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.
How to finance your master programme apart from personal savings? For INSEAD’s Executive Master in Finance (EMFin), there are various options such as INSEAD scholarships, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Scholarships and gaining your employer’s support to consider.
The EMFin empowered me with a much broader perspective regarding how other verticals within our industry, and indeed, other industries operate.
I recently had the opportunity to discuss the value of an INSEAD Executive MBA (EMBA) with Rebecca Fountain of PWN Global – an organisation committed to advancing gender-balanced leadership in business, and a smart network for professional development. INSEAD has been partnering for a number of years with PWN, and it is an organisation we stand behind with full support. We discussed a whole range of themes, but if you’d like to jump to specific questions below is quick list:
We have just finished the recruitment cycle for another incoming class of INSEAD Executive MBA participants. The GEMBA Asia and Middle East sections have already kicked off the programme with the first module, and we will welcome the new GEMBA Europe section at the end of October in Fontainebleau.
These are exciting times - the INSEAD Europe campus is getting ready to welcome its first Master in Management (MIM) class. As the school celebrates its 60th anniversary it is only getting younger, more energetic and more innovative!
Prior to INSEAD, I had worked for four years in financial markets advisories in the US, and by coming to INSEAD, I always hoped that I would be able to do something that I had never done and go somewhere that I had never been. A summer at African Leadership Finance Company (ALFC) in Nairobi, Kenya hit two birds with one stone with the help of the INSEAD Social Impact Award. The reason for doing this internship was threefold:
It’s funny how time passes. It feels as if I joined INSEAD in Singapore a lifetime ago, but I just looked at my calendar and it’s only been a little over a month. I’ve attended a bunch of parties, drank a few too many beers and gone on two international trips in the span of five weeks. INSEAD certainly does live up to its name of being an unforgettable year.
Our goal at INSEAD is to recruit the best and brightest to join our school — regardless of background or financial situation. And if it’s always been your dream to attend our top-ranked MBA programme, we’re here to help you through our scholarships. Learn more about the different ways you can finance your INSEAD MBA.
An Executive Master in Finance is a significant investment of time and money. Gaining your employer's support would typically mean getting the company to sponsor full or part of the tuition fees, and agreeing on time away from work to attend the modules.
