Course summary


The International Human Resource Management MSc is a fully online, part-time programme designed to equip managers, HR professionals and those seeking a career in HR with the intellectual, learning and professional skills they need to make an outstanding contribution within their organisation. The University of Liverpool Management School is one of an elite group of institutions worldwide to hold a gold standard triple accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. The programme will assist in developing important senior management skills, including strategic thinking, evidence-based decision making and practical skills, that can help take you to the next career level.

In a dynamic, fast-changing and diverse environment, managing people requires practitioners who can continually learn and adapt professional and organisational knowledge to new needs and contexts. Organisations of all sizes, whether global or local, increasingly need to be able to operate in an international and globalised environment and be able to effectively manage and develop people within such an environment.

The curriculum blends core HRM skills such as managing performance, learning and development, change and conflict, with core business skills which are tailored to the needs of HR practice, including leadership, data and financial management, marketing and business ethics, sustainability, and CSR.

The programme will consider the international dimensions and implications of all core HRM practices and their impact on business functions, including the complexities of managing people across multiple countries, legislative frameworks and cultures, management of expat staff and workforce diversity.

Students will be able to combine a focus on practice, with their current or previous workplace and organisational experience and the critical management scholarship of an elite AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS accredited Management School.
