Welcome

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 may have heard, the school will launch The Campaign for INSEAD, a capital campaign which will enable us to accelerate the funding of key priorities based on our Values, Vision and Ventures as we advance Business as a Force for Good. I hope you will join us for the launch celebrations on 5th October, more details can be found here.

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.

Developing Responsible Leaders (in business schools): wishful thinking?

Media reports – quasi daily and in many countries - situations where corporations, their leaders and managers, seem to have a broken moral compass or engage in questionable behaviour. Government hopes to regulate, society reacts negatively, trust in business and in its leaders has vanished, with serious consequences for corporations. Taking examples from China (with the use of a short case) and from the rest of the world, we will question where change could come from? Can business schools really do something about the situation and avoid producing a few moral morons??
