Summary

The course focuses on strategic people management and development within an international organisational context, placing special emphasis on global employment issues, including national cultures, legislation and strategies. For example, we consider the role of HR professionals in managing skilled and unskilled migration and how this impacts on organisational effectiveness.

Our course team currently benefits from a close relationship with the CIPD, organising and hosting CIPD local branch events. Your programme of study currently reflects the CIPD’s current professional standards and expectations, which aims to broaden your awareness of HR generalist and specialist functions in an international context and provide you with the essential requirements needed to work within the broad context of international people management and development. Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further details.

We will aim to develop your strategic awareness of global business operations, for example, by considering how the individual goals and strategies of businesses drive their marketing, production, employee or customer orientation, as well as learning and development strategy. We will also look at how HR professionals can add value in organisations through ensuring cultural diversity through recruitment and selection practices or global talent management programmes.

You will have the chance to study a range of technical modules, such as HR Analytics and Managing Organisational Change Projects using project management, in addition to core HR accredited modules to help you achieve Associate CIPD membership, upon successful completion of the course. Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further details. We also ensure that you have the opportunity to gain a genuinely internationalised learning experience, so that you have the chance to develop your awareness of a range of international contexts. For instance, the ‘Comparative Global HRM’ module allows you to select two regions from four to compare HR practices, which should enable you to tailor your studies depending on your personal requirements and in line with your future career aspirations.

This course can be offered on a part-time basis, with study over two years. Whilst we would like to give you all the information about our part-time offering here, it is tailored for each course each year depending on the number of part-time applicants. Therefore, the part-time teaching arrangements vary. You can make an enquiry about part-time study using our online forms, for UK and for EU/International students.
