This Masters programme is unique in its combination of theory and practice in the study of human resource management (HRM) within a global environment and builds on Henley Business School's reputation in the field of international business.
Emphasis is given to the understanding of both the discipline of HRM, the contextual environment in which organisations are increasingly operating and the management of multinational enterprises. You will develop a practical understanding of the range of challenges facing organisations in different environments, and at every level.
MSc International Human Resource Management provides a thorough grounding in the field of international business, as well as a specific focus upon the development of HRM into a strategic function and the growth of international HRM in recent years.
You will gain a comparative awareness of the various elements of HRM practice, including training and development; recruitment and selection; performance management and reward. You will also be equipped with a range of analysis and diagnostic tools to support your knowledge and understanding as well as having the opportunity to develop facilitation skills.
In addition to a strong grounding HRM and its background and strategic development, you will develop an awareness of how the field of international human resource management has developed in response to the increasingly globalised nature of our world. You will learn more about context and the challenges this poses for international managers and leaders as they strive to manage people. Optional modules examine areas including leadership and advanced business policy and comparative issues in international business.
You will complete a project in international human resource management as part of this programme. Projects are self-directed in their nature, but you will enjoy the chance to link with activities in the renowned Henley HR Centre of Excellence and possibly to gain project opportunities within a related organisation.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
You are expected to have obtained a UK upper second class honours degree, or the international equivalent. Students whose first language is not English are required to provide evidence of proficiency. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
