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.

Introductions: the game of the name

Meeting new people is exciting. And you’ll meet lots of new people whose accomplishments will blow you away in your first weeks in Edinburgh. Everyone I’ve met seems to be trilingual and has completed double degrees and/or has come from an impressive career. I’m sure I will learn a lot from the diverse perspectives and experiences my fellow students will bring to the table this year.

Preparing our students for their future careers

As a prospective student, you will be keen to find out about the career support offered at the Business Schools you are interested in.  It’s an area we’ve invested in heavily in recent years, and with the creation of our dedicated Student Development Team, we offer a comprehensive programme of professional development throughout the academic year.
