Covid restrictions have meant that most programmes are delivered virtually, so there’s that sense that you miss out on the social and interpersonal exchanges you get on campus. But in the event, the experience is surprisingly close to being there in person. Our cohort was very small and well structured, and the virtual setting actually gave us time and space to really listen to each other and exchange ideas.
CEO and Co-owner, Orthex Group
It was less natural perhaps to network virtually because of the Covid-19 situation, but those connections were still made efficiently and fluidly. I do believe that going forward, the integration of digital technology will be characteristic of learning and development in general.
Solenne Niedercorn-Desouches, Independent Advisor and Non Executive Director
INSEAD GO-Live exceeded my expectations. It was a week full of inspiration. Our group was very diverse which added new interesting perspectives on the study material during the live sessions/working groups, like it was at campus.
Eric Warners, Corporate Strategist at Port of Amsterdam
When you’re looking to learn dynamically, exchange ideas and build that network, the ideal thing is face to face. But learning online has its own advantages in terms of time management and efficiencies. It might take a little longer to get to know each other, but in fact the networking element is just as possible – it’s just as rich.
Boris Colruyt, CFO of Asia Pacific, Birkenstock
Our professors were brilliant. They know their subject intimately, but they are so adept at making you feel included. At no point do you ever feel bad for not knowing things. They simply engage you in your own learning in a way that makes it feel like a collaboration. It’s like they take out the competitive and bring in the collaborative. The experience is thoroughly empowering.
Liliana Catoja, Executive Board Member at the Banco Internacional de Moçambique
INSEAD faculty and coaches are just wonderful and endlessly supportive, both in the reading and preparation they provide, and in the education they give you. You instantly connect and build your network with your professors – your wisdom network.
Jason Le, Head of Scalable Acquisitions with Google’s Online Partnership Group in APAC
The programme gives you access to really great profiles, both in peers and in faculty. You gain extraordinary insights and real-world examples that you can immediately translate for your own business needs and processes. So you end up applying what you learn very much in a day-to-day dynamic. To put it very simply: with INSEAD, you come in and get what you need.
Hadj Latreche, Distribution Technologies and Manufacturing Digital Transformation Senior leader
INSEAD has given me pause for deep thought and reflection on the importance of our customers and in the need to prioritise them in the context of change,” says Dulanovic. Beyond that, this programme is an affirmation of the ideas and the motivation that I brought. It has given me the insights, the connections, the knowledge and the wind on my back to lead the change that we need to make.
Nenad Dulanovic, Sales Director, Novo Nordisk, Slovakia
The professional organization of this virtual learning course makes sure that, even during the covid-19 pandemic, one can develop its knowledge and skills in this domain in an efficient and interactive way.
Annelies De Cooman, Head of Digital Marketing, KBC Bank
The holistic experience was in a very high standard, that allows you to be fully immersed in the learning experience, connect with the world-class professors and learn the new business trends, in the comfort of your place.
Panos Pitsillides, Strategy and Business Development Director of Greece and Cyprus, Johnson & Johnson, Medical Devices
COVID19 has changes many things the last year and all of us have adjusted in many way. I must say I was surprised about how well the virtual format has been implemented in INSEAD. The sessions had variation, interaction, fun and inspiration. I believe that blended learning will be the standard down the road.
Mette Lindstrøm Lage, Assistant Director, Department for Health Innovation (SINO), Danish Regions, Denmark
GO-Live [offers] basically the same functionality I’d have if I were sitting in the classroom
