The ISEP dates for 2015:

15–20 November 2015 in Fontainebleau, France
29 November - 4 December 2015 in Singapore


INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Programme combines the deep academic knowledge of INSEAD’s faculty with practical application. Renowned speakers, live case studies, and analysis of the most current issues and trends in the field create a platform to examine the complex issues and challenges facing social entrepreneurs. 

Sessions are structured to promote a lively exchange among a diverse group of participants, including many award winning entrepreneurs selected through our partnership with organisations such as Ashoka, The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship and UnLtd.

This programme delivers an invigorating blend of business fundamentals, strategy concepts for social enterprises, and leadership skills; It offers the how and why of social business, in a setting that emphasises innovation and practical application. It is designed to help entrepreneurs grow their social ventures and improve their effectiveness and social impact. 

Equally important, ISEP creates a forum in which social entrepreneurs exchange their experience and knowledge with a peer group of some of the leading innovators in the field.

In 2008 ISEP added a new program offering on INSEAD’s Singapore Campus in response to the growing demand from Asia. This expansion will also accelerate the development of new cases and materials oriented to the dynamic growth of social entrepreneurship in the region.

Thanks to the generous support of Banesto and Apax Partners, we offer financial assistance to innovative and talented leaders from parts of the world where even the reduced fees of our Programme may be an obstacle.

“The INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Programme gave me an opportunity to take a little distance from the work that Gram Vikas is doing and view it more objectively and strategically. This reflection was possible because of the refreshing approach to teaching and handling of the case studies used.The atmosphere in the classroom was charged up and conducive for learning as the participants were experienced people with a mature, professional approach. It was indeed good for me and for my organisation to have participated in this programme in Singapore."
Joseph Madiath, ISEP 4 - Singapore, Executive Director, GRAM VIKAS, India

“The INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Programme in Fontainebleau brought together a diverse representation of case studies and learning from a cross section of relevant businesses and organisations which were extremely beneficial in helping me to understand how to make my own business more succesful. The teaching was personal, passionate and supportive. I highly reccomend it.”
