Course summary

Programme description

Managing human resources is a key area of business and management. Globalisation and the changing economic, demographic, and political landscape means that what constitutes effective HRM and how it may best be practiced is constantly evolving and increasingly requires an international orientation. The University of Edinburgh Business School’s MSc in International HRM is at the forefront of research-led, practically and theoretically-informed management education.

The programme provides a combination of courses to enable the professional development of future HR practitioners, capable of operating across national borders. The programme combines the latest theory and research with the development of practical skills and opportunities for the application of knowledge to real-life, international HR issues.

The programme provides courses that will enable the professional development of future international HR managers. These courses combine theoretical and research-based insights with practical skills and provide opportunities for the application of this knowledge to real-life HR issues.
