Contact Hours / Week:
International HRM provides an introduction to the critical issues facing organizations in simultaneously managing their human resources at home and abroad. This is particularly true of multinational enterprises (MNEs) and transnational corporations (TCs) intricately involved in a global environment. We begin the course with an exploration of global leadership and teamwork, in order to help us cope with the unexpected. Then we will become familiar with two International HRM frameworks, noting their advantages and limitations. Because the impact of culture is substantial when working with staff from different countries, we will also dedicate time to an understanding of culture in theoretical and practical terms.
We will subsequently turn our attention to a general exploration of the nation state and the economic integration realities that impact policies and activities of corporations worldwide. Then, following a principally functional approach, we will review specific cases of planning, staffing, appraising, training and development, and compensation practices in various countries.
