The INSEAD Master in Management is designed to give graduates a head start in today’s business world. To succeed, they must have an edge in both technology and people skills, as well as an understanding of the world’s most pressing issues, and how business and society must innovate to be a force for good.
The curriculum design followed a well-thought-out and inclusive consultation process involving faculty, the school board as well as recruiters, to gather feedback on what skills and knowledge today’s MIM graduates are lacking in the workplace.
This process led us to create a programme that profoundly caters to the needs of the graduate job market, by offering practical and experiential learning that equips students with a competitive advantage and enables them to successfully launch a fulfilling global management career.
In this series, we take an in-depth look at each of the five study periods, to discover what students can expect during their MIM journey at INSEAD.
