INSEAD, the business school for the world, today announced the launch of the new Master in Management (MIM) programme.
Amidst rapid changes in the business landscape, the world needs people who can innovate, create and disrupt. INSEAD has always been at the forefront of innovation in management education, responding to market needs and developing business leaders who can navigate the dynamic landscape. As global business evolves, INSEAD will continue to innovate to transform business and society.
The accelerated 10-month full-time MIM programme will empower the next generation of well-rounded and agile-thinking individuals to make a positive impact in today’s society and deliver value in the digital age.
Urs Peyer, Dean of Degree Programmes at INSEAD, says, “By engaging talented young people, the MIM will contribute to the INSEAD mission to develop responsible business leaders who transform business and society. Our current master programmes are designed for experienced global professionals – from MBAs and participants in our Executive Master in Finance to senior executives in our Executive MBA and Executive Master in Change. The MIM will make the INSEAD educational offering complete by equipping a new group of post-graduate, pre-experience learners with the most relevant knowledge and skills to succeed in today’s complex world and move it in new and exciting directions.”

Students will experience classes that deliver cutting-edge knowledge and learn to apply theory to real-life business situations. Core courses will provide a robust foundation of key management disciplines while experiential practical blocks in the form of company visits, business treks in Asia and Europe will create actionable learning opportunities. Digital electives such as social media analytics, fintech and blockchain will empower students for success in the digital age.

Throughout the MIM journey, the INSEAD Career Development Centre will support students in efforts to achieve their career ambitions and successfully navigate today’s job market.
Katy Montgomery, Associate Dean of Degree Programmes at INSEAD, says, “The INSEAD MIM students will be immersed in a truly global experience alongside international classmates and faculty, travel across continents and gain access to top recruiters and diverse roles in a broad range of industries. Our graduates will be part of an unparalleled alumni network of more than 58,000 influential alumni working in 176 countries across the world.”
Thibault Séguret, Programme Director of the INSEAD Master in Management Programme, says, “Making an impact on the world can be daunting.
The INSEAD MIM will provide our students with the right tools and experience to go where they want to go and do what they want to do. It will be a challenging, enriching and confidence-building experience academically, personally and culturally.”
