About us

Magellan Institute: training from the Magellan Network

The Magellan Institute was started by the Magellan Network, a professional network of over 200 large multinational companies, bringing together almost 2,000 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 Magellan Institute’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.


Several of our Specialized MBAs were originally coordinated by the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan (1995-2004), then by the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers (2004-2014), under the supervision of Yves Girouard, director of the Magellan Institute, in order to meet companies’ need for experts in these fields. The importance of this training for companies in light of their skills needs in the specializations concerned led them to take charge of it directly through the Magellan Institute, the latter having existing expertise in this field.

Solid support from companies and consultants

Run by the Magellan Network, a networking group for professionals, the Magellan Institute’s Specialized MBAs enjoy the support and solid recognition of numerous companies and expert consultancies. Companies’ involvement extends to contributing teaching staff, and to participation in conferences and international seminars, in the advisory board, and in oral examination panels.

These companies and consultancies also welcome our students for site visits and placements in-company, and are major employers of our graduates for both their internships and their future careers.
