On Monday, our students got to meet their future tutors, the people who will be supporting them during the year to come by sharing their experience, guiding them as they develop their career plans and helping them gain a new perspective.

It was great to see the students of the three different MBAs mixing together. 

Thank you to the tutors for their dedication.

Joint case-based session with teaching partner KMBS

28 May 2021

Did you know that more than 80% of cross-border mergers fail to add value (KPMG) and top-managers lacking cross-cultural training are twice as likely to fail in international assignments? Understanding and managing the mutual impact of national and corporate culture during M&A process becomes paramount to ensuring the smooth integration of two (often rather different) businesses. On May 19th, in a joint case-based session, MBA students from the leading French companies worked on a case designed to prepare them for resolving cross-cultural dilemmas and prioritizing people and process matters during M&A. Within the framework of the 3-year-long partnership between Institut Magellan and Kyiv-Mohyla Business School, the session was conducted by Jose-Maria Aulotte (Program Director MBA International Human Resources, Institut Magellan), Bertrand Coutier (former Vice-President HR International Mobility and Governance, Airbus Helicopters), and Maryna Starodubska (KMBS Adjunct Professor, TLFRD Managing Partner). 

This year, the discussion was focused on understanding how national cultures manifest in corporate context using a real-life case of a Ukrainian company acquired by a French corporation and deciding which integration strategy to use: co-existence without control, assimilation, mixing or partnership. Among the key outtakes of the session were the 5 prerequisites of credibility in a cross-border M&A: (1) alignment of strategy and shareholder expectations; (2) agility on all integration levels; (3) HR-strategy appropriated by employees; (4) cascading of goals and priorities; (5) measurement of progress.

The Institut Magellan is an International HRM-focused business school, started by the Cercle Magellan – a professional network of over 250 multinational corporations bringing together ~1500 HR-professionals in France and dozens of other countries.

Exchanging and looking to the future with our Indian teaching partner

22 January 2021

As part of our partnership with Xavier Institute in Bhubaneswar, India, José-Maria Aulotte, director of the MBA in Human Resources Management in International Companies, was invited by the students on this prestigious institute’s international relations committee to exchange with practitioners and academics from various regions and functions.

The debate was lively despite taking place remotely, and centered on the new challenges that await managers after the current crisis. It was an opportunity to discuss inter-cultural issues, what companies and employees expect from managers, the impact of new technologies and the role of the HR function in support of these transformations.

Welcome to the class of 2021!

04 October 2020

Our students return from new york

15 May 2019

Next stop America… First Singapore, then Rio de Janeiro, and now New York. Two of our MBA classes headed across the Atlantic to find out more about Human Resources Management in the USA.                                       

The USA has a more formal legal framework than we might imagine: there are often differences between states, it is home to innovative Comp & Ben practices, and is working to respond to the expectations of the younger generations. All this and more was on the menu during four days packed with presentations, round tables and a visit to the Willis Towers Watson HQ.

Our students return from Rio

04 April 2019

To gain a better understanding of the problematics of international mobility and of HR issues more generally in this high potential, yet highly challenging country, was the objective of the 15 students on our specialized MBAs in International Mobility and International HR during their recent visit to Rio de Janeiro.

To achieve their goal, they attended a series of talks and meetings with HR professionals, operational managers and consultants as well as making a fascinating visit to Michelin’s industrial site at Campo Grande! Free time was put to good use to discover as fully as possible the Cidade Maravilhosa…all within reason, of course!

2018 student-company reception

10 October 2018

The meeting concluded with a cocktail reception to allow all involved to get to know each other better.

Welcome to the class of 2018-2019!

OUR STUDENTS ARE BACK FROM NEW YORK

15 May 2018

After their seminars in Rio and Singapore, our students headed off to New York in May for a week-long seminar combining presentations from experts in the field, meetings with former students living in New York and round tables on HR management and practices in the US.

New partnership with Rome Business School

18 April  2018

All roads lead to Rome… this old expression has become particularly significant for Magellan in the last few weeks because our first contact with the Rome Business School (RBS) was made via Prague. Keen to ensure that their MBA students learn about HR issues on their learning expedition to Paris, staff from this prestigious Italian business school contacted a specialist center in Czech Republic to find speakers! A combination of old acquaintances and of the Magellan Institute’s reputation led to the visit of a group of students of some 10 nationalities to our premises on a snowy day at the start of February.  

It was clear from the end of the meeting that a partnership would make sense, and a few weeks later an agreement was signed, bringing RBS into the Magellan partner network along with business schools in Ukraine, India, Senegal and Morocco. This agreement applies especially to RBS’s International HR Management master’s, and allows students of both establishments to benefit from staff exchanges, shared projects, etc., just like those that already take place in our network. 

Benvenuto!

Testimonial from an Indian student just back from Singapore

09 February 2018

Last January Anudrutta Fouzdar, Chetan Dubey and I, students of MBA – HRM of Xavier University Bhubaneshwar got the opportunity to visit Singapore for an HR conference through our International Relations Committee. It was a conference being conducted for the students of Magellan Institute pursuing MBA in International HR management. (The Magellan Institute, based in Paris, France has entered two years ago into an official partnership with XIMB).

The three of us belong to different professional backgrounds and thus could exchange our diverse experience and relate to HR and its practices in different industries. While Anudrutta has worked for a media advertising firm, Chetan, an engineer by profession, has an experience in Industrial Relations. I, on the other hand, have pursued Bachelors in Management Studies and worked in a Transaction Advisory firm as an Analyst. 

The areas of Human Resource Management that we covered over the 4-day long conference were: HR Practices in Asia, Global Learning and Development Management, Compensation trends in APAC, Immigration and relocation in Singapore and management of a Global Employment Company. The discussions were highly engaging and gave us a plethora of practical knowledge about how HRM is practiced in the world around us. The practical knowledge was a lot easier to follow and understand due to a strong theoretical base that we have built up over the past year at Xavier University Bhubaneshwar. 

We also came to know about the similarities and differences that exist between Indian and French practices and the way they are perceived in their respective societies. 

Each of the speakers came from a diverse background, not only in terms of their nationality but also from diverse industries. This gave us an interesting perspective to the challenges faced by each industry in different countries and how we as future HR managers are supposed to design the solutions. 

The visit to Schneider Electric’s plant in Indonesia added a new lens to our vision of how a factory operates. We were given the freedom to ask many questions to the staff in the factory. The staff was also glad to answer our queries.
