INSEAD San Francisco Hub Launch

This coming February 2020, INSEAD is further expanding its global network with San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation – the school’s first location in North America. The state-of-the-art spaces will set the scene for future learning, innovative programmes, collaboration and social interaction.

A meeting of minds

The facility will bring together people, cultures and ideas to connect, develop and drive innovation that will change the future of business and society.

The INSEAD Campaign: Live & Direct - San Francisco

As the most diverse and international business school in the world, INSEAD has a significant role to play by educating leaders with a global mindset. The Campaign for INSEAD empowers the school to further advance this mission.

Grounded in distinct values, vision and ventures, this bold initiative provides the necessary means to broaden INSEAD's reach and deepen its impact. It supports INSEAD’s commitment to develop the next generation of global business leaders, managers and entrepreneurs who will tackle world-scale issues and harness business as a force for good.

The INSEAD Campaign: Live & Direct - San Francisco will bring together INSEAD alumni and friends who want to engage in the school’s development and wish to contribute to this momentum. As we mark the school’s 60th anniversary, it will provide you with a unique opportunity to discover the INSEAD San Francisco Hub and learn more about this new and ambitious journey.
