The best year of my life


This review is for INSEAD

Program January Intake Class of

Class of 2015

Experience during the program

The INSEAD MBA program is overwhelmingly intensive in all aspects, but is truly transformational.
The fact that students come with 5-10 year of experience from very different markets and industries add depth to the in-class discussions and changes the way of thinking.
The school encourages students to rethink their capabilities, and achieve success by following their inner passion.
And the community / networking capabilities is simply incredible.

A note to future applicants targeting US as a potential job market: this is not the best school to work in the US, but it definitely is the best school to become a truly global leader.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Perhaps similarly to other schools, the vast majority of professors are good or exceptionally good, but a few (especially younger ones) are less impressive and efficient in their teaching. But the school is paying close attention to the student feedback and tried to maintain high quality.

About job placement process

It is much harder to get an internship (and consequently a job) in Investment Banking for January intake: program starts after the hiring cycle is already over.
