How do you know if the INSEAD EMBA is the right one for you? You will discover that the INSEAD EMBA programme has many outstanding features, the most important ones being:
The INSEAD Executive MBA focuses on three key developmental objectives.
The GEMBA leverages INSEAD's three hubs: in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The choice of the Asia, Europe and Middle East sections offer a convenient format for the participants based in these regions while also providing a truly global experience. The 3 sections come together as a global cohort for the second half of the programme.
The modular programme is structured in two key phases: Business Fundamentals and Managerial Practices. Because GEMBA participants alternate between their professional responsibilities and the programme, the aim is to apply what is learned on the programme directly into day-to-day practice on the job.
Throughout the entire programme, there is a Leadership Development Process (LDP). Emphasis is placed on dimensions of leadership. This specific integrated curriculum, LDP, helps participants identify and develop their own leadership style, and progress though reflection and exchange.
Business Fundamentals: the focus is the mastery of key management disciplines. There is a concentration of core courses, in addition to the choice of some elective courses.
Managerial Practices: the focus is on managerial practices and developing a strategic mindset. Through the Key Management Challenges (KMC), participants will be exposed to a multidisciplinary approach. The KMCs deal with broad issues of relevance to multiple constituencies and to various functional aspects of the business.
Projects constitute a significant part of the programme. They provide the opportunity to apply many of the programmeís concepts and to debate and convince colleagues in a group setting. Projects are real and will deal with current business issues. Projects address an issue that a company is willing to open for investigation. The project process will last over four months.
On-campus modules - Throughout the modular programme, there are 12 weeks of on-campus, in-residence modules, in Fontainebleau, France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi. In addition to the on-campus work, there is approximately five weeks of off-campus assignments.
The GEMBA is a degree programme and represents a major commitment on the part of the participants.
Prospective candidates fill in an online application form and send it to the INSEAD Executive MBA Admissions office, based in Fontainebleau, France.
Tsinghua University in Beijing and INSEAD are running a dual degree EMBA programme, the first programme of its kind combining international business education with an Asia focus.
