About this Event

Reunion for the classes of MBA’09J&D, MBA’14J&D, and MBA’19J&D

Welcome

Dear Alumni,

We are delighted to invite you back to INSEAD Europe Campus for your reunion on 7-9 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 with your favourite professors, 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. By attending this event, you consent to INSEAD and its partners taking photos, videos, and sound recordings and you grant INSEAD and its partners the rights of your image and/or image of your underage child/children attending the event, in video or still, and of the likeness and sound of your voice(s) as recorded on audio or videotape, without payment or any other consideration. 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].

Footnote shop

The campus shop located in the bar area will be open during your Reunion on Friday and Saturday. Find all your INSEAD gear and the latest business publications here.

 

Children's camp

Share the reunion weekend with your family! Your partner and children are also invited to take part in the reunion, but please note that not all activities are suitable for children.

To ensure that your children can have fun during the weekend – while you and your partner enjoy the reunion – we have arranged an on-campus Children’s Camp for children ages 3 to 12, for Friday afternoon (14:30 until 19:00) and all day Saturday (8:00 until 18:00).

The programme

The programme has been conceived and implemented in partnership with a team of educators to ensure the pedagogical value of the proposed activities, which also respect the natural rhythm of the child.

During Children’s Camp, children will enjoy a variety of activities. As there will be many opportunities for your child to use paint, mud, sand and other “messy” things on the playground, we recommend that you dress your child in clothes that can get dirty and/or bring change of clothes. This will allow your child to experience the greatest amount of freedom in the activities available. For your child’s safety, please ensure that your child wears closed-toed shoes, preferably tennis shoes. We discourage sandals, “crocs” and flip-flops which may cause slipping on the playground or make it difficult for your child to run and jump freely.

The camp team

As required by law, the staffing levels will be a minimum of 1 childcare provider per 10 children. The team will be composed of childcare providers, most of whom are holders of a BAFA (Brevet d’aptitude aux fonctions d’animateur) as well as PSC1 (Prévention et secours civique de niveau 1) diplomas, and have an insurance coverge.

Registration and cost

Children’s Camp is available on a first-come, first-served basis, via the online reunion registration page.

The cost for Children’s Camp is €162 per child. This includes the half-day program on Friday, a ticket for the Barbecue on Friday evening, and the full-day programme, including lunch, on Saturday. Please note that to provide this high-quality childcare option, we must require children to be registered for the entire Children’s Camp, whether they will attend both days or only one.

Space is limited, so please be sure to register early to ensure your child – and you – can enjoy the reunion!

Additional children’s activities and services available during the reunion.

Friday barbecue

Children are welcome for the casual barbecue on Friday evening. There is no charge for children under the age of 3. Children ages 3 to 15 need to be registered for a Children’s Barbecue ticket. Please note that children who are registered for Children’s Camp do NOT need a separate Children’s Barbecue ticket, as it is already included in the Children’s Camp fee.

The family room

INSEAD is unable to arrange childcare for children under the age of 3. If you attend the reunion with your little ones, you can visit the “family room” located near the main reception on the Lower Gallery level. The playroom is designed for our youngest guests and offers a child-friendly environment (toys, cribs, etc.). While visiting the family room, children should be under the supervision of the parents.

Babysitter list

If you need a babysitter during the weekend, we can provide you with a list of babysitters, please contact us at [email protected]. if you wish to receive a copy of this list. 

 

Accommodation

If you are planning to attend the reunion, please book your accommodation now! The supply of rooms in the Fontainebleau area is limited, and we expect a high demand. Don’t delay in making your booking.

For bookings at the INSEAD Residence, use the code ARW070624

Unfortunately, local hotels no longer allow INSEAD to pre-book rooms for the reunions or other events. However, the hotels are pleased to receive individual room requests directly from alumni. Please feel free to contact your preferred hotel as soon as possible to secure your booking now.

For suggestions of other hotels or B&Bs in the area, please consult the Fontainebleau Tourist Office hotel listing.

If you need assistance, please contact [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.

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.

Are you interested in joining this circle of leadership donors? Salamander statuettes are awarded to recognise cumulative lifetime giving at the following levels:


Emerald Salamander
Diamond Salamander
Platinum Salamander
Gold Salamander
Silver Salamander
Bronze Salamander

Summer ball

The Summer Ball at the historic Château de Fontainebleau is a special INSEAD tradition.

Though timed to coincide with the 5, 10, and 15-year reunion weekend, the Summer Ball is open to the wider INSEAD community: alumni, current students, staff, faculty, friends and families.

As the Summer Ball welcomes the wider INSEAD community, registration for this magical evening is separate from reunion registration, and Summer Ball tickets are not included in the reunion ticket package.

Summer Ball tickets are available at the Early Bird rate of €354 per person through 6 May 2024. From 7 May, full price tickets are available at €426 per person.

Please visit the dedicated Summer Ball website for more information and a link to register.
