Dear Alumni,

As you have experienced for yourself, INSEAD is a truly unique institution.  We graduate inspired individuals equipped with sound business knowledge and international wisdom.  Through the vision laid out by our founders, we have truly become an independent and entrepreneurial business school with an unmatched global outreach and unparalleled diversity of students, executive participants and alumni.

This weekend, I am excited to share my plans with you and I want to hear your views.  Our Alumni Reunions team has worked hard and put together an incredible programme for you.  Besides the Plenary Session which will focus on the MBA programme and our Alumni network, our Faculty Forums will also cover important themes relevant to the business world of today.

Throughout the weekend’s Social and Networking events, your Reunion will provide you with the ideal opportunity to expand your horizons – a chance to, not only reconnect with your former classmates, but also to interact with Alumni of other classes that hold the same INSEAD spirit.

I look forward to sharing many conversations with you this special weekend and invite you to join me in imagining the incredible potential of INSEAD, with a powerful network of more than 52,000 Alumni in 169 countries united, as we create an ambitious future for INSEAD.

Children's camp

Share the reunion weekend with your family. Your partner and your children are also invited to celebrate the reunion. All reunion activities are not suitable for children.

INSEAD has organised Children’s Camp so your children will enjoy the weekend while you and your partner enjoy the reunion.


Children’s Camp will be available on-campus for children aged 3 to 12 from 8am to 6pm on Saturday. Children will enjoy different activities (drawing, games,…).

The Programme

The Children’s Camp is organised by Magma Top Fun Anim’. The Top Fun 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.

The Camp Team

As required by law, the Top Fun staffing levels will be a minimum of 1 childcare provider per 8 children. The team will be composed of childcare providers, of which all are holders of a BAFA, BAFD as well as BSC1 diplomas.

The Leadership Team

The leadership of the team is provided by a Top Fun Anim Activities Manager, experienced in directing children’s activities. Qualifications of the manager include a BAFA (Brevet d’Aptitude aux Fonctions d’Animateur) and an AFPS (Attestation de Formation aux Premiers Secours). Insurance - Top Fun’s insurance coverage is provided by the insurance group RC Organisation for professional liability.


Bring your children with you to the casual family barbecue on campus. There is no cost for children under 6.


Additional services available during the reunion

The family room

INSEAD is unable to provide childcare for children under the age of 3. If you attend the reunion with your little ones, be sure to visit the “family room” on campus (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 secretariat.reunions@insead.edu. if you wish to receive a copy of this list.
Any arrangements are to be made directly with the babysitter. Parents and babysitters must deal directly with each other for all questions of scheduling, availability and payment.
