INSEAD's Master in Management (MIM) programme is designed 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. If you are a young professional with zero to two years of work experience looking to learn beyond theory, acquire practical skills and maximise your career potential, INSEAD's MIM is one to explore.
The INSEAD Master in Management is designed to give graduates a head start in today’s business world. The curriculum design involved faculty, the school board as well as recruiters, to gather feedback on what skills and knowledge today’s young professionals are typically lacking in the workplace. This process led us to create the MIM Practicals which are integrated into each of the five study periods.
P3 is the last study period on the Fontainebleau campus, before the cohort moves on to Abu Dhabi (optional) and Singapore. In the Core Courses, you will learn to apply your accounting knowledge to practical managerial uses, discover the exciting and perhaps surprising aspects of operations and logistics, and understand the intersection between business, government and public policy.
Following a short break to catch your breath after the first period, P2 beckons with deep dives into Machine Learning, Valuation and Microeconomics. At the end of the period, the Practical will get you hands-on in valuing real-life companies and analysing the intricacies of business acquisitions. While you will stay with your home group for one of the Core Courses, you will be assigned a new group for P2, giving you the opportunity to form close bonds with other classmates and stretch your teambuilding skills even further.
Learning in the New Normal takes places in many different forms: on campus, virtual or hybrid. Hear first-hand from the community on what the INSEAD experience is like in these extraordinary times.
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how necessary career agility is in today’s workplace. Many workers all over the world had to adapt to working from home, and with that shift, came changing relationships to their professional networks and industry goals. Other professionals needed to alter their companies’ focus, commitment, and client base, which in turn, altered their strategic plans.
Having completed P0, everyone gathers on the INSEAD Fontainebleau Campus to begin the programme. Your first few days will consist of welcome celebrations, teambuilding and cultural awareness activities, and then it will be time to meet your home group and dive into the first study period P1, consisting of eight weeks, three Core Courses, a Workshop and a Practical. Here's what to expect in P1:
Gearing up, getting ready and go! Hot on the heels of the final application deadline, P0 is an online module for all admitted students. It comprises three topics that lay the foundations for the MIM programme, as well as two optional elements and plenty of introduction and networking opportunities.
Master Strategy Day is a highlight for INSEAD students. One of our core courses is Introduction to Strategy, where we compete in teams to design a creative yet feasible strategy for a client within 24 hours. The challenges, learning, teamwork, excitement and intellectual fulfilment all made the experience incredible.
By the third year of my undergraduate degree in Engineering, I knew I wanted to do business. I didn’t know what exactly business meant, but I did know that I found my internships in commercial and business development teams absolutely fascinating. So how would I make a switch from Mechanical Engineering to Business?
