Vegard Vik, MBA '10J

Co-founder and CFO of Kolonial.no and Co-founder of Hjemmelegene

"INSEAD was a truly transformational experience for me personally. Coming with a business degree and consulting background, I felt a two year MBA would be redundant, so I was delighted to join INSEAD for an intense 12 months. With its high paced academic profile and its generous social life engaging with people from all corners of the world, I was immediately blown away. It was a place very open to discuss bold ideas, and it fostered an entrepreneurial spirit. In particular through its legendary "Your First Hundred days" course which puts you in a real life setting as an entrepreneur and business owner and tests your judgement and problem solving in unexpected ways. It spurred my interest into entrepreneurship well before it became cool to be a "Founder" in Norway.”
