As governments and organisations continue to grapple with the impact of Covid-19, we hope that our participants, students and wider community remain safe and well.
Whilst each day brings a new set of challenges, at INSEAD we are committed to proactively ensuring the health and well-being of our community.
Below we have compiled information about measures put in place in our various countries of operation with the goal to secure the safety of our campuses. You will also find up-to-date information about the delivery of executive education programmes across all of our campuses.
Given the continuous evolution and impact of the virus you may be interested to learn about revisions made to our application policy to support your future development needs.

We have followed government measures extremely carefully, respecting quarantine directives and implementing temperature checks on our campuses. Whilst we continue to adhere to the directives laid out by governments and health authorities in our various countries of operation with the goal to secure our community, since 16th March our Europe campus and San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation are closed until further notice. And from 7th April our Asia campus will also be closed until further notice.
As a result, executive education programmes taking place on our Europe and Asia campuses and San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation have been cancelled until the end of July. We do however plan to resume programmes starting end of August – although we will continue to monitor the situation closely in case further delays are needed.
Given the uncertainties that lay ahead, and the impact on you and your organisation as we learn to navigate the crisis on both a personal and professional level, we have reviewed our application policy so that we may continue to support your future development plans.
From now until 31st August 2020, our cancellation policy has been relaxed to give you some peace of mind and to relieve you from the pressure of applying. Submitted applications for face-to-face programmes within this timeframe will not be liable to the standard cancellation fee. Instead, participants are welcome to transfer - free of charge - to a future session or an alternative programme, within 12 months of the original programme date (space permitting). We simply ask you to notify us three weeks in advance so that we may manage the transfer as efficiently as possible for you.
Mirroring the diversity and dynamism found in a typical INSEAD classroom, our online programmes provide a rich learning experience focused on maximising business impact.
Working with a learning coach throughout the programme, you will also practise applying your learning to your own context by working on Action Learning Projects (ALPs), to build a concrete action plan aligned with your organisation and your personal learning objectives.
Our Online Programmes can cater to groups and multiple teams coming from the same organisation - helping you to leverage further the group learning outcome.

The COVID-19 epidemic has highlighted the vulnerabilities of the traditional physically co-located office, forcing many Asian companies to work remotely. However, a small but growing number of tech companies are intendedly going “all-remote”. They may well be harbingers of the future of work.
The world is facing an unprecedented challenge in COVID-19. It is a highly complex, uncertain and fast-moving situation and increasingly dramatic measures are being adopted by countries around the world to try to minimise impact from the crisis. INSEAD is launching a new webinar series “Navigating the Turbulence of COVID-19” to provide our community with deeper understanding of key issues surrounding pandemic control and current countermeasures around the world.
