Here is a sample of what participants have to say about the value of the Competitive Strategy Programme.

The course was excellent, it was straight to the point, and I got what I was looking for as a learning opportunity. GO-Live functioned beautifully, almost as if it's been alive, and I was spared travelling.

The competitive strategy programme is pragmatic and holistic in terms of its content and coverage. The programme provides the right frameworks and a practitioner's point of view towards today's pressing strategic imperatives across industries. The programme also provides the right playground for discussion and perspectives with a diverse cohort across industries and geographies. Furthermore, Prof. Cool's subject matter expertise and hands-on approach are definitely a value add.

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.

I wanted to be surrounded by highly qualified and competitive people with valuable insights on the subject matter. Did I get that? Yes. Many of our classmates were business owners, C-level executives, or people with the ability to make a difference within their company. The atmosphere was definitely right.

I wanted to come to a renowned institute that offered a programme with the right balance between theory and (best) practice in a relatively short and condensed time frame. The expectations were indeed met. Not only did the content offer exactly what I was looking for – a practical and workable framework as guidance for our strategy project; furthermore, I found Professor Cool very competent, inspiring and pragmatic.

Danielle Bazuin, Legamaster International BV, The Netherlands
