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.

GEMBA vs TIEMBA – Which programme is suitable for you? INSEAD’s Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) and the Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA (TIEMBA) are more similar than they are different. Both are modular programmes tailored for experienced executives to hone their leadership skills and advance their careers to the next level.
Last updated: 24 August 2021 The INSEAD Executive MBA is an intensive programme with a rigorous academic curriculum.

"The professors are so engrossing that it's never an effort" In this video, INSEAD GEMBA participants discuss the impact that the programme faculty have had on them personally and professionally.
We interviewed GEMBA'07 Alumna Charlotte Mason at her workplace, and talked about the experience and the impact the programme has had on her life sometime after. After graduation, she had quickly moved up from middle management to senior management, and then changed tracks to become an entrepreneur.
