I have been contacted by several people from my network about my experience at the INSEAD Executive MBA, especially regarding the tuition and the question of the company sponsorship.

In this episode, we discuss careers and leadership in entrepreneurial startups, with a particular focus on Executive MBA careers. Approximately half of INSEAD graduates run their own companies at some point in their careers. Others join high growth ventures, lead entrepreneurial projects within corporations, or focus on social ventures. We discuss some of the challenges that present when running your own company.

Which Programme Suits You Best? Most people are familiar with full or part-time MBA programmes, but an often heard question is about the differences between an MBA and an Executive MBA programme. So, what exactly are the differences, advantages and disadvantages, and how do you know which programme would suit you best? This video and article contrasts the MBA and Executive MBA programme and highlights the curriculum, class profile, programme structure and admissions processes for both of them.
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.
The INSEAD Executive MBA is an intensive programme with a rigorous academic curriculum. To ensure that we bring the best talent to the class, applicants must either take the INSEAD Assessment, the GMAC Executive Assessment (EA) or the GMAT – all of which provide a uniform and standardised way of evaluating candidates’ aptitude to cope with the intensity and breadth of the programme.
"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.
In 2014 it had been a decade since the first EMBA class graduated from INSEAD. We paid tribute to this ambitious group (and their successors) that took great strides in moving their careers forward by joining a distinguished global programme for top executives and entrepreneurs. Based on the valedictory speech of Deepa Chatrath at the EMBA graduation ceremony in 2004. Join the programme of a lifetime!
