Summary

Overview If you're working in HR and ready to make an ambitious next move in your career, our MSc International Human Resource Management degree course will develop your knowledge and skills to Master's level and help you stand out from the competition.

On this course, you'll improve your knowledge of HR in an international context. You'll learn about the globalisation of business and its effect on the HR industry, and explore why HR measures that are effective in one country can fail in another, even within the same organisation.

When you graduate, you'll have the skills to manage people across borders, and to handle cross-cultural issues in international HR. And because these skills are in demand in the HR industry and beyond, you'll be ready to advance your career in business development, recruitment, or training and development.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Graduates are entitled to apply for Associate membership of the CIPD
