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.
The INSEAD MBA Class of July 2024 started their journey on the Fontainebleau and Singapore campuses in August 2023. Read on below to meet some members of this class, to find out more about their stories, their motivations for joining INSEAD and their aspirations for the future. "INSEAD was the ideal place for me to learn, develop my leadership skills, and be challenged and inspired by people from all over the world."
I wanted to be in a place where I could be exposed to various global business perspectives. With 66 different nationalities in the 24'J class, I think INSEAD meets this goal quite well.
The INSEAD MBA aligns with my future goals of transitioning from being in a purely digital product management role to a more business-oriented role.
I chose the INSEAD MBA for its strong European connections, promising ROI, and commitment to quality learning and networking.
I didn’t want a continuation of “work” but a hard shift that gave me the time to reconnect and rediscover my whole self; while tangibly advantaging myself on my return.
INSEAD will equip me with the business education and will provide me with a network of high achievers.
INSEAD offers many opportunities for students to pursue their passions and interests outside of the traditional corporate path.
