About this Event

Reunion for the classes of MBA’79, MBA’84J&D, MBA’89J&D, MBA’94J&D, MBA’99J&D, and MBA’04J&D

Welcome

Dear Alumni,

We are delighted to invite you back to INSEAD Europe Campus for your reunion on 21-23 June 2024!

Alumni reunions are a celebration of you and of the joint project that is INSEAD. Something magical happens when you and your classmates return to campus to rekindle friendships, reconnect with the school, and renew the INSEAD spirit. And this year, it's your turn to experience the joy of being together again for your reunion.

We hope as many of you as possible will have the opportunity to travel from the four corners of the world to return to Fontainebleau for your reunion — see you in June!

Warmly,

The Alumni Reunions Team

Programme

We are planning a weekend of memorable moments for you and your classmates. In addition to a plenary with the Deans and faculty sessions, you’ll have plenty of time to reconnect with your classmates during class meetings, networking sessions, and casual meals on campus.

Please note that the programme is subject to change.

Photos and videos

When you attend an INSEAD Alumni Reunion, you are attending an event where photography, audio, and video recording may occur.

These images and recordings may be edited, copied, exhibited, published or distributed, and you waive any right to royalties or other compensation arising from or related to the use of these images or recordings. Photographic, audio or video recordings may be used for any use including but not limited to: livestreaming, online videos, presentations, media and social media, news (press), and INSEAD websites. By attending this event, you and all members of your registration group accept to be photographed, filmed, and recorded during the event; acknowledge that these images and recordings may be used as noted above; and release any and all claims against INSEAD and its partners utilizing this material. If you would prefer that you, your underage child, or any member of your registration group not be photographed or recorded during the reunion, or if you would like us to delete your images, please contact INSEAD Alumni Reunions at [email protected].

The Salamander Awards

The Salamander – a legendary creature, famed for its valour and perseverance – was the insignia of King François I. It decorates the Château de Fontainebleau where the first INSEAD classes were held and inspired the INSEAD Alumni Association to choose it as their emblem.

We look forward to honouring the Salamander holders in your class during your reunion.

Beginning in 1987, INSEAD has awarded Salamander statuettes to alumni and friends who have supported INSEAD with exceptional lifetime giving. In addition to listing Salamander holders on campus donor walls and in the annual Donors Report, INSEAD celebrates the generosity of Salamander donors during alumni reunions.
