The main objective of this course is to develop participants' understanding of the link between human resources and firm strategy in the international context. People are considered as one of the most, if not the most, important resource for the competitiveness of firms, and the challenge of effective HRM is greatest in multinational firms (MNCs) with operations in culturally and institutionally diverse environments. Students will learn about managing human capital globally in MNCs with the help of HRM practices such as global performance management and talent management, as well as how to enable value creation through the means of social architecture.
This course is a bachelor level version of the advanced level course Strategic International HRM (22034). Students cannot take them both.
