Welcome to the INSEAD Centre for Entrepreneurship

The Rudolf and Valeria Maag, INSEAD Centre for Entrepreneurship (ICE) is the catalyst for innovation at INSEAD in entrepreneurship teaching, research and outreach. We also support the INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Initiative.

INSEAD has the largest and the most reputed entrepreneurship faculty of any business school outside the US. We offer the broadest range of entrepreneurship courses, rigorous and rich research on building business in a global world and have one of the strongest entrepreneurship alumni networks in the world.

The role of our team at the Centre is to take these strategic assets to the next level and position INSEAD as the top business school in the world for entrepreneurship by 2015. We are well on our way to achieving this goal.

  • For Students

If you are a current or prospective MBA participant, you may want to check our Entrepreneurship Accelerator - a programme to support the entrepreneurial initiatives of our MBAs. Additionally, the elective courses offered by the Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise during the MBA program can be found here.

The Social Impact Catalyst (SI Catalyst) will provide networking opportunities, events and workshops for those students particularly focused on subjects and careers relating to social entrepreneurship (e.g., starting a social venture, social impact investing, etc.).

If you would like to meet with mentors to receive support for your entrepreneurial project, check the Entrepreneurs-in-Residence or Social Entrepreneurs-in-Residence programme.

  • For Alumni:

The greatest asset of INSEAD is its tremendous network of more than 40,000 alumni. The Centre has worked hard to create a number of entrepreneurship resources dedicated to this robust community:

Many INSEAD alumni are very successful entrepreneurs. You can check their stories in our Leading Entrepreneurs section which is regularly updated.

  • For Outside Stakeholders:

We would like to position INSEAD as the catalyst for “building businesses worldwide”. We have a particular focus on Entrepreneurship in Europe, and Asia where we have our two main campuses. We are also particularly focused on promoting the growth of academic enterprises with technologies and innovations spun off from the best Universities and research institutes worldwide.
