A uniquely international outlook

International human resources professionals and the four rich and complex occupations for which we train them stand at the crossroads of legal, tax, financial and employment issues faced by companies around the world.

Our Specialized MBAs all include this global and international dimension thanks to:
>  a universal approach to topics: our graduates go on to work around the world
> numerous classes, round tables and specialized case studies in English: our students’
working language
> group projects on different countries or geographical areas
> learning expeditions to strategic regions
> an international qualification: MBAs are globally recognized

Learning expeditions

New York, Rio de Janeiro and Singapore

Our learning expeditions are an integral part of the course. They are intended to tackle the specifics and typologies of different regions/countries. They constitute a highly beneficial and valuable aspect of our programs.

Run by high-level professionals, each four- to five-day learning expedition presents the economic and employment context, cultural dimensions, and the different approaches and practices to human resources management and our specializations. They are also an opportunity to meet the directors of subsidiaries, local and regional HR directors, compensation & benefits managers, lawyers and specialists, not to mention expatriates and their partners.

Company visits abroad

Our learning expeditions to Singapore and Rio often include company visits, usually Schneider Electric and Michelin. These visits allow participants to gain a better understanding of industry and of human resources management in an international group. This comes through meetings with site directors, HR directors, production managers, etc.

Use of English

Our graduates make use of English on a daily basis. Companies also require knowledge of English for internships and as a pre-requisite for recruitment in our occupations. Our teaching methods require, like in companies, regular use of English in classes, round tables, exams, seminars, etc.

English is therefore essential and we ensure that our students have operational knowledge of English upon admission to our programs. Technical and HR language is, however, taught during the course.

Educational partnerships with foreign universities and establishments

Firmly focused on international concerns, the Magellan Institute has international educational partnerships in Asia, Africa and Europe. Through these partnerships, our participants and students take part in seminars with foreign teaching staff, as well as working with them and their students on case studies.
