Course Summary

Overview

This is a potential research degree area, subject to the approval of the University. If you are interested in undertaking a research degree in this area.

This research area covers the theoretical underpinnings and the practical implications of international approaches, models and regulations of managing people in a global context. Topics include the analysis of the relationship between national culture, organisational behaviour and management practice; the comparative analysis of the main policies and practices by which international organisations, mainly multinational companies (MNCs), manage their human resources in different countries; and the evaluation of contemporary issues and the future directions of international HRM, their implications and ways of dealing with them in an international labour market. It also includes topics that are related to international recruitment and selection; international training and development; international rewards and remuneration; and international employee relations.

A research degree at Abertay is excellent preparation for a career as a researcher and an academic, as well as a diverse range of professions outside of academia, for example, in consultancy work.

Our research degrees

You have the option of studying an MSc by Research, an MPhil or a PhD.

When deciding which degree is right for you, you should consider the level of commitment required, the duration, cost and your career aspirations.

That being said, our research degrees are flexible. You can begin an MSc or an MPhil and then seek to transfer to a PhD without having to start your project all over again. You can also switch from full-time to part-time study, and vice versa.

MPhil

The award of Master of Philosophy demonstrates a systematic understanding of knowledge and a critical awareness of current problems and/or the application of original thought, much of which is at (or informed by) the forefront of your field of study or area of professional practice.
