Business Foundation Certificate Programme


Progress into a Business Career

INSEAD in collaboration with Sorbonne Université offers the Business Foundations Certificate (BFC) programme tailored for recent master or PhD graduates from the sciences, medicine, humanities, engineering and law. The programme equips participants with a broad set of business and economics skills that optimally complement their graduate training. It also supports participants' transition to a business career and helps aspiring entrepreneurs to fulfil the goal of their own start-up by complementing their ideas with a solid foundation in business and leadership.
