The academic excellence and multi-cultural differences of the first professors I met during that module represent what makes INSEAD so special.
Become a very good observer and a listener; if one looks closely there’s so much to learn even in what seems to be very routine day-to-day life.
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.

An INSEAD Executive MBA offers a lifetime of returns, both professionally and personally. But it is also an investment that needs to be carefully considered and planned.

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.

We discussed a whole range of themes, but if you’d like to jump to specific questions below is quick list:
