Rankings, Achievements & Awards

As Dean of INSEAD, I am often asked what makes INSEAD unique - and more recently, what has contributed to our school’s rise in the rankings.

Our goal is to develop value-driven business leaders with a global mind-set. INSEAD’s multi-campus format, unmatched diversity and proven academic and research excellence contribute to this formula for success. Our highly personalised and comprehensive career services also yield outstanding results. Finally, our global alumni network offers reach and depth beyond any other top business school.


In today’s fast-moving, global business environment, the INSEAD Advantage becomes increasingly clear.
