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.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Understand issues, opportunities and challenges pertaining to international HRM;
  2. Develop competency in dealing with cross cultural situations;
  3. Understand 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;
  4. Understand external forces (e.g. globalisation, sociocultural changes, political and economic changes) that have the potential to shape international HRM; and
  5. 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, and developing confidence in conducting training workshops.
