During my undergraduate studies, I had the chance to spend one semester in Singapore in 2018. Every day, I would pass by INSEAD’s campus, and would tell myself: “Someday, I will be part of the INSEAD community”. At the time, the MIM programme had not been announced yet. Fast forward to June 2019, I read online that INSEAD was launching its pioneering MIM programme.
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.
On 1 September 2020 we welcomed the pioneering INSEAD Master in Management class on the beautiful Fontainebleau campus.
To get a head start for a great management career in today’s business world, you need more than just a solid foundation in business. You will need an edge in both technology and people skills. To truly make an impact, you must also understand the world's most pressing issues, and how business and society must innovate to be a force for good.
I am looking forward to learning from my colleagues and working with the careers team at INSEAD!
I chose the INSEAD MIM because it offered me a unique fusion of management studies, technology and sustainability, exactly what I needed.
I look forward to the one million possibilities that will start to shape my future experience at INSEAD.
They say that at INSEAD, everyone is a minority, which I found distinct from other programmes.
If you are a graduate or current student in a non-business major like liberal arts, in my case for example, you might also be the only one in your department to be looking at applying for a Master in Management (MIM). This fact only affected me once I realised that a large number of candidates to MIM programmes actually come from business backgrounds, or at least with business-related internships in their pocket. There is no need, however, to panic about being different.
INSEAD offers me a chance to study in global campuses, to learn with students from global backgrounds and to seek career opportunities globally—making it hard to say no to this amazing programme!
