It is June again, and I have just got into the summer break. Six months (60%) of the program is over, and in another six months, I will be moving away from my student life, on to a different phase of life. When you are in a long and busy hike, a stop mid-way offers a not to miss opportunity, to not only look ahead to your end goal, but also look back at the journey you undertook. To me, June is that juncture of a “not to miss” reflection.
The INSEAD Executive Master in Finance programme is designed to prepare the next generation of leaders that will drive the finance industry into the future.

Anne Bresman, Global Director for Executive Degree Programmes at INSEAD, breaks down the finer points of the INSEAD Executive Master in Finance (EMFin)'s admissions process and outlines what they look for in a typical participant.
I've toyed with the idea of doing an MBA for the better part of my career, and the reasons for doing one had changed over the years. I came from an untraditional background of mathematical sciences (with a double major in English), and education. Due to my impatience as a fresh grad at the huge saturation of teachers in the Toronto region, I never actually had the opportunity to teach in a high school classroom. Instead, I quickly pivoted into banking and started my entry-level job in retail banking.
Hi everyone! My name is Julian and in the next 10 months I will try to give you the best possible and unfiltered view on "my real life" at INSEAD. To start and to be frankly honest, I am a bit scared. A bit scared about my next step in life and my career. A bit scared about opening up to the world in this blog. A bit scared to "compare" myself with the amazing group of people that make up INSEAD.
Hi World!!! This is my first opportunity as a blogger and I must say I am rather curious about the route this is going to take. I basically started this as I feel INSEAD is such a great experience that I want to try to express it in a different way than I am used to, also embracing my new life of challenges and new experiences.
