I have successfully transitioned to become a leader in our company and in the industry at large.
It is true that there is always a sense of triumph, achievement, and accomplishment when you reach the halfway mark and start taking steps into the last subsequent half. It gives momentum and confidence with the knowingness that the end is insight. INSEAD celebrated this milestone by offering a break from the gritty, demanding details of finance and presenting us with an opportunity to explore the significance of qualitative instruction.
I am a Vice President of the Private Infrastructure Asia Pacific Investment team for Partners Group. I was motivated to pursue the Executive Master in Finance (EMFin) programme because I wanted to equip myself with the knowledge and experience to be able to drive my firm's infrastructure investment in Asia in the future. I was drawn to INSEAD's small classroom interactions where faculty and participants could spend hours debating and talking about business issues and how each of us may approach the same issue differently because of our diverse backgrounds.

Starting my journey at INSEAD came with the typical uncertainties; expectations of workload, marking schemes and competitive environments, to name a few. Knowing that I would not be able to study with my classmates in person was an added ambiguity. What I have learnt during my time over the past eight months of the programme, is that collaborating on group projects binds people together quickly.
In 2000, INSEAD inaugurated its Asia campus in Singapore. With this bold step, INSEAD became the first business school to have two full-fledged campuses with permanent faculty - one in Europe, the other in Asia. Since then, the school’s vision evolved from "creating a bridge between Asia and the rest of the world” to bringing together people, cultures and ideas to develop responsible leaders who transform business and society globally. We have also added the Middle East campus in Abu Dhabi, as well as the San Francisco Hub.
