Dear Alumni,

Over five and ten years ago, you gave us your trust by joining INSEAD Executive MBA programme.
Now, with 1547 GEMBA alumni, 359 TIEMBA alumni and 235 current GEMBA participants, 37 current TIEMBA participants, the Executive MBA is growing as an important alumni community in its own right.
We are especially pleased to welcome you back to campus for your 5th and 10th year reunion on Friday July 13th in the evening and Saturday July 14th all day.

This will be an opportunity to meet each other, catch up with some of the faculty that impacted you, and meet the current EMBA participants.

I believe that a close relation between alumni and INSEAD is critical for the long-term success of the EMBA programme. You are our best ambassadors, and some of you are helping the school in marketing efforts, admissions, and extending our reputation in the world. When you succeed, we succeed. I hope that you will be able to join us and enjoy the activities that we have planned for you. I look forward to personally welcome each of you, and to discussing with you how we can further strengthen our relationship to Executive MBA alumni.

Best wishes,

Urs Peyer
INSEAD Dean of Degree Programmes

3:30Portfolio Careers
The idea of combining several roles into a "portfolio" career is an attractive one for many people; especially for those who need flexibility. In reality however, piecing together a sustainable portfolio of work is challenging. Come and join the panel discussion on how to maintain and enrich a portfolio career in areas as diverse as board/NED positions and entrepreneurship.
