INSEAD MiM – Academics and Curriculum

The MiM Program consists of 5 academic periods of 8 weeks duration. Each academic period concludes with an exam and professional development component. Out of the 8 weeks in each period, teaching and career/skill workshops take up 5 weeks, followed by 2 weeks of experiential practical blocks.

Students get to apply what they learnt in the 5 weeks in these practical blocks to further reinforce concepts learnt in core courses. There are 12 core courses and students can choose from up to 10+ electives in the final period of the program.

Here is an image which provides a succinct overview of the curriculum.


The program includes 4-6 months of professional exposure where graduates join organizations either as interns or full-time employees. This allows graduates to build work experience and evaluate the industry they have joined.

INSEAD MiM – Careers and Salary

Since the first cohort of the program will start in September 2020, currently there is not much data available about career prospects and salary for graduates. However, if the INSEAD MBA program is anything to go by, the MiM program should provide graduates a solid foundation and effective take-off in terms of pursuing their dream careers.

The career development center at INSEAD partners with students at every stage of the job search process. They engage with students through career courses, electives, workshops and individual sessions. The CDC also organizes career treks to various locations throughout the year.
