|Course Format||Lecture 4.0 h + Seminar 0.0 h + Lab. 0.0 h|
The challenge of globalization and people management increases the demand for human resource leaders and practitioners to expand and develop their knowledge, skill, and expertise in the field. This course introduces students to the perspective of International Human Resource Management (IHRM) and its purpose, function, and role in international business. Key topics include the management world in the 21st century and defining IHRM; cultural factors that influence international management; economic development and international management; motivation, leadership and IHRM strategy, function and practice in the cross-national context; the expatriate experience; and special issues and best practices in IHRM.
A cornerstone of this course is the development of a global mindset and perspective. Learners will work in groups to identify and consider international issues from a variety of viewpoints, including stakeholder groups (e.g. managers, HRM practitioners, employees) and specific cultures and countries.
