Preparing Financial Leaders
INSEAD prides itself in having a world-class faculty, close links to the international business community and a participative teaching style. Our Executive Master in Finance (EMFin) combines these characteristics with a tailored programme that will hone your leadership and management skills as well as deepen your knowledge of the sector.
Designed for experienced finance professionals to accelerate careers without taking an extended leave of absence, coursework for the Executive Master in Finance (EMFin) is divided into modules which happen three to four months apart, providing ample time to implement skills learnt in the classroom to your workplace.
The programme is primarily taught in the Asia Campus in Singapore, a global and regional financial hub with a progressive financial market.
“Today’s executives need to have the ability to navigate the new world of work and add value to their organisations while engaging people in a way that delivers results.”
INSEAD's EMFin provides a much greater depth of finance skills than you would in an MBA, while offering the leadership and management education you would not find in a typical finance degree. Our goal is to prepare financial leaders for the next level so that they can drive the corporate finance and investment management industries of the future.

Thanks to EMFin, I now know what “Value” really is, and how to benchmark any strategic or operational decision against it.
In the end, the EMFin appealed to me more because it is a part-time programme, so the opportunity cost is lower as compared to a full-time programme.
The programme provided me with not only the technical knowledge but also the networks with my batch mates and industry experts.
