Faculty & Research


Faculty are our finest asset, underpinning INSEAD's reputation for research and teaching excellence, combining rigour with relevance.


At the heart of INSEAD's international reputation as "The Business School for the World" is the relevance and rigour of its research, teaching and learning materials. The experience and talents of our faculty combine to create world-class research results as well as teaching excellence.

The result is top-notch educational programmes, and cutting-edge research that extend the frontiers of business knowledge. INSEAD's prolific research output both identifies current trends in today's demanding business world, and explores principles that guide longer-term success
