The project to run and track our collective progress via an app first started as an effort to keep the GEMBA19 cohort together when physically apart, and to help get us into better shape (fit body, fit mind). We also wanted to showcase our diversity and lastly, but most importantly, to be a force for good.
The Leadership Development Programme (LDP) is a unique feature of the INSEAD EMBA: It's a programme that follows and shapes your personal and professional development—and runs throughout your time as a participant.
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.
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.
We explore the intersection of business and society and discuss careers in social impact and sustainability. The challenges of our times are immense, and the decisions made by leaders today will determine the future. We discuss what "Force For Good" means as INSEAD develops the next generation of global business leaders, managers and entrepreneurs who will tackle world-scale problems. We also learn more about the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society. Our guests today Katell Le Goulven
I came out of the programme being a better friend, a better husband and a better father.
When a consultant from an Executive Search firm called to sound out my interest for a position they were working on, I didn't know it would turn out to be my next career move. I wasn't actively looking, as I was well protected by the company-sponsored INSEAD programme and generous employment terms. I did know that my learning curve was flattening out, which is not something I particularly enjoy.
Thinking of doing an MBA? Debating if an Executive MBA is something for you? Check out my video where I answer the question whether it was worth it, and to see my top ten reasons why it might be something for you too!
INSEAD’s Executive MBA programme is intensive, rigorous and challenging. 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.
