INSEAD students love the experience of shopping for fresh and organic produce from Fontainebleau farmer's market. We can find a diverse variety of vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, cheese, bread, flowers, and much more! For students coming from big cities, in particular, buying food directly from local farmers is a very exciting new experience, which also allows us to breathe the fresh Fonty air on a beautiful Sunday!
Coming back from a six-month exchange in Australia and a six-month internship with Clarins in New York as a 2018 Warwick Business school student, I still wasn’t certain about what I would do after graduation. Unsure of the path to take, I decided that applying to a Master’s degree would give me an additional edge as well as more time to make up my mind, gather more information on different opportunities, and become more competitive in a world where most people have Master’s degrees.
The main reason I chose INSEAD was the school’s ambition to make the world a better place.
Season 1: First Half, We Fall Leap years and I have always had a somewhat tempestuous relationship… oddly bittersweet.
The “Circuit Breaker” song project came together as the result of several experiences that I believe are characteristic of an MBA year at INSEAD:
It might be strange to imagine the MBA as a place for failures when it’s usually associated with success. After all, many of us are hoping that forgoing a year of work experience, paying not only a tuition fee but the opportunity cost of lost wages, will be worth the career growth that results from earning an MBA.
Our cohort is a special one, which makes for an unforgettable and meaningful MBA experience. Although we are in lockdown, we are getting so much support from the school, professors, and students who are continuously committed to alleviating the negative impact on the learning experience at INSEAD.
One never forgets the delicious taste of freedom. For me, it was in the form of pizza. Fresh from the oven, topped with salami, olives, and cheese. Why pizza? Because that was my final dine-in meal, right before COVID-19 forced France into lockdown.
