Can you tell me a fun fact about yourself?

I have traveled to 124 countries so far.

So, what made you decide to pursue an EMBA, and why did you choose INSEAD?  

The prestige of the university and the ability to have frameworks of doing my professional and entrepreneurial work.

If you were to describe your experience in one sentence, what would it be?

My INSEAD experience so far has been entrepreneurial, curious, and driven.

Has the EMBA helped you in your career so far?  

The EMBA has provided me with a promotion, created personal brand value that has attracted a VC to name me a Venture Partner and another to put me on their investment committee.

All this whilst I am still on the programme, with other opportunities I had to decline.

What are your thoughts about the multi-campus experience?

It was the programme’s major draw, but I have not yet experienced it due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, unfortunately. 

Could you tell us more about the Leadership Development Programme experience?

It has been a great way to be better aware of myself, my strengths and how I am perceived by others.

What advice would you give to someone who might be interested in pursuing an INSEAD Masters programme?

It is time-consuming, so plan your time wisely.
