Financing

INVESTING IN YOUR FUTURE

An INSEAD MBA yields a lifetime of dividends, both professionally and personally. Pursuing an MBA, however, is a serious commitment of time and money and this investment needs to be carefully considered and planned by applicants.

To understand the financial obligations required to attend the INSEAD MBA Programme check our MBA Fees & Expenses. It is important to consider your financing options early on, whether in the form of savings, loans or scholarships.

You can begin by seeing if you are eligible to apply for any INSEAD scholarships or MBA loans listed on our website. 

Though the responsibility of financing your year at INSEAD ultimately lies with you, the MBA Financial Aid Office can assist you in planning for your financing for the INSEAD MBA programme.
