Dear Alumni,

As you have experienced for yourself, INSEAD is a truly unique institution. We graduate inspired individuals equipped with sound business knowledge and valuable international perspectives. By staying true to our founders’ vision, we have become a top-ranked business school known for its diversity, entrepreneurial spirit and unmatched global reach.

This reunion weekend is a special one. As you know, this academic year, INSEAD is celebrating 50 years of women in our MBA programme with a series of events and initiatives.  The year-long celebration culminates in the iW50 Summit on #INSEADWomen: A force beyond limits on Friday, 29 June 2018 on campus. The event will be highly interactive, with keynote addresses by government and business leaders, CEO roundtables, faculty lectures, workshops, discussions in the world café format as well as inspiring talks from alumni.

I am both excited to share my plans with you and eager to hear your views. Our Alumni Reunions team has put together an incredible programme. Besides the plenary session, that focuses on the MBA programme and our alumni network, our faculty forums also will cover important issues that drive today’s business world.

Throughout the weekend’s social and networking events, your reunion will provide you with the ideal opportunity to enrich your INSEAD experiences. I encourage you to not only reconnect with your former classmates, but also to interact with alumni of other classes who exemplify the same INSEAD spirit.

I look forward to spending time with you this special weekend. Please join me in working to realise the incredible potential of INSEAD. We have a powerful network of close to 56,000 alumni in 174 countries. United, we can forge an ambitious future for our school.

Unbound together: Leading and living in the age of nomadic professionalism
Speaker: Gianpiero Petriglieri

It has become cliché to note that profound economic, cultural and technological change has shaken up the world of work over the last three decades—and that the pace of change is only accelerating. Some look upon those changes with optimism, remarking that they have liberated us. We are freer than ever to move around in order to pursue careers aligned with our true self and purpose. Others, rather more dourly, note than we all seem a bit lonelier and more confused in the globalized workplace. Living and leading authentically and with purpose, in short, has become more possible and yet more elusive than ever. In this interactive session, Professor Petriglieri will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by the rise of nomadic professionalism—and how individuals and organizations need to rethink the practice and development of leadership to avoid its pitfalls and experience its benefits.

How growing inequality has changed the economic landscape 
Speaker: Mark Stabile

Over the past 20 years countries worldwide have seen a marked increase in both income and wealth inequality. Increasingly, an extremely small share of the population has accumulated an ever-increasing share of society’s resources. The rapid rise in inequality has been coupled with stagnant income growth for the majority of citizens in the western world and a decline in social mobility in the US and other rich economies. At the same time we have seen an increase in the incomes of the middle of the global income distribution, lending support to the notion that as the western middle class stagnates, the top 1 percent and emerging markets are capturing all the rewards. Understanding the causes, consequences and solutions to these changes for society and business will be the focus of this session.

The presentations, slides or videos that the professors will be happy to share will be available after the event.

Mini Summer @ INSEAD

Welcome to what will be a fun and experiential learning journey! Inspired by INSEAD’s two-week Summer@INSEAD Business Awareness Summer camp, this one-day Programme takes the young participants through an exciting live case. Rather than reading about what managers in the case could do, the participants are those managers and live the case themselves over a simulated period of time. Comprising academic lectures, team work and role play, the participants will come away with some knowledge and experience of what it is like to manage a company and craft a strategy in a competitive and fast-changing world.

Adrian Johnson
Adjunct Professor, Programme Director, Summer @ INSEAD



This programme has been designed especially for your children. It will feature a mix of academic curriculum, team work, and role play on ‘How to build an innovative company and craft a strategy’.  An INSEAD experience not to be missed!

If your child is 15-18 years old, have him/her apply and join a dynamic team at INSEAD on Saturday 30 June in an immersive business simulation.

The teenagers will learn and apply the essentials of business in this fun and intense programme. During the day your child and his/her your team will manage a fast-growing innovative company. While faced with daily operational challenges, he/she will also have to craft a long-term strategy for the company in a highly competitive market.  Can he/she find the "blue ocean" for your company?
