The objective of this course is to analyze HRM in multinational firms. It presents the role to be played by HRM in the internationalization process. Beyond the analysis of International Human Resources Management (IHRM) tools, this course enables students to better understand the social and cultural contexts that allow / limit the effectiveness of HR policies.

The course articulates a presentation of concepts in International Human Resources Management and considerations on their implementation in real cases. Students will therefore be systematically invited to establish a link between concepts and organizational practices. Traditional private companies but also non-profit organizations will be taken as examples.



Deep knowledge in organizations and HR policies is required to fully enjoy this course.
