The MSc International Business with Human Resource Management (HRM) consists of eight taught modules, Global Business in Context, International Finance, International Marketing, Managing and Leading People in International Organisations, International HRM, Global Strategy, Applied Research Methods, and International Entrepreneurship, and either a Dissertation or an Applied Research Project.
Successful completion of the eight taught modules will allow you to acquire mastery of both the macro and micro contexts of international business with a keener focus on a human resource management context. More specifically, you would enhance your ability to acquire, develop, and integrate international business theory whilst developing the skills to apply such theories in terms of international business practice and a greater appreciation of human resource management matters in international business.
Your final piece of work, either the Dissertation or Research Project, offers you the opportunity to investigate an area of human resource management relevant to international business. The Master's Dissertation option provides the opportunity to conceive, design and satisfactorily implement a substantial research project within the broad subject area of international business and HRM, whilst the Applied Research Project option enables students to apply the theoretical concepts encountered on the MSc International Business with HRM programme to an international business matter.
