The purpose of this course is to provide a global perspective to students pursuing an MPS degree in Human Resources and Employment Relations. The course will give insight into the Human Resource and Employment Relations practices in Ireland, a country that is a member of the European Union. It is also a location where several prominent U.S. companies have built and manage facilities (e.g., Dell, Pfizer, Google, Hewlett Packard, Facebook, Johnson and Johnson).
This will be our second time offering an embedded course with travel to Ireland. We have an MOU in place with the University of Limerick and have connections with several companies. Students will conduct work online five weeks prior to the travel abroad. During the week in Ireland, students will participate in classes at the University of Limerick, visit companies to learn about their HR practices and challenges, and take part in cultural/sightseeing activities. Upon their return, students will write a final essay based on a topic the class will choose to write about before leaving Ireland.
Upon return from the abroad experience, students completed the course by submitting a final paper. This embedded course proposal with travel to Zagreb is identical in structure. This course will be an option for online graduate students seeking to complement their online degree with an international experience.
The course also is consistent with LER's strategic objectives, one of which is to increase global awareness and involvement of our students.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel overnight accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students will be asked to submit a short essay that details how the student would benefit professional and personally from this experience.
