Course aim

This course provides students with theoretical and practical knowledge of:

  • The interconnections and relationships between organisational forms and human resource management. Globalization, entrepreneurship and the information age are driving radical shifts in organisational structures. Changing structures can impact on the organisations performance so the ways by which strategic human resource management may be understood and applied is important.
  • Different organisational structures and human resource theoretical frameworks and how changes to these can assist managers to improve organisational outcomes.

Students completing the course develop a body of knowledge that contributes to a comprehensive and integrated application of principles of organisational structures, staff perspectives and how these change in the field of senior organisational management and leadership in international business environments.
