Leadership is both science and art. It is so intangible and abstract just like the air, yet such an incredibly critical force that holds ambitious endeavours together like gravity. Learnings about leadership are so embedded in the INSEAD experience that when I reflect back on my one-year MBA journey, I feel pleasantly surprised by the new leadership wisdom and capability I have developed.
As a Chinese student, I looked forward to INSEAD Chinese Cultural Week as an opportunity to showcase the highlights and joy of my culture with classmates from all around the world. After an intensive week full of cultural and educational activities, genuine discussion and much fun and laughter, I realised that the experience helped me to connect deeper with my Chinese roots and see my own culture from a new perspective.
National weeks have always been an INSEAD tradition, and we were honoured to have been selected to host the cultural week this year. During the week of May 17th, we hosted Chinese Culture Week and presented the diverse elements that China has to offer, including food, dance, calligraphy, costume, travel, business culture, and society.
