When considering whether to apply to the INSEAD MBA, you may be concerned that you might be lacking in experience compared to those that have been working in the corporate sector, financial services or as consultants. We discuss the benefits differences in knowledge and experience can bring to your career and how these experiences will give you the skills you will need to successfully manage diversity in your future.
Our guests today
