INSEAD was my dream school because of its practical lessons, international experience, and consulting expertise.
Apart from the academic rigour, my journey at INSEAD is punctuated by various extracurricular activities, each contributing uniquely to my holistic growth.
I enjoy how the lectures are always drawing on current news and relevant companies and think the content is taught in a very intuitive manner.
I caught up with a current Master in Management student and asked him to share his student experience in the INSEAD MIM right now! Meet Cesar and get a feel for a typical MIM day: Hi! My name is Cesar Beulen. I am a Belgian student enrolled in the MIM’24 programme, and I would like to share an average day as an INSEAD MIM’24 student! Today is a Thursday, which means no classes today!
These past three months in the little town of Fontainebleau have been a whirlwind. Interestingly, it's only been five weeks since we began our MBA classes, yet it feels like five months have passed. This sentiment is not uncommon at INSEAD. If there's anything that INSEAD makes you realise, it's the value of time, compelling you to hone in on what truly matters. An often-cited metaphor is that absorbing the wealth of knowledge and experience here is like trying to drink water from a firehose; the flow truly is intense and unyielding.
At the beginning of P5, the last period in the INSEAD MIM curriculum, I wrote the below editorial for our weekly MIM newsletter. As we approached the end of the programme, I felt inspired to give a huge shoutout to each and every one of my classmates. After all, INSEAD is known for its intense, yet incredible MIM programme and we had aced it so incredibly well together! 1. #BestYear
INSEAD has a strong focus on sustainability and this aligns strongly with my personal beliefs.
I believe in the power of diverse interactions and learning from different cultures, and INSEAD seemed like a natural fit for this vision.
The first week of the INSEAD MBA was definitely nothing like I had anticipated. One of the first things that hits you is the parties. I know. I know. Everyone talks about it, but no matter how many times you hear it, it’s not enough – brace yourself :). You can successfully party everyday if you want to. Every. Day.
INSEAD offers many opportunities for students to pursue their passions and interests outside of the traditional corporate path.
