Teaching

Code Course Role Duration
IRHR3540 International Human Resource Management
Newcastle Business School | University of Newcastle
The course aims to develop a critical understanding of the role and functions of the various human resource activities within multinational corporations (MNC). It provides an overview of the impact of globalisation and varieties of capitalism in shaping international human resource management practices in MNCs. In doing so, the course addresses the literature in international human resource management (IHRM) and the strategic management of human resources in MNCs. The field of IHRM is a relatively new area of academic/professional interest and the course will draw on case studies and selected readings. Case studies will be used to expose students to the various human resource management issues in the management of people in MNCs in an international context.

IRHR2270 Introduction to Human Resource Management
Newcastle Business School | University of Newcastle
Human Resource Management links people related activities to business strategy. The course develops a critical understanding of the role and functions of the various human resource activities in an organisation, providing students with a comprehensive review of key HRM concepts, techniques and issues. Topics include job analysis and design, recruitment and selection, evaluation, performance management, occupational health and safety, and the strategic contribution of HRM to organisational performance and evaluating HRM effectiveness. Working with contemporary case studies, students not only engage in collaborative and individual work processes but use communication and discourse characteristic of the HRM context and environment.
