Most Executive MBA (EMBA) participants are looking for some kind of career change, either during the programme or after graduation. However, individual professional development needs and goals tend to differ widely amongst participants, and the INSEAD Career Development Centre for Working Professionals (CDWP) is in place to support you in the process of self-assessment and discovery, as well as execution of your individual career plan.
Executive MBA (EMBA) participants have diverse needs for career support, whether they are already on their way to building a successful career in their current organisation, or looking to progress in a new organisation or a new field.

According to the 2018-2019 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) report, 78.7% of the U.S. population believes that entrepreneurs are held in high regard, and the country has had a record-breaking boom cycle since 2010.
