The effects of external magnetic fields on the phase diagram structure of QCD are studied. We use NJL-type models to investigate the impact of magnetic fields on both chiral and
deconfinement phase transitions. We focus on possible consequences of the Inverse Magnetic Catalysis effect on Critical-End-Point (CEP).
