Modules

This module has two components: the first component will explore the way that people behave and interact in organisations. This section of the module aims to critically develop student knowledge in the fundamental theoretical and practical issues to do with the management of organisations. The student will understand how organisations are structured, how they function and how people behave in organisations. This introductory material will provide the behavioural aspects underpinning HRM, which constitutes the second section of the module. The aim of the HRM component is to provide an introduction to the main HR functions and to place them in the context of important new HR developments - academic and professional - that have occurred in the last decade. The coverage is mainly concerned with large multinational organisations and will include the analysis of both the strategic and operational problems of delivering successful HRM policies in an International context.
