The challenge of effective HRM is greatest in multinational firms that operate in culturally and institutionally diverse environments, and the focus of the course is precisely on the international dimension of strategic HRM. The main objective of the course is that participants develop their understanding of the link between human resources and firm strategy in the international context. An additional objective is that they learn how to plan and implement effective learning sessions. The course will deal both with the latest research and with practical cases of (strategic) IHRM.

This course is the third in the People Management-track in Management and Organization, which consists of the following courses: 1) Leadership, 2) Gender, Management and Organisation, 3) Strategic International Human Resource Management and 4) Personnel Assessment.
