences upon international HRM.

- Managing Across Borders - Contemporary Challenges
National borders continue to matter. Even within regions which have removed formal barriers to the flow of goods, finance, labour, and knowledge, a variety of differences (institutional, legal, cultural, identity, and so forth), albeit not static, exist between, and within, countries. These multi-level, multi-dimensional differences shape the contexts of ongoing transnational operations and reorganizational programmes. You will focus on the unique managerial challenges and differences between and within, that countries create for companies’ operation in multiple countries.

- International and Comparative Employment Law
You will critically evaluate national and regional differences in the regulation of labour, and their implications for international human resource management practitioners. This unit focuses on the nature of the employment contract in comparative perspective, as well as specific areas such as discrimination, recruitment and termination law.

- Organisational Learning, Change and Innovation
You will examine how organisations learn, create and utilise knowledge and respond to the competitive pressures in a globalising knowledge-based economy. This unit focuses on the interactive relationships between societal institutions and the micro-dynamics of organizational learning and innovation.

- Strategic International Human Resource Management
You will gain an understanding of the major current themes and debates in the field going beyond operational approaches to managing people and focusing on core international HR issues and functions at the strategic level. It emphases on the integration of organisational strategy and IHRM, and explores how the issues and problems in managing a global workforce can be conceived strategically and operationalized through organisation practice.

- European Employment Relations
You will explore how the European Union and other regional groupings affects the development of employment relations across the member states. Employment relations are generally studied comparatively - for example, in the 'varieties of capitalism' literature - or through the lens of multinational companies, in terms of how HR practices may or may not transfer across borders.

The regional level examines areas such as free trade areas, common markets and currency unions and how the process of economic integration has shaped its institutional development and how it has influenced pressures to harmonise employment policy and individual EU employment policies – such as equal opportunities, health and safety, employee participation and corporate social responsibility – and assesses whether these function in the interests of business competitiveness or not in relation to the rest of the world.

- Dissertation Preparation and Research Methods
This unit helps prepare you for your dissertation. You will recognise and critically evaluate approaches to management research and the assumptions upon which they are based. This will equip you to make justified choices as to appropriate quantitative/qualitative research methods for data collection and subsequent analysis. You will then be able to conduct research, and evaluate primary and secondary data sources in a systematic and critically reflective manner.You will also evaluate potential limitations to research investigation and applications and develop a coherent and appropriate research proposal, recognising the ethical implications of research investigations and their impact upon findings.

- Dissertation
This is an excellent opportunity to analyse a particular international human resource management issue in depth. By the end of the dissertation, you will be able to plan and manage a project, define aims and objectives, identify appropriate data sources and collection methods, be aware of and deal with potential pitfalls, execute a dissertation plan, and construct an effective argument.

On completion of the course graduates will have:
- demonstrated the ability to critically evaluate the practice of international HRM, and consider the kinds of contextual factors that international HR managers need to consider when making decisions

- gained an appreciation of national and regional variations in social and economic conditions, and how these affect the way the employment relationship is conducted

- grasped the significance and efficacy of transnational comparative analysis

- become familiar with the various approaches to the management of human resources within multinational companies

- equipped themselves with the necessary understanding of key policy areas to make an effective contribution as international HR practitioners.

Assessment

Assessment is carried out by a variety of methods including coursework, examinations and a dissertation.

Career opportunities

- Where are our graduates now?
MSc International HRM is a new course launching in September 2015. However, it builds upon the success of the MSc HRM which has produced graduates whose successful careers have seen them work, in various capacities (as HR specialists or in other management roles) for a range of public, private, for-profit or not-for-profit organisations operating in many industry sectors across the world, including:
- NHS
- Sun Microsystems
- Royal Bank of Scotland
- Nestle
- Ernst & Young
- United Nations
- Heineken
- Central and local government
- Universities around the world

Some of our more established alumni (MSc HRM) are currently leading and shaping the strategy of global organisations - here is an example of how a few former MSc HRM students have advanced in their careers:
- Human Resource Director, Detica (UK)
- Director, Workplace Solutions (India)
- HR Manager, PT. Bank Niaga Tbk (Indonesia)
- Head of Business Support, Royal Bank of Scotland
- Group Manager, CGU Plc (UK)

Indeed, it offers a solid foundation upon which to base a career in different areas related to business practice or to local or international socio-economic development policy-making and implementation.

Employability

Throughout the course of their studies, our students are introduced to a broad range of topical issues which enable them to better understand the challenges of work in various types and sizes of organisations operating both locally and globally.
Students on the MSc in International HRM learn significant transferable skills valued by employers, such as the ability to research relevant data and critically analyse these to inform contextual decisions, the ability to work in a team, to conduct projects and deliver effective presentations in time and to a high quality, and the ability to reflect upon contemporary management practice in an informed manner.
Their learning and development is further supported by encounters with guest-speakers with various industry expertise, as well as field trips (e.g. New Lanark) and the opportunity to take part in business-simulations with fellow students across the Management School (eg. the Strip Steel Business Challenge).
