Overview

Overview

Our MSc in Global Human Resource Management takes an international approach, giving you a unique skill set to help you stand out from the competition as organisations increasingly expand across borders.

On this course, you’ll be introduced to key HR practices and will investigate the impact that the globalisation of businesses has had on the HRM industry. You'll explore why HR measures that are effective in one country can fail within another, even though they’re part of the same organisation.

On this practical course, you'll use case studies of real organisations to develop your knowledge, so you can immediately apply what you learn to your place of work. You’ll also have the option to develop a real HR action plan for your current organisation as your dissertation, which could help you land a promotion or new job.

You’ll leave this course with the practical skills necessary to effectively manage employees from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds. And because knowledge of the HR industry on a global scale is sought-after in the workplace, you’ll become a valuable asset to businesses around the world.

What you’ll study
