Course Summary

This course will help you to develop an understanding of how and why human resource policies and practices differ across the world. You will examine how international companies address these challenges.

It allows you to consider these issues critically and also encourages you to think more practically about the skills required to manage in an international context.

The programme allows you to work towards a professional level of membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

During the second semester, you will produce an integrated dissertation and research report based on analysing a human resource issue in an organisation.


The course modules are assessed by various methods which include essays, individual and group projects and final exams. The exams are generally held in December and April.


This class will provide you with the opportunity to explore patterns of labour mobility across nation states and how these have varied across space and time. A key focus will be on the issue of diversity management within and between nation states in an era of more integrated markets and the practical implications these have for managers working in different political and economic contexts.
