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.
One of my most rewarding experiences at INSEAD has been my involvement with the Storytelling Club, where students share personal stories, usually completely unrelated to their professional personas. You don’t hear many stories at business school. You’ll quickly find that most of your conversations center on your last job, your classes, your future job, or an upcoming trip.
"I enjoyed your two-hour presentation. It was as exciting as watching paint dry." Did you know that when used in the right way, sarcasm can benefit both the user and those on the receiving end? Research shows that sarcasm can inspire creativity in a work environment, but the key is to use sarcasm in a safe and "constructive" way so it doesn't backfire.

Since my rock climbing days at UCL when I first heard about a business school set in the wonderful forest of Fontainebleau, I have wanted to go to INSEAD. So six weeks ago was the culmination of a long-held dream when I graduated from INSEAD’s Global Executive MBA programme. For that, I first have to thank my lovely wife without whom I definitely would not have made it!
INSEAD’s MIM and MBA programmes offer two locations – the Asia campus in Singapore and the Europe campus in Fontainebleau, France. The way of life between the two locations varies widely, so for those who are unfamiliar with Singapore, here are 10 things to know about this little island on the world map.
