Rediscover yourself. Inspire others.
The INSEAD Executive Master in Change (EMC) is a degree programme unlike any other. Spanning over 18 months and eight modules of three to four days, it takes you deep into the basic drivers of human behaviour and the hidden dynamics of organisations.
Integrating business education with a range of psychological disciplines, the programme enables you to understand yourself and others at a fundamental level – and to use that knowledge to create more effective organisations.
Whether you are an HR professional, a coach, a consultant or an executive seeking new ways to make an impact on your organisation, this programme offers you not simply a prized degree from one of the world’s leading business schools but a life-changing intellectual and emotional experience.
Creating Reflective Change Agents
Discover the Executive Master in Change (EMC) through the eyes of four alumni - a former investment banker, a consultant, a headhunter and a group CFO. How did they experience this intensive learning journey together, and how did it transform their personal and professional lives?
Our goal is to develop scholar-practitioners, with ‘night vision’ and a deeper understanding of what goes on below the surface in themselves and others, in order to be more effective in their roles."
Professor Erik Van de Loo, Programme Director

Professor Michael Jarrett, Programme Director
Developing the capacity to remain active and effective in the whirl of daily life requires the paradoxical ability to observe ourselves from an external perspective. One of the goals of the programme is to foster the development of both perspectives – in the game and on ‘the balcony’ at the same time.
