Lifelong Learning

Leaders today cannot rest on past achievements and a prestigious INSEAD degree to succeed in a rapidly shifting world. They need access to relevant experiences, people and content that will help them stay current and continue to build their knowledge and skills.

Lifelong Learning for Alumni is designed to do just that. Our vision is to establish a global learning community that brings alumni and faculty together and advances business as a force for good.

BlackRock CEO Larry Fink predicts that within the next five years all investors will measure a company’s impact on the environment, society and government to determine its worth. How ready are you – and your organization – to capture and report the non-financial impact of your business?

Join Pavan Sukhdev – former banker, WWF International President and member of INSEAD’s Hoffmann Institute Advisory Board – in a conversation about “Integrated Profit & Loss”: an attempt to capture more of the true cost of business activity.

This webinar will:

  • Introduce you to this new framework used by sustainability leaders around the world;
  • Demonstrate how it can capture businesses’ total impact;
  • Show how it can account for financialnaturalhuman and social capital in different industries;
  • Leave you better equipped to future-proof your organization.

Don’t miss this opportunity and sign up now to understand how to measure total performance in the future.

Blockchain is one of the most transformative technologies of the 21st century. At its core, it offers a radically new principle for organizing transactions and relationships, enabling applications that have the potential to disrupt myriad industries and functions, from commercial contracts (e.g. in real estate or insurance), to supply chains (e.g. tracking of food, diamonds or energy usage) to new types of money (crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin or Facebook’s Libra).

Top 50 Thinker Don Tapscott makes the case that blockchain’s impact on business and society will soon overtake that of big data, the cloud, the social web, mobility, or even artificial intelligence. The mission of his Blockchain Research Institute (BRI) is to prepare business leaders and organisations for the fundamental restructuring of a core part of the economy and society.

In this live webinar, INSEAD’s Deputy Dean Peter Zemsky will discuss with Blockchain Revolution co-authors Don and Alex Tapscott:

  • The evidence that blockchain technology is already redefining how we transact onlineshare ideas, and manage workflows
  • The potential for blockchain technology as a force for good, e.g. by creating effective property rights in poor countries
  • How to effectively leverage blockchain in enterprises and different industries.

Don and Alex argue that, like previous historic technology shifts, the blockchain revolution will create winners and losers. But, if handled right, blockchain technology can usher in a new age of entrepreneurship, empower us to reinvent our institutions for the better, and create a fairer and more prosperous world.
