from our recruiters
I believe INSEAD and McKinsey have a lot in common and it is very exciting to meet so many ‘INSEADers’ working for the firm all over the world!

Partner and INSEAD recruiting lead for McKinsey
INSEAD’s Career Development Centre team is exemplary in working with us to build a strong pipeline of MBA talent for Amphenol. INSEAD’s students and alumni, with their diversity and global experience, are standouts and have created lasting impact on our firm. In my view, INSEAD is a sure bet for anyone looking for true entrepreneurial spirits and future business leaders.
Director, Organisational Development
I wanted the best people from all over the world, so I went back to INSEAD and I took 30 people from there, and had them all come here to the Valley to train, before sending them to Europe.

Engage with our talent pool
You will find below a selection of ways to interact with our MBA students.
- Company events
We can help advise you on the ideal recruiting format for your organisation. For regular recruiters with an established recruiting programme at INSEAD, we offer the possibility of holding a one-hour event which typically includes a 30-minute formal presentation focusing on your organisation’s vision, culture, possible career paths, and hiring process and a 30-minute Q&A session. These presentations are generally followed by a networking cocktail reception, with interviews held 2 to 3 weeks later.
Another option is to participate in a multi-sector networking event with a limited number of organisations, enabling you to interact with students over a two-hour period. It is a great opportunity to really get to know students and tell them more about your organisation and career paths in an exclusive setting.
For all company events on campus we recommend that, wherever possible, you include as part of your recruiting team, INSEAD Alumni who can make a powerful impact and explain your company to students.
- On-Campus Interviews
Face-to-face interviews can be scheduled in our interview rooms on the Asia and Europe campuses using our web-based scheduling system in CareerGlobe. We can also set up interviews via Skype and video-conference for candidates who are studying on a different campus.
INSEAD’s Career Development Centre organises a series of thematic forums throughout the year. Below are some of the events happening in 2016:
- Social Impact Career Forum
Run as a joint venture between INDEVOR (INSEAD’s MBA-led social impact club) and INSEAD’s Career Development Centre, this biannual forum gives you the opportunity to interact with students considering a career in Social Impact. The event generally kicks off with a Keynote Presentation followed by two hours of networking between company representatives and students.
- Entrepreneurship Career Forum
This biannual event is dedicated to the stakeholders of the Entrepreneurship Ecosystems (entrepreneurs/intrapreneurs, startups, SMEs, Incubators and Accelerators, VCs) to interact with students interested in this field during a networking session, followed by a cocktail reception.
- Middle East Talent Networking Forum
The Middle East Talent Networking Forum brings together INSEAD students and alumni from the MBA and the Executive MBA programmes as well as recruiters and decision makers from various sectors, to discuss opportunities for recruiting and developing top talent in the region.
These represent an excellent opportunity to help students develop skills that could eventually benefit your organization. Past topics have included presentation skills, case interview techniques and finance interview preparation.
Our students have created a variety of sector-specific clubs, including consulting, private equity, consumer & luxury goods, healthcare, energy, entrepreneurship and Social Impact. Working with the clubs on their various events enables you to efficiently target and network with groups of motivated students. List of Business Clubs.
Career treks enable students to meet with established and emerging business leaders in their offices and attend networking events. It is most of the time about discovering an industry or a company, and to ask questions about how it works and what your company is all about.
These usually take the form of discussions on careers in specific industries or functions, or on issues such as women in business. Three to four speakers are generally invited to share their experience with our participants.
The Employer Engagement Specialists can facilitate connections between company representatives and members of the student clubs.
Organisations hiring INSEAD MBAs for projects or internships can benefit from highly-motivated, self-starting individuals with excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, who are culturally sensitive and multi-lingual. This option gives companies an opportunity to evaluate potential full-time talent, as well as increase the visibility of their corporate brand at INSEAD.
