Could you share a little why you decided to pursue the MBA, and in particular, the INSEAD MBA?

I decided to enroll at INSEAD because I had been working in Canada for the last seven years and wanted to 1) change careers, 2) change geographies, 3) experience living in Asia

Can you share your thoughts about the class experience, professors, the curriculum so far?

The classroom experience has been incredible, it’s amazing to be surrounded by so many bright people and to be learning from their own experiences.

I have really appreciated that professors are making hard topics very easy to understand.

Where are you located and what are you most looking forward to during your time on the programme?

I am currently located in Fontainebleau and moving to Singapore in January. I’m really looking forward to bringing my IVC start up idea to life in the start up booster course as well as experience living in Asia with such an incredible cohort.

Have you learned any important lessons so far from MBA experience that have been especially useful?

Trust yourself.

Any tips for those who are considering an INSEAD MBA?

INSEAD becomes what you want to make of it, there’s so many opportunities, it’s up to you to define what you want out of your time here.
