The INSEAD Executive Master in Change (EMC) is a programme unlike any other. It is a personal development pathway that takes you deep into the basic drivers of human behaviour and the hidden dynamics of organisations. 

By integrating business education with a range of psychological disciplines, the EMC prepares participants to assume roles in leading organisations, drive individual and organisational development, and successfully execute change management.  

The programme takes place over the course of 18 months in a convenient modular format that allows participants to study while they work.

The EMC has intakes on both the INSEAD Europe and Asia campuses each year. The class profile below offers a brief introduction to the participants of our EMC'24 Classes, showcasing their professional profiles and objectives for pursuing the EMC.

"Through my (legally trained) analytical skills coupled with my focus on emotions and systems-psychodynamics, I find meaning and purpose in contributing to a more humane working world", he shares. 

"One key learning from the EMC is how to overcome purely rational management by paying attention to the conscious and unconscious dynamics in organisations.
