Wow, what a great week at the CTAM INSEAD program! The professors were consistently engaging, thought-provoking and leaders in their fields. The materials were tailored to our industry, so I came away with many ideas for my job and my company. While I already had an MBA, there was no repetition – the courses were all relevant and complementary. It was hard work, but I feel very lucky that I had the opportunity to attend!

“I attended the inaugural CTAM Europe Executive Education Programme at INSEAD and found it an excellent programme that was really focused on the needs of Senior Executives from across our industry, on both the supply and provider side.

What a fantastic program, well-orchestrated, high quality professors and content. Really, my compliments for putting together this week for us, very very valuable.

Virginia Lee, Director of Communications, Cable Europe

Given that this is a programme devised by the world’s leading business school, I was expecting it to be impressive. But it really exceeded all my expectations.
It’s carefully crafted to take participants on a journey of thinking which challenges not just our perceptions of the industry, but of our own roles within it. Teaching? It felt more like having the privilege of participating in a series of personalised Ted Talks. Just as valuable was the opportunity to meet participants from a wide range of disciplines, and together look at issues from every point of the value chain. If you have the chance to take part in this programme, grab it with both hands!

The Executive Education programme offered an extremely broad curriculum in just one incredible week. I was challenged and inspired in equal measure and embraced the opportunity to engage with professionals from my industry. The group work and class debates illuminated the fast pace of change happening across sectors of the media, and armed us with the right resources to tackle this evolution. The faculty were able to bring complex topics to life; and their expertise offered real world insight into the digital challenges cable and television companies face. I finished the course with concrete examples of how to apply what I’d learnt to my own organisation, valuable insight into the future of the industry and a renewed passion for what I do.

The programme was excellent. I’d expected it to be an interesting week, but was impressed not just by the quality of both the subject matter and delivery but also the audience engagement that the lectures generated. Further, teamwork and class participation can often be stilted and contrived, but here the interaction was engaged and fluid throughout the week. It was eye opening and sobering in parts and I would thoroughly recommend the week to anyone in the industry.

A week well spent debating and discussing the implications of the world beyond 2020 for our businesses, and for us as leaders. The professors, peers and thought provoking content made this a top notch experience. I have come out with fresh perspectives and renewed energy to tackle the challenges ahead. I’d expect no less from a top institution like INSEAD of course ! Well done to the entire team for putting this program together!

The INSEAD CTAM Europe programme was an incredible experience. The quality of the professors, the standard of teaching, the interactive group teaching all made it an invaluable experience with insight and learning that can be applied to your working life.

I feel, without doubt, a stronger leader as a result of the course. The cohort was also fantastic and the programme offered a wonderful opportunity to learn from other business leaders. It was also a wonderful experience to spend time on the INSEAD campus in the beautiful setting of the forest.

The food was excellent and the programme of wine tasting, forest walking and fine dining made the whole week a truly valuable and unforgettable experience.

I would not hesitate to recommend this programme to anyone looking to take their business learning to the next level.

Pablo Guaglianone, Regional VP, Sales, ARRIS

The CTAM Europe INSEAD programme is a very well thought through and structured training, a great refresher of some key business topics in the area of Finance, Marketing and Business Organization. Up-to-date to make it very relevant, to us and to this day and age, touching on the latest trends around digitalization and the impact of the new economy on companies and on people.

There is a good balance of topics, with enough depth to make it useful but also inclusive for people with different backgrounds. There is big emphasis on what we take back for the company, but also to ourselves as individuals. The faculty, all 4 of them, have been of outstanding quality. And the participants as well. Beyond what we learned in class, it was a privilege for me as I was exposed to the issues that affect our industry and our customers.

A great value add was the networking and the possibility to develop strong personal relationships with colleagues in our industry

I have highly recommended the program to other colleagues in ARRIS and to the people responsible for people development in the company.

The CTAM Europe EMP is a great experience. An ambitious and carefully tailored program, excellent professors and the outstanding physical framework of INSEAD is a combination second to none. On top of that, the sector specific focus and the intimate group of industry peers guarantees an output which is highly relevant to your actual line of work.

The CTAM Europe Executive Education Programme at INSEAD was the most inspiring thing I have experienced in a while! I give credit not only to the vast, forward-looking knowledge and delivery excellence of the professors, but also to the diversity of the class members, some of the highest ranking professionals from the Media and Telecommunications industry. This combination fuelled interesting discussions and debates that eventually led to a good amount of practical, innovative ideas that could be implemented back at home.

Maria Kernen, Vice President, Sand Cherry Associates

I struggle to identify the highlight of my experience. There were so many unforgettable moments. The opportunity to be in the classroom with leaders from the full spectrum of cable industry companies and countries was priceless. The professors were insightful, inspiring and challenging. The INSEAD campus and town of Fontainebleau were beautiful. The week was filled with dinners, outings and adventures. I left with what I hope are lifelong friendships and a slew of mind-expanding insights into the future of not only the cable industry, but work as a whole. I wholeheartedly recommend CTAM Europe’s Executive Management program at INSEAD.

The programme was fantastic. I did expect it to be as such but it honestly exceeded my expectations. It was incredible to meet with such experts in the field and discuss issues and opportunities in the telecom industry. The programme was also very well structured and all of the content was very relevant. I would not have one thing to complain about and I highly recommend the CTAM INSEAD Executive Management Programme to anyone who would like to develop personally and become a better leader.
