Programme structure

The curriculum is built around two compulsory courses and a dissertation.

Students also customise their programme according to their own interests and career goals, and benefit from a truly interdisciplinary learning experience, by choosing optional elective courses to the value of two units from a range of world-leading academic departments across the LSE. These optional courses allow students to apply insights from psychology, sociology, comparative politics, and law to analysing human resource policy and the employment relationship.

Programme structure:


Compulsory courses

  • International Employment Relations (0.5 unit) introduces students to different employment relations systems in North America, Europe, and Asia, examining the causes of these national differences and their consequences for employees and firms.
  • Globalisation and Human Resource Management (0.5 unit) focuses on the strategic challenges global corporations face in managing human resources across national and organisational boundaries, and the ways in which diverse stakeholders influence these strategies.
  • Dissertation and Project Lectures (1.0 unit)
