The successful growth of an individual is highly dependent on the environment, and I believe that INSEAD’s global presence is the ‘nurturing soil’ for any strong seed to take root and grow.
The importance of collaboration, teamwork, and effective management stands out. I've integrated these principles into my work ethos.
As one of the top Executive MBA programmes in the world, there is a myriad of reasons why INSEAD’s Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) programme stands out from the rest. Listen to this 12-minute audio presentation to get an overview of the key features of this unique programme designed to redefine your leadership skills and accelerate your career.
Five years ago I was in Abu Dhabi for one of my last INSEAD GEMBA modules by Professor Philip M. Parker. It was titled Al Strategy for Startups and C-Suites. This elective course was designed to introduce, demystify and investigate value creation strategies in ecosystems relating to AI, machine learning (ML) and and advanced analytics. I was curious and apprehensive as I knew nothing about AI beyond science fiction. And especially how this could be applied in my daily life or work.
Since I began my Executive MBA, I have been managing my time more efficiently than ever before. In addition to my full-time job, I find myself working most of nights and weekends for pre-readings and projects. I need to learn not only about finance, accounting, strategy, marketing, process and operations management, economics, and organisational courses, but I also need to continue developing leadership skills, doing peer coaching and self-reflection.
From 2018 to 2019, I went through the INSEAD Global Executive MBA (GEMBA), then from 2021 to 2023, I enrolled in the INSEAD Executive Master in Change (EMC). These five years were literally a transformational journey, and I would like to share my view on how each programme benefits you and give you a better insight on which programme might suit you better (or both perhaps).

I still remember last year when we were in Singapore with classmates from China talking about when we will be able to resume our classes in Beijing without quarantine. It is unbelievable that this came faster than we expected. Here we are, finally all gathered together at Tsinghua, the prestigious university in China, to learn about data, models and decision-making, frontier economic issues in China, and corporate governance. This was the first time I returned to China after COVID.
Prepare to make lasting connections with your cohort of over 200 peers across four campuses, and be ready to dive into completely new areas of learning that you are not familiar with at all. This journey won't be easy, but it will be incredibly rewarding.
INSEAD is not just a business school; it is an incubator that nurses intellectual, professional, and personal development.
