MNGT 3100/HRDV 9950 Issues in Human Resource Management: Global Talent Development– 3.0 credit hours
Professor: Anne Browning, GHW School of Business & Technology Department (Webster St. Louis)
Course Description: Though the costs of an international assignment are, on average, three to five times greater than a typical employee’s annual salary, few organizations use a consistent process to analyze the strategic impact of global mobility investments. According to a 2005-2006 Mercer Consulting International Assignments Study, many companies confirm that while they have a general understanding of their international assignment costs, only a few are able to measure the specific resulting value and ROI.
As a result, HR leaders are looking for better methods to demonstrate the business impact of well-managed international assignments. This course will review the key components that need to be addressed in order to construct and manage a successful global assignment throughout its lifecycle. Visits with professionals who manage, coordinate and experience international assignments in London will allow students a unique opportunity to see what works and what doesn’t. Students will explore Global Assignment management within the following three key principles:
· Financial measures: Determine the value of sending an employee on assignment and how to measure the ROI of the employee contribution.
· Strategic measures to determine who is on assignment, what they are there to accomplish and if they are meeting those goals.
· Best practices for the logistics and operationalization of successful global assignments.

Students in this program will live in either hotels or on a local university campus. More information to come
