This course provides an understanding of the role of human resource management (HRM) in international contexts. The course is divided into three areas of study: the context of international HRM, strategic and functional HRM in international contexts, and comparative international contexts. Specific topics include globalisation, work and labour regulation; strategic HRM issues in international contexts; issues related to host, home and third country nationals; recruitment, selection, training, development and compensation in international contexts, expatriation and repatriation. Studies of the HR context of selected countries are also included.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of the issues, opportunities and challenges pertaining to international HRM;
- Develop competency in dealing with cross cultural situations;
- Demonstrate an understanding of the strategic and functional roles of HRM in various international contexts, specially in areas such as recruitment and selection, performance management, training, learning and development, career management, compensation, motivation and repatriation;
- Demonstrate an understanding of the external forces (e.g. globalisation, sociocultural changes, political and economic changes) that have the potential to shape international HRM; and,
- Develop generic and transferable skills-especially in diagnosing international HRM issues critically and analytically, conducting research for the purpose of discussing specific cases relating to international HRM, evaluating alternative approaches, and defending the recommendations with evidence.
- Typical assessments may include, but is not restricted to: in-class exercises, written and oral assignments, quizzes, examinations, group project tasks, oral presentation, and other assessment deemed appropriate to show attainment of the learning outcomes set for the course. Further details will be made available via the Class Summary. (100) [LO 1,2,3,4,5]
