Meet the Programme Director – Masters in International HR

In this blog, I am going to introduce the Programme Director of IHRM and HRM, Dr. Thomas (Tom) Calvard. Tom, who has a Doctorate in Organisational Psychology and is also a lecturer in HRM, speaks about the initial days of the programme and how it has grown to what it is today; his take on the relevance of international HRM in today’s world; and shares a small message for the students who wish to join the programme next year.

Time flies: end of semester 1 (a review)

It was 10th of September when I first met my classmates in the Business School, and it was 4th of December when we celebrated together with a Semester-end dinner. It is difficult to express how quickly these months have passed. With all new these people around, I never thought that I would be able to adjust into my new surroundings so easily, but with each passing day things have only gotten better.

International voices from our Masters programmes

It’s been a month since I started my journey at the Business School, and in that time it has been really exciting to talk to my classmates who come from different countries and professional backgrounds. In this blog, I would like to introduce you to three of my classmates on the International HR programme, to share their experiences of the University of Edinburgh.
