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.
Some of the first questions that I had when I applied to the University of Edinburgh Business School included, ‘how did previous students do?’ and ‘did they all get good jobs?’ We recently met with alumni from different graduating years to find out.
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.
Ethics, talent acquisition and employee electronic chips were the hot topics of the day!
