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.


The aim of the module is to build upon core theories and strategic practices discussed in Semester One HR916 HRM in a Business Context, by critically examining both HRM and HRD practices for building and managing productive, effective, and healthy workers. This module will utilise a central two-hour lecture to disseminate core knowledge and generate class discussion. On-line learning materials provide links to case studies and tasks which will be discussed in additional 1-hour seminars designed to engage student reflection on the class material.
