Coming from all around the world to share their experiences, expand their network and transform their leadership skills, the INSEAD Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) Class of 2023 and Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA (TIEMBA) Class of 2024 embarked on their journey to new success across our campuses in Singapore, Fontainebleau, Abu Dhabi, and the Tsinghua campus in Beijing.

After nine years of professional experiences across journalism, the government sector and charity, I felt ready for the next level of accelerating my career to create a bigger impact. I have always been curious to learn, and I felt energised by the idea that I can take the questions, reflections and fresh ideas that I’ve accumulated at work over the years into a classroom setting, to freely discuss with other students and learn from them to.
In the minds and experience of the four Middle Eastern graduates we spoke to recently, there is no doubt how an MBA from INSEAD not only rewards it's recipients but also has a significant positive impact on their immediate family and people they work with. This is what drove these four alumni to get together and promote the school to Palestinians, helping them through the application process and financial support where needed, to empower those with commercial capabilities and entrepreneurial resilience, and prepare them to succeed in the business world.
We see the light at the end of the tunnel ... and it is not a train moving in our direction. Quite the opposite, it is a feeling that you get when you are very close to the finish line but you actually don't want to cross it because it is all about the journey itself not so much about the destination. My GEMBA'22 journey started 10 months ago and there are four months to go. The last module was the Electives in July and, without exaggeration, a mind-blowing experience.
I am now 10 months into the GEMBA journey, with only two more modules left to finish it off; and I can’t help but feel that it has gone so fast. Don’t get me wrong, these 10 months have really been a transformational experience; this programme makes you challenge yourself in every possible aspect, which not only made me grow as a better professional, but also as a better person.
"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." - Mark Twain At the Executive MBA level, the end of the Core Modules is like the midpoint in a full marathon. Although we are closer to the finishing line, we are still living with some uncertainties ahead of us.
Hello MIM22, One week (nearly) done – and what a week. It is a true honor to meet you and get to know you, and I can tell you for sure that many are envious of the situation in which you are.
I lived in the US my whole life before landing in Paris three weeks ago to start my MBA programme at INSEAD’s campus in Fontainebleau, France. Some of my friends and coworkers back home in Los Angeles, California had a hard time understanding why I wasn’t interested in going to Stanford, UCLA, or any number of top business schools in sunny California or a short flight away.
Just one more week to launch week! Looking back, it’s been a surreal journey. The first time I browsed through INSEAD’s website was in early 2019. After countless calls with alumni, essay preparations, and mock interviews, I finally got my notice of admission for the MBA Class of 22J. Now it is finally time to embark on this amazing journey, one that I certainly can’t be more excited for. Before that, I thought it would be useful to share some preparation tips that I have collected from seniors and alumni alike.
