”I studied law, and already had some 20 years’ experience in human resources in major international companies such as Schlumberger, Areva T&D and Alstom Grid when I joined the MBA class of 2017. This year of learning, sharing and exchange allowed me to reinforce and consolidate my knowledge of international human resources. I also gained new knowledge and skills in C&B, notably in management of short- and long-term compensation policy and in introducing a means of monitoring the wage bill. The course and the strength of the Magellan network offered me a new challenge just a few weeks after I obtained the qualification, through my current role.”

Specialized MBA in International Human Resources and Compensation & Benefits Management 2016-2017

“I enrolled in the MBA in International HR and Compensation & Benefits to boost my career following a skills assessment. My
career change has been a success thanks to a varied teaching staff made up of professionals who were able to share their
technical know-how and their vision of the fascinating world of comp & ben. The combination of lectures, case studies and
round tables allows everyone to get to grips with the course content and choose their path depending on their priorities,
affinities and career objectives. The course content, along with my prior work experience, meant that I was operational
immediately, from the first day of my internship. In addition, this course stands out from the rest in the sense that it encourages
participants to work together and share practical information, all in a supportive atmosphere.”

Specialized MBA in International Human Resources and Compensation & Benefits Management 2016-2017

”After business school in France and Canada, I wanted to orient my career towards HR. I took the opportunity to join a
recruitment firm specializing in sales and marketing positions. This experience confirmed my interest in HR. So after a twoyear
expatriation in Central Asia I chose the Magellan Institute’s MBA in HR Management in International Companies as I
was looking for an international course that would prepare me for the world of work, was of a high-level and that had strong
links with companies. This year, my studies have allowed me to make my career plans a reality. All the speakers shared their
knowledge, and their concerns, with great generosity. My internship allowed me to put my learning into practice, building on
my capacity in numerous areas.”

International Talent Development Manager Moët Hennessy – LVMH

Specialized MBA in Human Resources Management in International Companies 2015-2016

”After 10 years’ work experience, including four years spent as an expatriate in the UK, I was looking to build on my knowledge of human resources, and in particular of compensation and benefits. In the year I spent on the MBA IHR C&B, the highlights were the people, the excellent quality of the teaching and an extremely enriching ability to gain perspective. The Magellan Institute/ENS Paris-Saclay MBA IHR C&B thus gave me the capacity to approach cross-cutting human resources issues and helps me in my day-to-day work in understanding the strategic challenges of compensation and benefits in Europe and internationally. I had barely graduated when I was offered the opportunity to manage total rewards development in EMEA/APAC.”

”A year filled with enriching professional and personal encounters, which allows participants to gain a full outlook of the world
through learning expeditions and multicultural classes. Thanks to the theoretical and practical sides of the course, taught
by professionals, the Specialized MBA in international mobility allowed me to be operational from my first days in-company.
Through the testimonials and tools presented in class, I was also able to offer real added-value to the company where I was
interning right from the start. After the course, close links to the Magellan Network, which brings together international mobility
managers from the largest international groups, allow you to keep up with changes in the field and to build bridges with the
profession as a whole.”

”Having trained as an engineer and having moved into HR when I was working in the UK, I wanted to consolidate the knowledge of HR I had gained on the ground and develop expertise in international mobility. The MBA brought me the necessary knowledge to give my move from engineering to HR credibility on the French market. During the course gained the essential technical and practical competencies for international mobility. I have built my network and sharpened my awareness of international HR issues in varied contexts. The year of training coincided with my return to France and was a real launch pad for my integration. The MBA allowed me to meet a range of passionate and fascinating professionals, I made solid friendships and immediately found a job that was right for me.”

Specialized MBA in Human Resources and International Mobility Management 2013-2014

“I was an information systems engineer and wished to make a career change to the HR function, while still working internationally.
I wanted to be operational quickly, yet have a solid technical grounding. That was why I chose the Magellan Institute, which
also offered an opportunity to learn as part of a class made up of a diverse variety of profiles, which was very interesting. The
course structure, the teaching and the solid reputation of the MBA meant that I was able to obtain a job before the end of my
internship. Ten years later, I have achieved my goal of spending time in Japan and today I lead the C&B team of a multinational
company. Without a doubt, the standard of the teaching staff, the very effective teaching approach and the quality of the
professional network make this MBA a real career booster.”
