When I was packing my luggage and flying back from Beijing in September, I realised how fast time flies. It is already 3 months and 3 modules into the TIEMBA programme. Before long, our class will be finishing the last module, defending a thesis and graduating from a high-ranking EMBA programme.
According to the 2018-2019 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) report, 78.7% of the U.S. population believes that entrepreneurs are held in high regard, and the country has had a record-breaking boom cycle since 2010.

As a finance professional, the ability to evolve with your industry’s changing priorities can make the difference between building a good career and a truly great one.
Dear all, I love observing people. Often, I am looking for inspiration: How are others doing things? Is there anything I can learn from them? Especially in new settings, foreign countries or when I am with people I think highly of. But sometimes, I simply get lost watching and then my brain takes me places.
I’ve always felt that the vibe at INSEAD is like a rapidly growing, brilliant startup. That it’s one year, that it’s unattached to a larger university, that there are three campuses and expanding into America, that the operations feel very lean. Innovation is in our core, and it’s no small coincidence that the founder of our school is also the founder of venture capitalism. The energy is frenetic, everyone is flush with optimism, and seemingly every day is a scramble.
Did you know that as a generation we are creating the highest level of carbon footprint on our planet than any generation before? With today’s great comfort and luxuries come high levels of global emissions. The burning of coal, natural gas and oil for electricity and heat is the largest single source of global greenhouse gas emissions at 25% of all global emissions. Emissions from industry come in at 21%. Surely, as global citizens, we all notice the impact of depleting our world’s resources and slowly we are changing our ways.
Is INSEAD worth the investment? Would you do it if you're earning close to 300k/year in your thirties? Because you are asking this question, perhaps, you want to change something about this 300k salary job. If you do... the question you might want to ask yourself is whether what you do now fulfils you, makes you happy and would you do it for as long as you can? This is where you need to start.
The INSEAD MBA portfolio of currently more than 15 entrepreneurship electives are designed to enable you to match the courses to your career goals. Learn how these help our alumni join high growth ventures, lead entrepreneurial projects within corporations and focus on social ventures.
