Singapore, a vibrant city-state in Asia, offers numerous advantages as a study destination for your MBA. If you’re still deciding which location to choose for your home campus, here are three compelling reasons that make Singapore stand out as a great place to accelerate your career.
I chose the INSEAD MBA for its strong European connections, promising ROI, and commitment to quality learning and networking.
The pursuit of entrepreneurship is a journey that requires more than just a brilliant idea; it demands a profound understanding of the business landscape, access to relevant resources, and a network of like-minded visionaries. When it comes to equipping aspiring entrepreneurs with these essential tools, INSEAD's MBA programme stands out as a global leader.
The CDC helped me translate the vision I had in mind to identify roles and company types I should be looking for. Once offers started coming in, brainstorming together and having an outsider's perspective was a huge advantage.
INSEAD was my first choice because of its incredibly diverse student body, the one-year length of its MBA programme, the ability to study in both Singapore and in France, and of course its reputation for providing an outstanding, globally-focused education.
I knew that to prepare for the entrepreneurship path, I needed deeper exposure to other business domains than marketing and data. INSEAD, with its reputation for nurturing entrepreneurship and diversity, was my top choice.
Professionally speaking, I am the reasonable type. I have always restrained myself from doing crazy things. So, if five years ago you would have told me that I would be starting my own company in the wine business, I would have thought that *you* were mad. Let me tell you the story of how I decided to dive into my passion.
Team Quokka: Ian Yamaguchi and Matt Dodd Forming a plan Matt and Ian have been mates since the start of INSEAD and both share an interest in tech and entrepreneurship. When we heard about SSUP early in the course, we were keen to get involved. While exploring options for our trip, a newly minted programme to head to Western Australia caught our attention.

Team Start-up Mates: Lien Nguyen, Shwetali Sinkar, Hillary Yee Backstory Team Start-up Mates was very intrigued when they first heard about this ‘special’ summer start-up tour in Australia this year.
A lot of times I get asked if doing an MBA is worth it or what the ROI of an INSEAD MBA is. I always say "it depends" on what you're looking for in the short term vs. long term. Admittedly, INSEAD was a HUGE financial investment for me as a 25-year old in India with no savings and no family funds to bank on.
