INSEAD Singapore – International Management in Asia Program

Despite more than two decades of globalisation, differences between countries and their markets is still a major stumbling block for executives venturing abroad. CEW is pleased, therefore, to offer a scholarship for a senior woman leader to attend the International Management in Asia Pacific (IMAP) program at INSEAD, Singapore in 2017.

About the program

IMAP is the leading senior-level strategic management program focusing on Asia. It’s designed to help experienced managers beat the ‘liability of foreignness’ – and gain the edge on the competition. The program will recharge participants’ strategic management skills, challenge their thinking and help them gain a holistic perspective of business operations across multiple Asian countries. They will also acquire a better understanding of how to devise and implement competitive strategies for growing or expanding their businesses in the region. For more information about the program, please visit INSEAD.
