One of the most common questions our recruitment team helps to answer every day is whether applicants should consider the Master in Management (MIM) or MBA programme.
On 23 May 2019, INSEAD officially announced the launch of the Master in Management (MIM) programme, with the first intake starting in Fontainebleau in September 2020.
Help! What programme should I apply for? I get this question every day, but before you read on, keep in mind three critical points:
After many years in student recruiting, I see the same errors, year after year. Here is a shortlist to help you avoid making these same mistakes in your application.
Before it was cool, my father was an entrepreneur, and although he did not single-handedly invent the “nomad economy”, he certainly applied the concept of taking on new professional challenges every two years, sometimes it felt like every two weeks. For me, that meant constant change: new towns, new schools and new friends.
INSEAD’s Master in Management (MIM) is designed to empower the next generation of well-rounded, agile-thinking and innovative individuals who are ready to make a positive impact in today's society. The Admissions Team is looking for people with intellectual curiosity, personal qualities to contribute to the many activities at INSEAD and a desire to stretch themselves in a rigorous academic programme.
Do you enjoy working with people and solving problems in a professional environment? If so, a career in business might appeal to you, and you might be surprised about how rewarding and flexible this career path can be. But what exactly do we mean by ‘business’? To begin with, every company needs professionals to operate efficiently in areas such as finance, sales, marketing, human resources and more, and broadly speaking, pursuing any of these fields is considered as working in business.
INSEAD’s history is rooted in using business as a force for good. Founded in 1957, after World War II, INSEAD was created with the vision that business could bring together the countries in Europe to promote peace and prosperity. The school provides a transformative experience with the belief that we can transform students, who can transform business, who can transform the world. That transformation is more important now than ever.
The 19Js are going into recruitment season, the 19Ds are preparing for their internships, and the very air on campus is tense but buzzing. I feel this is the right time to write about asking for and offering help – a critical part of the essence of INSEAD. “How do you randomly reach out to people and ask them for advice? It isn’t that easy after all, right?” a prospective candidate rhetorically asked me at a recent INSEAD admissions event. The thing is though, it is that easy; and INSEAD makes it easier still.
