Dear Alumni,

As you know, INSEAD is a truly unique institution with an exceptional global alumni network. We want to extend a special welcome to you, as the newest members of our alumni community, for your first reunion.

After an intense year as an MBA student, you are now back in the real world. Today, we would like to offer you a respite – to network and catch-up with your classmates.

Our Alumni Reunions Team has put together a day of faculty and career coaching sessions along with soccer and rugby matches. We hope you fully enjoy the opportunity to be with your INSEAD family again.

We look forward to sharing conversations with you about INSEAD’s future. Also, we will invite you to join us in imagining the incredible potential of our school.

With our powerful network of more than 57,254 alumni in 175 countries, INSEAD is global and diverse like no other business school.

We know that, together, we can change the world!

Warm wishes,

Faculty session

From semiconductors to human decision making replacement?

Humans are biased. So are machines - humans say. What happens when you put the two together? How did we end up to a place where this question is even on the table? All some people (scientists and engineers) wanted to do in the 1940s or so was a few “AND and OR” operations, how did we reach here? What does it mean for management? Will we finally get past the “leadership stuff” of the 20th century management thinking - and what are the next big management and societal questions in the world of humans and machines? Can we even expect any answers to these questions?
