Examines from both applied and theoretical perspectives the effect of national differences on the processes and systems associated with managing human resources across national boundaries, as in the case of multinational corporations. The opening topics look at the diverse ways to conceptualize cross-national differences and challenges facing the management of multinational firms. Other topics include: diverse indigenous HRM frameworks in Asian, European and emerging economies; the selection, preparation, training and management of expatriates, host-country nationals and third-country nationals for international assignments; transferring HR management systems across cultural boundaries; and corporate social responsibility challenges. Students are given the opportunity to enhance their skills in teamwork, organisational analysis, problem solving and strategic thinking - through case studies and seminars.
