Human resources in an international context

International companies are subject to strong competition. The new global economic status quo is leading them to seek growth areas in other developed countries and in emerging countries. In addition, they are also localizing their decisionmaking and production centers to be closer to their markets. In this context, good management of human resources worldwide constitutes a key success factor. As such, the concepts of global talent management and human capital have spread rapidly. While local personnel management is often the responsibility of local employees, regional and global HR issues are important, as is the management of international projects (setup of subsidiaries for example).

Four HR environments where such roles exist:
• General HR management in a company with an international presence
• International HR managers (HR directors of international, entities, regional HR directors, global HR directors for a certain occupation, etc.)
• Global or regional HR managers for learning & development, school relations, etc.
• Consultant in global HR, talent management, etc.

Therefore, international HR managers must have particular aptitudes, knowledge and competencies (business approach, finance, HR strategy, methods and processes, techniques,
regional practices, etc.) and must be open and operational internationally.
Complementing the core program for all three of our HR MBAs, this high-level specialized course provides a grounding in three dimensions: abilities, knowledge and competencies.

A large number of teaching modules and case studies are taught in English.
