 The diversity in the INSEAD classroom is unparalleled and this fact alone creates the magical environment.

"The diversity in the INSEAD classroom is unparalleled and this fact alone creates the magical environment where knowledge, perceptions, beliefs are brought from all over the world in heated debates that create the sense that students are learning from experiences well beyond the classroom. I am humbled by the knowledge and the intellectual power of my students, by the diversity in our classroom. And although teaching at INSEAD is quite challenging, it is also one of the most rewarding experiences that any professor can wish for."
