"It is worth remembering that it is often the small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change." – Queen Elizabeth II, Christmas 2019 The struggle is real
I am now four months into this life-changing experience that is the Global Executive MBA (GEMBA), and with the constantly changing landscape in the world because of the COVID-19 pandemic, each module has been an experience on its own, challenging our capacity to adapt. Nevertheless, a common denominator emerged from this situation: an intense feeling of camaraderie amongst the cohort.
The GEMBA has been an unforgettable experience so far. The pandemic makes everything more challenging and at the same time more meaningful because all those previously trivial and taken-for-granted moments now become rare and valuable opportunities to create memorable stories and friendships. It has been four months since the official start of the programme, and I have somewhat gotten used to this high level of uncertainty and agility!
For those who have already decided on what career path they are looking to transition to, INSEAD does offer many mechanisms to help.
The Leadership Development Programme has really helped us become better leaders.
Most importantly, the EMBA gave me the tools to redefine my career goals.
