International Program

The International Program mission at CMMU is to produce students who are more self-confident to work in a complex global business world.


CMMU’s Master in Leadership and Human Resource Management (LHR) is the first international Master Degree Program in people management offered in Thailand. It differs from the “people processing” approach to HR traditionally taught and practiced. Instead, we develop graduates who possess business acumen and therefore can fulfill a leadership role for people management in Asia’s private and public sector organizations.

Our students learn how successful enterprises manage human resources in order to create value. The program provides an applied understanding of how successful businesses operate through people, corporate culture, and organizational structure to create high performing organizations. In particular, our internationally regarded HR Consulting Practice course is unique in Asia. This major will equip you with practical experience and insights into how to develop a high performing workforce in Asia and globally.

    • Corporate Strategy and Performance Measurement

      Organizations are operating in competitive and rapidly changing market conditions. As a result, strategy formulation, and particularly strategy implementation, are increasingly complex and challenging. This course addresses the development of corporate strategy. It also discusses the Balanced Scorecard as a strategy implementation tool and as an effective means for measuring the organizations's progress towards achieving strategic goals.

      Human Resource Information System

      This course provides students with an understanding of Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS), and how they support management of human resources in organizations. Students learn a theoretical framework to understand systems design issues, analyze needs, select software, and implement an HRIS.

      Learning and Development

      Human resource is the most valuable asset of an organization. Without skilled and knowledgeable employees with positive attitude, it is almost impossible for the organization to maintain its competitive edge and to prosper. The organization needs to provide on-going learning and development to their employees so that their skills and knowledge will not become obsolete and to prevent them from turning into a dinosaur.

      In this course, students will realize the importance of learning and development and its impact on managing an organization. They will also have the opportunity to go through the whole process of training development for staff, e.g. Training Needs Assessment, Training Design, Training Delivery, Evaluation and Follow-up. In addition, an individualized staff development will also be discussed.

      Project Management

      Project management is an essential skill for modern managers operating in a dynamic environment where change is achieved through project implementation. The Project Management course explores all aspects of project management throughout the entire cycle including activities in selection, definition, initiation, planning, execution, monitoring, control, completion, and post-implementation review. Students use a project management information system to support their project management activities. On completion students have developed an understanding of project management and have acquired practical experience of the entire project cycle.

      Soft-skills Development

      How many times have we heard a sentence like this, “He is a good manager, but his people skill is so bad!”? To be effective, a manager not only has to be able to handle his technical domain tasks successfully, but also to handle people matters successfully. This is because a manager gets a job done through people.

      In this course, students will be able to understand the significance of Soft Skills in the work context and to develop their soft skills through various class activities which are especially designed for participants in a managerial role. These activities provide the opportunity for students to develop such soft skills as Active Listening and Communication, Coaching, Facilitation, Transferring Knowledge, etc.

      Strategic Human Resource Management

      This course is about the design and implementation of human resource strategies. It comprises two key components: (1) How to think strategically about aspects of managing people; and (2) What need to be done to implement HR policies and practices in order to achieve and sustain competitive advantage. The course also deals with the people consequences of strategic change such as HR due diligence and post-merger HR transition management. It adopts the perspective of a general manager, and is designed to be integrative, drawing upon fundamental knowledge that students have gained in other HR subjects.
