Just like many of our students will be doing in the coming months, I moved to Singapore not so long ago myself. I had travelled around the world before, including a number of visits to Singapore. But as you know, coming to live in a place is different than visiting as a tourist for a week. If you’re anything like me, you may have moments where your feelings on coming to Singapore may range from excited to apprehensive, so here are some suggestions for you to think about as you begin your adventure.
From the very beginning of the programme, the INSEAD life might feel like a Michelin-starred all-you-can-eat buffet: an endless cycle of high-calibre company presentations, keynote speeches, networking cocktails and interesting conversations with brilliant classmates and professors.
In August 2022 we welcomed the new Master in Management (MIM) Class of 2023 on the INSEAD Fontainebleau campus. As the restrictions from the pandemic have eased, it has been an especially joyful start of the academic year at the Business School for the World, and our MIM students dove right into the whirl of studies, clubs and career development activities. The INSEAD MIM is more than a programme, it is a journey that starts with who you are, and leads to what you want to achieve.
INSEAD is an equal opportunity and inclusive for anyone regardless of region or background.
I am looking forward to further immersing myself in this new environment to learn skills that are completely foreign to my undergraduate discipline.
Whether you want to talk to similar profiles or learn about new career paths, the best way to know INSEAD is by connecting with students, alumni and staff.
The INSEAD Master in Management (MIM) is one of the most competitive programmes in the world. But don't let that intimidate you! With a little hard work and the right approach, you can definitely increase your chances of getting accepted. Here are some tips on how to do just that.
I applied to INSEAD specifically because of the diverse and international environment, which reflected the type of setting I want to work in in the future.
If you're someone with a sense of initiative and a desire to create change, INSEAD offers you endless opportunities to get involved.
One of the core values that INSEAD teaches you is how to operate in teams and how to act as a leader, and these are qualities that I believe you will keep with you for the rest of your life and are the key to success.
