I just imagine how my life would have been last year without INSEAD and I believe doing the MBA was one of the smartest choices I could make.
Our Executive Master in Finance (EMFin) Class of 2023 participants started their first module in September 2022 – on campus in Singapore and online. In true INSEAD fashion, the class is extremely diverse with participants joining from 13 countries of residence and hailing from 17 different nationalities.
Welcome to series three of In The Know. Over the course of this academic year, we will continue to discuss the latest career advice like the future of the workplace and inside the mind of a recruiter while also covering many leadership insights featuring episodes on business in the Middle East and managing generation Z. To kick off series three, we are joined by our Associate Dean of Degree Programmes, Katy Montgomery, as we look to build on the start of a new academic year and share what the future looks like for business education.
The modular format of this programme is ideal for me as it allows me to juggle my role as a wife, mother and full-time work.
The EMC is also about changing and improving both how I do things and how I think with regards to how I act.
In August 2021 INSEAD welcomed the Master in Management (MIM) Class of 2022 on the Fontainebleau campus in France. Hailing from 33 countries of residence and 40 nationalities, this cohort consists of 130 students who are embarking together on a 14 to 16-month journey to launch their international careers. Read on below to meet five MIM'22 students, who share more about their backgrounds and why they chose INSEAD.
My biggest takeaway from being there is how profoundly connected with everyone the experience left me and the feeling of anticipation for what’s yet to come.
The MIM gives you a chance to explore in a safe environment and you should really take advantage of it.
The programme may have just started but my head is already brimming with memorable moments.
To begin with, almost every MBA student has a story to tell. However, unlike many MBA aspirants, I decided to go for an MBA 16 years ago, on the evening of April 23, 2005, when my grandfather surprisingly ask me, “What would you like to do in life?". I replied, "An MBA". However, I did not realise then that it would take me another 16 years to finally go on my MBA journey. So why did it take me 16 years and why now? The short answer will be - no time and resources, but it really boils down to right timing.
