INSEAD

In the magazine’s surveys of the Class of 2011, BusinessWeek picked up some static. As one grad told the magazine, “The professors could have perhaps cut back a little on the theory and encouraged more discussion – although I acknowledge that this may be difficult to do in relatively big classes.”

Added another graduate of the program: “Career services was not particularly geared to helping EMBAs in career transition. Some great information sessions were provided but more support on executive placement (as being provided for MBAs) could be beneficial to some of us. A large part of the ROI for an EMBA participant especially if they are self-sponsored is in the ability to secure a role in the next rung of the organization or to move to a larger role outside their existing company. For those of us outside Europe, I feel these services are not as well put together to benefit overseas graduates. Even though at the EMBA level, a lot of this movement is done through networking and our own industry contacts – no harm with more help in this area.”
