Institut Magellan: training from the Cercle Magellan

The Institut Magellan was started by the Cercle Magellan, a professional network of over 250 large multinational companies, bringing together almost 1,500 professionals from different HR specializations in France and around the world (international HR directors, international mobility managers, compensation & benefits managers and international talent managers).

The Institut Magellan’s role is to meet the needs of multinational companies by training professionals in areas of HR expertise in high demand on the job market.

It is a preferred center for continuing education for HR departments to meet immediate and long-term training needs, offering practical and operational training modules delivered by leading experts from the field. The synergies established between the network and our training courses allow us to offer programs that are always in step with constantly changing HR practices and companies’ needs.

“Globalization and changes to companies’ organization and ways of working have considerably enriched the roles of human resources professionals.

There is currently very high demand for expert professionals with an international outlook and a leaning towards compensation and benefits, international mobility and HR management control. Companies are also seeking well-prepared general HR professionals to practice their role at an international level, usually at head office.

Our Specialized MBAs meet these needs. They are professional by design and offer focused, practical, concrete teaching. The programs’ content and teaching methods are unique in Europe and have been updated each year for over 25 years, in line with companies’ needs. This is why they enjoy high employability.”
