International and Comparative Human Resource Management (HRMM060)

The internationalisation of markets/economies has been accompanied by increased emphasis on international perspectives in Human Resouce Management (HRM) by reducing labour costs, improving product quality and developing organisational flexibility.  The growth of organisations operating across national boundaries has raised issues related to HR strategy and practice within those organisations. This module explores the complex cultural, social, economic and institutional environments within which organisations have to compete and the implications for effective people management and HR practice.

Careers

Career Opportunities

MSc Management aims to develop the managers of the future by providing a level of education to those seeking a generalist, broadly based management qualification. This programme is particularly relevant to those without a business background (either academic or employment) who have not previously committed to a specific/specialist career path.

The specialist pathways are designed to provide more focussed routes for those who have more clearly defined career aspirations while still seeking to develop knowledge and skills in a broad range of business and management disciplines.
