From the Point of the ignition to the final drive, The Point of journey is not to arrive. When I decided to do my MBA, with a bit of Google search and a few phone calls, I knew that INSEAD was the school I wanted to join. I am one of those few who applied only to INSEAD. Here's my INSEAD journey timeline: 21st April 2017 : GMAT day.
Founded by INSEAD Alum Romain Sautrau ('12D), Start-up Farmers is a venture capital fund and startup accelerator based in Paris, France, that is dedicated to solving the challenges of feeding a growing population in an environmentally sustainable way. It works to support entrepreneurs based in France, Western Europe, and Israel who have innovative disruptive solutions for the future of agriculture.
The first time I ever heard of an MBA was when I was 13 and my brother was showing me around his university. "There's the Teachers College. And there's the Law School - many top lawyers come out of there. And that building houses the MBA programme, which is famous for producing some of the world's most evil people." OK, so I'm not getting an MBA, I thought at the time. At least not from THERE. (Out of respect for the many fine people who went 'there', I’ll leave out the name.)
As a graduate of the INSEAD Class of December 2016, I can truly say that your time at INSEAD is transformational.
This week marks the return to classes on a different campus (Fontainebleau), as well as the end of a really exciting summer both on the professional and personal level. I spent the last eight weeks in Manila working to start a mobile application business in the Philippines. I have never visited this country and had no relation to it whatsoever.
