I chose INSEAD because of its strong brand in Africa and the school’s focus on emerging markets strategy and technology entrepreneurship.
Every new idea I heard, I thought: “I can apply this in Africa."
Having studied and worked all my life in and around Montreal, INSEAD is my gateway to international opportunities. So much learned in the first half of the MBA. As practice makes perfect, why not a summer internship to practice all of this? What one might expect coming in Africa with an outsider’s point of view is to have many misconceptions shattered. Of course, it’s easy to think about Africa as a continent, one continent. But how about viewing it as 54 different countries?
