chatelJoin the INSEAD Alumni Association Switzerland’s Geneva Chapter on an outdoor family excursion to  one of the Jura peaks, near Montricher and L’Isle, for a picture perfect view of Lac Leman, followed by lunch at one of the Jura region’s charming Chalet d’Alpage.

 

It is an e024_Chatelasy 90 minute hike from the Col de Mollendruz (1184 m) parking area, to the cross atop Châtel (1432m). Lunch is at the traditional Buvette de Châtel known for its Jura mountain cuisine. (For specialties of the Buvette, see website.) After lunch we follow the same route down. Good shoes are mandatory, as it can get slippery in the woods.

For families with small children not able to climb from Col du Mollendruz, there is an access road to the Buvette de Châtel, approx. 1 km after the pass on the left. “Châtel” is signposted. From the parking area it is a ten minute walk to the Croix de Chatel.

Tech Giants Attract INSEAD’s Latest Grads

Earlier this year eFinancial News reported that newly minted MBAs were rejecting finance in favor of other sectors, referring to data from 2012. The trend continues this year, and INSEAD is no exception. While McKinsey, Boston, and Bain continue to attract the greatest numbers, companies like Google, Amazon, Samsung, and Microsoft are now in the top 10, according to the latest data from INSEAD. For example, Amazon hired 36 new INSEAD MBA grads, and Microsoft hired 18. The full report is available from INSEAD in PDF.

burkibannerThis year we will mark Global INSEAD Day, the annual celebration of INSEAD across continents, with our annual general meeting followed by a dynamic presentation by Georges Burki on September 11th.

The demand for old master violins is phenomenal with price trends defying typical economic cgidycles. Is investment rational? Are the old masters’ instruments really superior to today’s? Georges Burki, a professional violinist, in addition to being a private equity professional, will provide you with his answers, discuss the drivers, and demonstrate the dilemma in a dynamic one hour presentation.

Get ready to test your ability to discern between a million dollar violin and one made recently in China!
