INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

MGT3IHR

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

The phenomena of internationalisation and globalisation have substantial implications for the human resource management of organisations. In addition to broad strategic concerns, issues such as understanding and appreciating differences between local environments and international staff placement are complex and have far-reaching implications. Even organisations that choose not to operate across national boundaries are affected directly by internationalisation and globalisation. In this subject, you will build on knowledge acquired in the 'Human Resource Management' subject and apply this in an international context using both theoretical and applied approaches. Thereby, you will gain an understanding of the strategies and policies available to organisations in this increasingly important area.
