The following topics are covered in class:

- Introduction and overview
- Global Labor Market
- IHRM and Strategy
- Global HR Planning
- Global Staffing
- Global Training and Development
- International Assignments 
- Global Compensation

Learning outcomes

Aims and objectives
a) to review basic approaches to IHRM by studying the exam text
b) to assess theory and current practices in selection, performance management, development and compensation of staff for international work
c) to assess trends and influences on the use of global workforce in international assignments and virtual work groups.

Teaching/learning method(s)

The course includes three types of study processes. The exam requires students to learn information about several aspects of IHRM from the textbook. The group assignments require students to read more widely about the topics, to reflect on and to critically evaluate contemporary ideas from business and individual perspectives. Class sessions provide an opportunity for input by the class teacher and for students to learn from each other, and to debate the IHRM.
