2 Directors foreword Each year, our graduates are trained not only to cross academic frontiers, but also professional and geographical ones. CIFFOP offers three leading courses in human resources management: its original Masters degree, an international Masters degree, and a continuing education program offered in Paris and Luxembourg. CIFFOP is developing other future projects in its innovation lab: an international continuing education program, and new teaching modules addressing changes in business and public administration. These activities are the fruit of a unique collaboration, a committed team directing the Center on a day-to-day basis, the dedication of the teaching body, and the constant support offered by our tutors and professionals to students, as well as our increasingly strong alumni network. Finally, we must thank our partners, because it is together we can achieve progress in human relations, to bring out the best in business and professional life. Muriel de Fabrègues Frank Bournois

3 ABOUT CIFFOP 1 Frank BOURNOIS Professor of Management Panthéon-Assas Co-Director of CIFFOP Muriel de FABREGUES Associate Professor Panthéon-Assas Co-Director of CIFFOP & Co-Director of the Master program Yasmina JAIDI Associate Professor Panthéon-Assas Co-Director of the International Master program Jean-Michel OLIVIER Professor of Private Law Panthéon-Assas Co-Director of the Master program Jacques ROJOT Emeritus Professor Panthéon-Assas Co-Director of the Executive Master (Luxembourg) program Catherine VOYNNET FOURBOUL Associate Professor Panthéon-Assas Co-Director of the Executive Master (Paris) program DIRECTORS OF CIFFOP Nicole CATALA Anne-Marie FERICELLI CIFFOP, leading Center in human resources CIFFOP (Intedisciplinary Center for Human Resources Education) was established in 1971 due to the visionary initiative of Professor Nicole Catala and the support of several Human Resources professionals, all possessing remarkable foresight on the future and the importance of Human Resources functions. The fi rst university institute dedicated to the education of human resources professionals, in direct cooperation with the business world CIFFOP is an institute forming part of the prestigious University of Paris, Panthéon-Assas, and the only dedicated center for human resources management training within the Sorbonne University Network. It offers several advanced master s degrees (Master 2) in human resources and coaching. CIFFOP s goals are to train students, graduates of business schools and post-graduate programs (Master 1), to meet the challenges of tomorrow and changes in the profession, in order to prepare them to take on responsibilities in all areas of human resources management and labor relations: HR management in businesses, multinational companies, international organizations, substantive servicing, business units, and consultancy firms. Pioneering leading degrees The successive diploma Directors have continuously engaged in innovative measures extending the pioneering role of CIFFOP, as evidenced by the increasing number of human resources professionals, the development of a highly qualified human resources professionals mentoring system (twenty-one mentors advise groups of four or five students), the internationalization of training programs (including one study trip abroad each year since 2004) and, since 1998, the establishment of a work-study apprenticeship program. The many educational innovations are the result of ongoing co-operation between CIFFOP lecturers and graduates. Building on this success, CIFFOP created its International Human Resources Management Master in 2007, which is taught exclusively in English. This degree is mainly intended for international students: To meet the needs of business executives wishing to develop their skills and knowledge in human resources management, CIFFOP established an Executive program in Paris in 2009, and in Luxembourg in January 2011: Ranked as a leader by specialized journals CIFFOP s original Master program is regularly ranked number one in the Liaisons Sociales & Kelly Service rankings of the best initial training programs in human resources. CIFFOP s Executive program is already ranked by «Management» journal as one of the best continuing education Master (November 2011). CIFFOP is therefore meeting the challenge of being a professional training school in human resources management within a university setting, in which students receive high quality academic training, in an exceptional environment, offering personalized facilities and the most modern teaching methods.

4 EDUCATIONAL TUTORS 2 Our tutor was always available to listen. I appreciated the richness of our exchanges at each of our meetings. Thank you for having established a tutoring system at CIFFOP. It is in my view a very precious relationship, allowing us to step back and truly refl ect on HR functions. Myriam Lacroix, Year 2011 HR Junior Manager, SWAROVSKI Each CIFFOP student is assisted by a tutor, a Director of Human Resources in a major company, or a recognized expert. This tutoring system is original to CIFFOP s educational strategy. Each tutor, depending on his specialization and area of competence, emphasizes a particular area of knowledge to impart Hervé BORENSZTEJN to students, for example, workplace relations or experience in managing a central works council. The tutor acts as a coach. He or she provides the wisdom of experience and helps the students develop critical judgment with observational methods. The students can therefore position themselves within their career or professional project. Cyril ACCARD Consultant Hervé BORENSZTEJN Expert RH Dominique PEPIN Group Director of Training Franck MOUGIN HR & Sustainable Development Director Anne de RAVARAN Legal Counsel, HR A small story...from the outset, it seemed natural...the transmission of knowledge, the links between generations, the partnership between Business and University, so many good reasons to agree to be a tutor. Then, you discover the richness of the subjects addressed, the ideas challenged, the truths that we don t always hear anymore, you realize the richness of the educational system built up by CIFFOP. The end of the year soon arrives and you know that you have experienced something wonderful.

5 THE NETWORKS AT THE HEART OF CIFFOP 3 I would like to give some feedback on the evening event organized by CEFOP. Super! We were not as many as expected and as a result, there were 20 CIFFOP students, and around 10 CEFOP experts present. The presentation on networking was interesting and the CV/ career advice was brilliant, given that an alumnus spent 30/45 minutes with each of us giving individual advice on points to improve... for some, it concerned the CV, for others, their presentation at interview or even their professional plans. I think that everyone benefi ted from it and was happy afterwards. Pass on my acknowledgments! Fanny Barutel, Class of 2011, Recruitment Officer PRINTEMPS HAUSSMANN CEFOP, an effi cient network of 1600 CIFFOP graduates This network is composed of the three CIFFOP human resources programs: the original Master program in Human Resources Management and Labor Relations, the Master 2 in International Human Resources Management, and the Executive Master 2 program. This community is an essential asset in an economic context of continuous transformation, where networks play an increasingly important role. The various committees or projects led by active members of CEFOP seek to promote exchanges with CIFFOP students and graduates of all generations, and to strengthen this community. In this spirit, two initiatives were undertaken in 2011, in complement to long established initiatives which have proven their relevance: the CEFOPot social events, which bring almost 100 CIFFOP students and alumni (from the oldest to the youngest!) together several times a year in convivial settings. The HR workshops, organized jointly with CIFFOP students. The goal of these workshops is to bring together persons involved in HR functions, by sharing perspectives with professionals from other backgrounds and promoting exchanges, in order to contribute together to renewing HR reflection on and identification with emerging issues in HRM offices. In 2012, CIFFOP is 40 years old! This is the occasion to celebrate our graduates in a spirit which is always synonymous with professionalism and humanism. CEFOP provides its members with tools adapted to the needs of business: an annual professional directory which is updated and edited by graduates and businesses; a Careers Network to accompany CIFFOP graduates throughout their professional lives, in a real spirit of networking; an interactive website: REFERENCE RH accreditation CIFFOP is accredited by REFERENCE RH, the leading network of professional university programs in Human Resources Management: Membership of REFERENCE RH is a guarantee to students and businesses of a program which respects the excellence criteria of high quality HRM university courses.

6 INTERNATIONAL TRAINING 4 20% of teaching is carried out in English. Taking the TOEIC test is obligatory. Conferences with foreign professors and experts. Organization of international professional seminars. This professional seminar was remarkably well organized! There is nothing negative to say. Perfect timing, excellent leadership, enriching professional encounters and a balanced division of time (conferences/free time), I think that it would be hard to do better! Nobody could deny that this professional seminar again allowed CIFFOP to fl y its colors high. For my part, I go back to work with lots of memories and openness towards this wonderful Asian culture which we encountered over one week. Thanks again to you and all of the teaching team Antoine Martinoli Remuneration and Employee Benefits Officer SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC Since its establishment, CIFFOP has contributed to successive innovations allowing it to strengthen the excellence of its training. Attentive to developments in the HR professions and to the expectations of partner enterprises, CIFFOP is active internationally. In order to optimize its international presence and allow students greater opportunities to practice strategic HR management internationally, CIFFOP now organizes annual professional trips abroad: 2004 : LONDON : DUBLIN : HONG-KONG 2007 : MONTREAL : NEW YORK : MOROCCO 2010 : PRAGUE : SINGAPORE :QATAR & ABU DHABI 2013 : STOCKHOLM. As well as providing obvious personal enrichment, the professional seminars are the source of real professional knowledge in terms of human resources management and methods in the host country. Meetings with local managers and Human Resources Directors at various companies permit students to also understand cultural differences. This high-quality educational seminar assists them in adapting to the current socio-economic context thanks to deeper knowledge of the international stakes and sharpened intellectual curiosity. In terms of professional ambition, this experience abroad is often a motivating factor to pursue careers internationally.

8 6 WORK/STUDY PROGRAM The objective of this training is to equip students to respond to the skills needs of businesses and to promote the employability of young graduates. A work/study program promotes quick access to management and leadership responsibilities in Human Resources Management divisions, both in private companies and in the public sector. Since 1998, the master s program stands apart from other university programs in offering a work/study alternation program with an apprenticeship period in a company. This format contributes to strengthening the professionalism of students and their integration into professional life. The apprenticeship is a great success with companies and the number of work/study contracts offered to students largely exceeds class numbers. PARTNER COMPANIES WHO RECRUITED AN APPRENTICE IN CHANEL I think that the CIFFOP Master program has become one of the most professional HR master s. Its work/study format, the involvement of numerous professionals and experts, the tutoring of students by HR Directors in major companies, and the creation of a network during and after training via CEFOP are all assets allowing CIFFOP students and graduates to quickly integrate and develop responsibilities within HR services.

9 ... FIRST-CLASS PROFESSIONAL TRAINING 7 Job fair The business partners and CIFFOP organize an annual job fair for professional recruiters. Interactive exchanges between the students and professionals are of great assistance in finding a host company for their apprenticeship. CIFFOP graduates are also attending to present the company s activities and the careers available and to respond to students questions. Since 2012, due to increasing international recruitment, the recruitment fair is also present virtually, in the form of a webinar allowing international students, admitted to CIFFOP but still residing in their own countries, to participate in the fair and benefit from a first contact with the partner companies. Tasks entrusted to apprentices HR development (reflections on annual interview appraisals, talent management, training, mobility etc.); Salaries and employee benefits assignments; Legal assignments: responding to various labor law issues, management of employee files requiring legal expertise; Labor relations assignments: managing relations with employee representatives; Recruitment of interns from the International Volunteers in Business program and apprentices: examination of CVs, conducting selection interviews autonomously; Participation in relations with universities and schools; Preparation of central works councils, monthly company meetings, monitoring committees, social audit reports, etc. Management of expatriate employees: calculation of their remuneration, drafting of expatriate contracts, management of relations with the expatriate employee throughout their assignment abroad. Employability Thanks to their industry experience and the achievement of specific tasks, CIFFOP graduates have little problem finding their first job. For example, despite the economic crisis in 2011, 91% of the class of 2011 was employed or pursuing a personal development project within three months of graduating. Work contract 73 % International Volunteers in Business 11 % Job hunting 9 % Personal development projects 7 % Positions held AXENS HR officer Recruitment & Skills AMARIS HR projects officer BOUYGUES IMMOBILIER HR executive, disability unit BOUYGUES TELECOM HR executive CHANEL International Mobility Officer DTP Terrassement / BOUYGUES CONSTRUCTION HR Executive FAURECIA HR Reporting Officer FNAC Remuneration and Employee Benefits Officer GROUPE BEL Human Resources Officer Near and Middle East GROUPE SORIN HR Business Partner IPSEN HR Associate KURT SALMON Business Analyst L OREAL International Recruitment NESTLE General Human Resources Officer PEPSI Human Resources Manager PSA Peugeot Citroën Compensation & Benefits Analyst SAFRAN - MESSIER BUGATTI Local HR SWAROVSKI Recruitment and Training Manager TF1 Labor Law In-House Counsel TOTAL en ÉCOSSE HR Development/Expatriate Management VINCI Human Resources Manager VALEO HR Development Coordinator CIFFOP was a real stepping-stone to a professional career. Thanks to personal follow-up and the alumni network, I was able to fi nd my fi rst job. In fact, a CIFFOP alumnus contacted Bella Ferreira, CIFFOP Coordinator, when an opportunity arose at GE Healthcare. Bella passed on the CVBook of the graduating class, highlighting profi les that met the job spec. I was then recruited as HR Manager. The personal follow-up with graduates is a real plus of this course. Gwenaelle REMY Class of 2011 HR Manager, GENERAL ELETRIC

10 MASTER IN HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT 8 The fi rst French post-graduate diploma, today a master s program, in the fi eld of human resources. Since 1971, this course has been supported by ANDRH, The National Association of Human Resources Directors and Managers. CIFFOP provides the opportunity to meet with numerous HR professionals with a passion for their job. The work/study format combines practical and academic training, and CIFFOP s partner companies provide opportunities to land very interesting assignments during the apprenticeship. Cécile du Chaffaut Class of 2008, Task Officer, SM/LE Objectives The principal objective of this master s program is to prepare students having already completed four years of post-secondary education training (University or top-tier school) to meet the challenges of tomorrow and changes in the profession, and to occupy roles: - in human resources management for major national and international companies; - in substantive servicing; - as Human Resources officers in business units; - in consultancy firms. The teaching provided by CIFFOP is thus intended to train future HR executives, while also developing their personal managerial skills. Selection criteria The students admitted to the Master degree come from a wide range of disciplines: they all hold a Master 1 level degree (four years of post-secondary education) in fields such as Management, Law, Economics, Political Science, Pyschology, Philosophy, History. Students having completed degrees in Commerce or Engineering are also eligible. Applicants should meet the following criteria: - Proficiency in English (level assessed during the selection interview); - If possible, have completed internships in companies, preferably in a HR department; - Genuine desire to work in the field of human resources management. - Time spent working or studying abroad is also desirable. Candidates can register and download the application forms each year on the Panthéon- Assas University website: Program The Master is intended as a bridge between predominantly theoretical studies (around 500 hours over 18 weeks) and the progressive exercise of responsibilities in a professional environment (around 1,000 hours). Calendar - September - November: full-time training at CIFFOP; - November - May: alternate between 3 weeks spent on site in a company and 1 week in the classroom; - From mid-may until the end of the contract: full-time at the company. Acquisition of academic and methodological knowledge in classes divided into four main fi elds of study Management modules: HR strategy, finance, employment policy, statistics, skills management, remuneration policies. Finance and accounting Statistics and data analysis for HRM Employment policy Management skills Remuneration policies Management of training Personnel administration IT systems for HR management Management of recruitment Retirement policies Innovation and company monitoring Labor relations scoreboard statistics Human resources strategy

11 AND LABOR RELATIONS 9 Law modules: individual and collective labor relations, practical exercises in law. Introduction to private law Criminal employment law, Psychosocial risks Social protection International and comparative labor law Human Resources management modules Organizational theory International human resources and management Introduction to Human Resources Management Leadership Information and communication Collective bargaining and company negotiation HR risk management modules Employee representation, labor conflicts and crisis management Leading change Mergers and acquisitions transactions practices Labor relations in France and in Europe Ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR) Codes of conduct Talent management Professional skills modules: integration seminar, apprenticeship mentoring, integration into professional networks, lectures by experts. Coaching and personal development Induction seminar Professional transition seminar Series of conferences Integration into professional networks CIFFOP students are required to complete three term papers during the year: an observation report, a dissertation on a particular topic, and an apprenticeship report which is the subject of an oral examination. For their observation report, CIFFOP students must spend a short period in an operational role in a company, at the lowest level of the business hierarchy. The goal of this short internship is to allow the student to understand the feelings, perspectives, attitudes and behavior of persons occupying operational positions. These persons will be their future clients. A student who has spent a week in a factory alongside the workers, doing the same job and sharing the same tasks, will certainly have a new perspective towards the people that he or she will one day manage. Cyril Accard Director, ORES 5EARCH CIFFOP was one of the best years of my studies, both in terms of the quality of the training and teaching as well as the openness of this Master towards professional life and the world of business. My undergraduate studies were in political science and I had no experience of HR, either academically or through internships. This year allowed me to really specialize and to acquire professional skills - thanks to the apprenticeship - in this fi eld, while working in a very warm and supportive environment. Motivation, clear professional goals and a real openness of spirit are to my mind the main qualities required to join this master s program.

These were my goals in entering the Masters and I am delighted with it. Irène M. Class of , CIFFOP Luxembourg
