When I walked off the plane five months ago in Singapore and headed straight for our launch day at INSEAD, I had no idea what was in store for me. I had been living in South Africa working as a Product Manager for Tencent.
The Executive Master in Finance (EMFin) is designed for experienced finance professionals looking to accelerate their careers by honing their leadership and management skills as well as deepening their knowledge of the sector. The programme is primarily taught in the Asia Campus in Singapore; a global and regional financial hub with a progressive financial market.
I see myself in an environment where I have the opportunity to have a positive impact on people’s lives.
International motivation is listed as one of the criteria for being admitted into the INSEAD MBA programme. But what does it actually mean? How do you actually prove such a thing? International motivation is one of the things I like to talk about, as it is key to the mission of INSEAD, bringing together people, cultures and ideas to develop responsible leaders who transform business and society.
What are the meaningful ways that women and gender-diverse individuals can be hired and authentically included in a company’s leadership?

One of the most rewarding moments in my role as recruiter for INSEAD's Executive Master in Finance (EMFin) is to meet participants who are selected for the new cohort for the first time at our Programme Opening Ceremony. Usually this is organised on a Sunday afternoon, right before the first 2-week study period of Module 1 kicks off.
After the first module, I am more convinced that I made the right choice to study my EMFIn at INSEAD. The intensity, rigour, wisdom and insights from the lecturers and the rich discussions in the class room and group discussions makes it even more worth it and invaluable. Looking forward to the next chapter of this journey.
At INSEAD, we embrace every culture and provide opportunities for everyone to explain their backgrounds and perspectives. The renowned National Weeks are held during our MBA Experience, allowing our cohorts to discover each others' cultures. And to promote Chinese culture on campus, we had our Panda Week Campaign.
