Delivering both prosperity and positive social and environmental impact

We are a new INSEAD institute exploring the intersection of business and society. The challenges of our times are immense, and the decisions made by leaders today will determine the future. Our goal is to equip them to make those decisions in ways that deliver positive outcomes for business, communities, people and our planet.

The first step towards accomplishing this goal is hosting a conversation on business and society across a spectrum of issues.

We want to hear many perspectives from many voices. This will help focus our work. Please share your innovative ideas, new approaches and experiences. You can follow or join the conversation here on our website. You can also find us on social media or email us.






We will develop new theories, insights, and business models to drive private sector prosperity and societal progress. Research by leading INSEAD academics is the foundation for a brighter future.



We strive to educate inspired, diverse and analytical leaders who create value both for their organizations and for society – from our MBA, other masters and PhD programmes to Executive Education.



We will engage our alumni community and build relationships with public and private sector organisations that result in real-world impact as leaders implement new practices with significant advantages that benefit society and the environment.


Walk the talk

We strive to make INSEAD a model school that integrates societal impact into operations and contributes to both local prosperity and our collective global social progress – leading by example and inspiring action.







The world faces unprecedented challenges to global growth. Risks are rising from environmental pressures, our rapidly changing geopolitical landscape and the blistering pace of technology. We need to convene thought leaders, innovators, investors and entrepreneurs to affect real change. Steps forward must turn into strides towards a sustainable future. This is how we promote business as a force for good and achieve the next level of social impact.
