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.

The MSc International Human Resource Management is both academically challenging, with input from world-leading academics, and practically focused, giving you the opportunity to develop the confidence, knowledge and skills needed for a successful career in International Human Resource Management.

Central to this is the idea of the international HR manager who combines specialist technical knowledge with a strong understanding of the social, political and ethical context of business in a globalised world.

In this world, in addition to technical expertise in particular HR functions, managers need to understand national differences and how to manage in cross-cultural environments. They need to be aware of how to organise processes and projects across national boundaries. They need to be able to analyse the impact of different national institutional contexts on firm structures, innovation processes and work organisation. They need to be aware of the broader social and environmental consequences of their actions and the way in which national and international structures of soft and hard law impact on their policies and procedures. They need to be sensitive to changing social expectations of the responsibilities of firms and the way in which new internet based technologies make companies more visible and accountable to global social movements as well as more locally based coalitions of citizens and consumers. They need to be able to reflect on how to be an HR manager in such complex contexts, and to adapt creatively and effectively to challenges in a fast-moving environment.

The course will look at the management of people including theories of management and organisation, motivation, groups and team working, internal structures and decision-making processes, and leadership. The management of the various activities associated with the practice of HRM, namely recruitment and selection, training and development, reward management employment law, equality and diversity will also be examined.

The course will also explore the nature of the organisation, the strategy and structure of multinational firms in different sectors (such as manufacturing, transport and professional services) will be analysed in cross-national settings in order to understand national differences and how to manage in cross-cultural environments.

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.

On the MSc International Management (Human Resource Management) course you will develop an understanding of a range of global businesses, their operations, and the cultural differences you will meet in the practice of international management. You will study the various business functions, such as marketing, finance and strategy, taking into account global environmental factors (economic, political and social) in which international organisations operate. You will also develop a specialism in key areas of Human Resource Management; the business function which many would argue is the most important in the sense that it delivers to the organisation the human resource without which nothing would be achieved.

One of the big differences on this course is the focus on acquiring the skills you will need to work in international organisations. You will learn about a range of international organisations and develop your general management skills and intercultural management skills. You will develop your specific Human Resources Management skills in this same international context. You will gain practical experience by working on a live consultancy project for a commercial or not-for-profit organisation and have the opportunity to take part in field trips to study organisations in other countries.

With this master's degree, graduates go on to successful international careers with a range of commercial and not-for-profit organisations around the world.

Introduction

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, participatory 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 Management School has associated PhDs including those funded by ESRC/Skills Development Scotland.

Key information

- Degree type: Postgraduate Diploma, MSc
- Study methods: Full-time
- Duration: MSc: one year; Diploma: 9 months

Course objectives

This course provides a critical and academic assessment of the Human Resource Management (HRM) approach and its application by employers in international contexts. Particular attention is paid to understanding issues of responsibility and sustainability in HR management, as well as exploring the influence of various forms of business organisations on HR practices. Stirling Management School is committed to the principles of the PRIME* agenda, and the MSc International HRM reflects this engagement by integrating considerations of social responsibility and sustainability issues in the core curriculum.
The curriculum for the MSc International HRM builds on mainstream HRM scholarship to incorporate specialist topics which are regularly updated to ensure topicality and continued relevance. The course is taught from the Management, Work & Organisation Division, so students have access to specialists in a variety of fields.
The curriculum, and how it is delivered, is innovative and challenging for all students regardless of their academic background. The course uses a variety of assessment methods ranging from the more traditional examinations and essays, to formative assignments (short essays and group feedback).
The course seeks to provide recent graduates with a conceptual foundation for a career in the field of international human resource management or for further academic study in the subject, or to update the knowledge and qualifications of personnel/HR practitioners, managers and trade unionists. It will also provide you with a wider perspective on the principal issues and concerns affecting work and provide the basis for more effective decisions.

* PRiME stands for Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRiME). Its mission is to encourage responsible management education, research and thought-leadership globally. To this end, PRiME provides a voluntary engagement platform for business schools and management-related academic institutions.

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)

Graduating with an MSc in International HRM does not necessarily mean that you have to progress into a career in that field however. 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).
