It’s not just cutting-edge financial and accounting knowledge that participants gain on the INSEAD Executive Master in Finance (EMFin). INSEAD’s Career Development Centre (CDC) also supports EMFin participants with a wide array of powerful resources, helping them take their careers to new heights. We asked three INSEAD alumni to share their stories.
I am a Vice President of the Private Infrastructure Asia Pacific Investment team for Partners Group. I was motivated to pursue the Executive Master in Finance (EMFin) programme because I wanted to equip myself with the knowledge and experience to be able to drive my firm's infrastructure investment in Asia in the future. I was drawn to INSEAD's small classroom interactions where faculty and participants could spend hours debating and talking about business issues and how each of us may approach the same issue differently because of our diverse backgrounds.

Starting my journey at INSEAD came with the typical uncertainties; expectations of workload, marking schemes and competitive environments, to name a few. Knowing that I would not be able to study with my classmates in person was an added ambiguity. What I have learnt during my time over the past eight months of the programme, is that collaborating on group projects binds people together quickly.
The programme provided me with not only the technical knowledge but also the networks with my batch mates and industry experts.

Early on in my career, I had always dreamed about pursuing an MBA at a top-ranked university. INSEAD had always been on my radar, but over the course of my experience I became more interested in Finance rather than general management and wanted to continue growing my career within that field.
