Why should we care about these two words: “cognitive load”? Perhaps I should begin this explanation by introducing myself. I’m Dr. Helen Willis, and I am a cognitive neuroscientist. I have my own online neuroscience consultancy, The Connectome Connection. I am also the partner of a '23J student. We have just completed P1 and P2 in Singapore, and are in the process of moving over to Fontainebleau for P3-5.
Classes at INSEAD are very engaging. The discussions are lively, and professors always seek to hear different perspectives.
It's such a pleasure to know that every single day, I am learning not just from the esteemed professors, but also from classmates and from my environment.
Rigour and relevance in teaching and research are one of INSEAD’s five founding values, together with diversity as a source of learning and enrichment, independence as a governance principle, closeness to the international business community and an entrepreneurial spirit. The school's global reputation for research and teaching excellence is underpinned by currently 165 faculty members from 40+ countries across all four INSEAD locations.
The INSEAD Master in Management (MIM) is a 14 to 16-month programme with an innovative learning approach and applied problem-solving orientation. It aims to empower the next generation of well-rounded, agile-thinking and innovative individuals who are ready to make a positive impact in today's society. Alumni from the programme will be ideally placed to launch a global career, with 99% receiving a job offer within three months of graduation.
I wanted to position myself for an international role, develop leadership skills, build a diverse network of alumni, and better understand and explore my strengths and weaknesses.
I believe an important reason for the inspiring learning environment is not only the careful selection of students but also the professors’ ability to create an inclusive and informal classroom atmosphere where all students feel like participating.
INSEAD is uniquely skilled at selecting people, whether student or faculty.
INSEAD operates on a “psychological safety” principle, and everyone is encouraged to curiously and respectfully inquire and connect. Of the top schools, the campus is unequivocally the most diverse. Make use of that diversity of ethnicity, nationality, and thought.
INSEAD is continually seeking ways to drive innovation in teaching methods and embrace cutting-edge approaches to virtual, hybrid and in-classroom course delivery. Many INSEAD students have documented their positive experiences of these approaches in a range of testimonials. But what is it that makes INSEAD’s classrooms – whether virtual or in-person – so engaging?
