This MSc in International Human Resource Management is suitable for those with an interest in global employment issues.

As part of your studies, you will analyse the impact of different national and institutional contexts on firm structures, innovation processes and work organisation.

This course is subject to validation.


Students will have approximately 12 contact hours per week.

Teaching will include a variety of guest lectures from industry leaders and professional bodies. The course will include a variety of opportunities for students to engage with the world of work, including live projects and guest lectures delivered by representatives from industry, the public sector and professional accounting/management organisations.
