This CIPD accredited course is designed specifically for those who want to pursue global careers in HRM, and should cover the essential theoretical knowledge, intellectual frameworks and practical skills required by today’s employers in a range of international business contexts (please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further details). Upon successful completion, you should gain an understanding of the key theories in HRM and an in-depth knowledge of country-specific practices and international HR issues, as well as the real-world experience and skills needed to operate across national borders as an HR professional.

You will be taught in an internationally diverse environment, with students on this course typically being drawn from countries around the world, allowing you the opportunity to develop global professional networks and a greater understanding of working in multi-national teams.

This course is accredited and recognised by the following bodies: Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) & Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Organisations in every area, in every country should have a HR department, so upon successful completion of this course, having the experience and these essential skills could lead to you working within one of those departments, regardless of whether you work as a generalist or a specialist with particular expertise in one area of HR.

Opportunities now exist to explore HR in numerous sectors and at many different levels, covering everything from training and recruitment, pensions, compensation, benefits, and payroll and redundancy to implementing employment law and relocation packages.

Upon successful completion, you should gain a clear understanding of a broad range of HR, managerial and business principles, practices and competencies in different regions of the world. You should develop specialist technical competence, strong analytical and problem-solving skills in managing organisational change and in HR analytics.

There will be opportunities to work with employers on problem-based assessments and you will have the opportunity to gain experience producing policy documents relevant to the changing world of work.
