Our research, development programmes and outreach initiatives address the challenges and opportunities of developing boards as a mechanism for value creation.
Our programmes combine expertise from academics who study processes in different regions of the world with high-profile practitioners who bring to the classroom their wealth of experience. We contribute to a better understanding of supervisory board roles and practices, not only amongst board members themselves but also executives, government and society at large.

Combining INSEAD's expertise with insights of industry leaders, partner programmes are designed to offer a unique platform for exchanging and leveraging collective experiences from both the academic and business world. The programmes support directors and boards in addressing real-world situations through cross-disciplinary collaboration with focus on the specific challenge unique to the environment they operate in.
INSEAD offers educational programmes for corporate boards, shareholders (e.g. of family firms), not-for-profit organisations and government agencies.
Directors of Partner Development exchange with board representatives and faculty in designing programmes that are customised to a particular board’s needs. These can be provided as stand-alone modules on or away from campus, or alongside a board or shareholder meeting.
