Certificate in Business Acumen


Lead Business

Today’s managers operate in a globalised world with a rapidly changing and demanding business environment. Organisations are seeking leaders with the business acumen to navigate these changes and successfully run business units.

INSEAD’s Certificate in Business Acumen is designed to bring INSEAD to participants from select emerging markets, at their workplace and at their pace. Taught by the same world-class INSEAD faculty who teach in the MBA, Executive MBA and Executive Education programmes, it will enable participants to advance their business acumen for their organisations’ success.

Consisting of four modules that are delivered over three months, the programme enhances participants' understanding and application of the cross-functional skills of business management. A variety of learning pedagogies, including video lectures, live webinar interactions, learning circles for group work, quizzes, assignments and self-assessments, will be combined to achieve the learning outcomes.
