What is the purpose of this international HRM Master? It aims to train human project leaders to work in an English and multicultural context – in France or/and abroad – for small and medium sized import / export companies or major international groups.

Tailor-made for future Executives in international businesses, the program was created in collaboration with IHRM professionals.

It is aimed at students wishing to pursue an international management career in a global context. It develops a wide range of up-to-date skills in social innovation and in HRM. The program will concentrate on the key role of HRM project management in an international context.

In order to better meet international students’ expectations, IGR-IAE Rennes now offers two-year English-taught programs. This new timeframe will give students more time to learn about France and French people, and to work in the context of French or France-based companies during the two internship periods included in the program. These full-time programs are taught 100% in English in our premises located next to Rennes’ city center.

The Master IHRM will be organized as follows:

Master 1:  two full semesters from October to March with a specialization in international human resources management and interaction with students from the other Masters in English. Optional internship or work experience is possible from April to September
Master 2: Master 2 IHRM program, with classes from October to January + 4 to 6 months of mandatory work experience or internship from February to September.

Four key managerial skills will be developed:

  • understanding the international and multicultural management context;
  • acquiring specific knowledge essential to work in HRM in an international context : talent management, compensation and benefits, mobility management;
  • leading change management, team-work, psychological well being, HRM project management ;
  • extending their international network, and working with people from different nationalities and cultures who share the same interest in international HRM.

One of the highlights of this program is to combine a comprehensive academic program, in international HRM with intensive French language courses (250 hours).

Classes are taught by French and international researchers associated with practitioners who are all experts in Social Innovations and Human Resources Management. All the courses are designed to be organized with small group dynamics: case studies, role playing and management problem solving.
