Dear Alumni,

As you have experienced for yourself, INSEAD is a truly unique institution. We graduate inspired individuals equipped with sound business knowledge and a strong global mindset. Through the vision laid out by our founders, we have truly become an independent and entrepreneurial business school with an unmatched global outreach and unparalleled diversity of students, executive participants and alumni.

This weekend, I am excited to share my plans with you and look forward to hearing your views. Our Alumni Reunions team has worked hard to put together an incredible programme for you. Besides the Plenary Session that will focus on the MBA programme and our alumni network, our Faculty Forums also will cover important themes relevant to the quickly-evolving business world of today.

Throughout the weekend’s Social and Networking events, your Reunion will provide you with the ideal opportunity to expand your horizons – a chance to not only reconnect with your former classmates, but also to interact with alumni of other classes that hold the same INSEAD spirit.

I look forward to sharing many conversations with you this special weekend and invite you to join me in imagining the incredible potential of INSEAD. With a powerful network of more than 57,254 alumni in 175 countries united, we realise an ambitious future for INSEAD.

Linda Brimm
The Global Cosmopolitan Mindset; Lessons from the New Global Leaders

INSEAD Professor’s New Book explains the unique competencies and complex issues facing multi-national, multi-cultural “citizens of the world. Citing the likes of former U.S. President Barack Obama and the ex-CEO of PepsiCo Indra Nooyi, L.Brimm says that leaders these days benefit from varied life experiences and a broad outlook that helps them compete in the global jobs market. That constant transition can be difficult, but it can also make leaders better able to manage change and rally support from others, she said. "When everything is changing, you have to be able to transition to another place. You have to come to terms with that and find new ways to process things," Brimm told CNBC Make It. "It's an incredible source of resilience."

Overcoming Barriers to Women Leadership

One of the most powerful findings across social sciences is that perception may be different from reality, but nonetheless shapes individuals’ ways of thinking, decision-making, and the macro organizational and social structures. What are some of the powerful perceptions and assumptions we hold about women’ career and leadership roles? For instance, are women less likely to have broader and higher visions, less effective at negotiation, less confident, and less dedicated to career advancement? How do these shared and internalized views impede women’s leadership potential? How can we break such internal hurdles and help foster new norms in our organizations? We will discuss these issues and hope to arrive at a deeper self understanding and some actionable measures to start the transformational process within us! 

Subramanian Rangan
A Moral Theory of the Firm

For much of the 20th century the focus of enterprise has been business performance.  In the 21st century we are seeing more enterprises also pursuing societal progress (this even at some risk to their business performance).  Think for instance of such firms as Tesla (USA), Unilever (Europe), and Natura (Brazil).  Why are more firms trying to integrate performance and progress?  Other than “greenwash,” or “an agency problem with limelight-seeking CEOs,” or long-term value maximization of “doing well by doing good,” is there something new going on here?  In this talk, I will supplement these sociological, behavioral, and economic theories of firm, and outline a "moral theory of the firm."  The exploration will open a window into how the practice and paradigm of business are evolving.  I will discuss implications for executives and entrepreneurs.  Come see how one research and teaching effort at our school is deepening our engagement with the idea of Business as a Force for Good.”

Theodoros Evgeniou
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: What and so What?

Mixing some scientific history of AI and Machine Learning with its past and present applications and implications, the presentation will aim at providing some perspectives on the hype and value of AI as well its potential impact. How does it work? What potential new management questions and challenges does AI raise? Will “it" replace us – and if so, why do we care, and what do we really care about? 

Jennifer and Gianpiero Petriglieri
Loving Work … or Love & Work? The pursuit of meaning and desire in contemporary careers

Once upon a time, most people had separate personal and professional lives. Duty was public and desire, private. Or so the story went. These days, those boundaries have blurred. Most of us aspire to infuse our work with personal meaning and have passion for what we do. We no longer have careers, we have working lives. This session will be about what it takes to live and work that way—and what it might give us. We’ll draw on Gianpiero’s research on turning a working life into a life’s work and on Jennifer’s research on the life cycle of dual career couples. But mostly we’ll do real work, together. You’ll have a chance to read and discuss a case study, share your insights, and work on your questions. In other words, you will be back in class—for real. Just this time, with both of us. Come prepared to work. We hope you’ll end up loving it.

Leading Digital Transformation at TAG Heuer: Swiss Avant Garde in the Digital Era

The Swiss company TAG Heuer, maker of luxury watches, is part of the LVMH group (Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton). CEO Jean-Claude Biver, a true legend in the Swiss watch industry, has to decide whether to launch its first-ever fully connected Swiss watch, manufactured in partnership with Google and Intel. Entering this new market presents an unprecedented challenge: making a watch based on a technology (microprocessors) that the Swiss have not mastered. Is TAG Heuer ready to compete in the digital space? What are the technological, organizational and leadership challenges involved in the digital journey of a traditional Swiss multinational when it partners with Silicon Valley titans like Google and Intel? Which leaderships lessons can we learn from this case?

Theo Vermaelen
Business ethics : a contractual approach

Relations between various stakeholders in an organisation are governed by explicit and implicit contracts. While ideally we would like to eliminate ambiguity through explicit contracts, the problem is that writing and monitoring explicit contracts is costly and may create unintended negative side effects. Hence business ethics defined as respecting implicit contracts may be a more efficient way to control conflicts of interest. Hence in this view ethical behaviour is not about promoting highly subjective values but building a more efficient organisation.
