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 reconnect with your former classmates 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.
