After years out of school, how hard is it to adjust to an intensive programme such as the INSEAD GEMBA?
Returning to an intense learning environment such as the INSEAD GEMBA, after many years in business, certainly means adjustment and a major time commitment. But it is also a source of renewed inspiration and energy, a real life-changing experience. To make it work, you need to be prepared to invest time and energy in the people and the programme.
Before applying, we suggest that you try the simple “3Ps test” below:
Do you have the full support of your manager and colleagues?
Even if your company is supporting you financially or with unpaid leave, is everyone aware that there is absolutely no flexibility about the dates you will be away?
Will you have the full support of your family or partner?
Are they aware how long you will be away? Are practical arrangements, such as additional childcare, in place?
Have you fully researched the format of the GEMBA and compared it with other EMBA programmes?
Are you sure this will work for you and your circumstances?
