International Human Resources Management MSc

Course Introduction

Overview

This course is designed for graduates of any discipline who intend to develop a career in global business using people management skills. You'll learn about key aspects of international trends and critical issues influencing global employment practices. A distinctive feature of the programme is the varied background of the class, with students from several international countries (including students from two collaborating institutions in Europe), which enhances the opportunities for networking and cross-cultural learning.

Employability

The course provides a good grounding in HR issues, theories and practice and several modules are based on international professional standards. Successful students can enter a variety of HR roles, particularly the international market or within multinational companies in their country of practice. Many students on this course are from overseas wishing to gain a UK Masters level degree in international HR which they can then utilise back in their country of origin or to further an international career. The course also attracts a number of UK students wishing to specialise in international human resource management.

Placements

Course members will be offered the opportunity to liaise with our professional placement staff in order to secure a work placement attached to an HR department of a London-based organisation. A placement can provide you with an organisational context for learning, giving you the opportunity to become involved in short projects/process tasks in HR, and could also be a valuable source for your dissertation.

Teaching and learning

A distinctive feature of the full-time programme is that for half of the modules students will share classes with practising HR professionals following the part-time Masters route. These students, typically aged 25 - 35, work in HR departments in London while studying for the professional CIPD qualification. This exposure will considerably enhance your learning experience.
