Our shared vision is the belief that tomorrow’s market leaders in management research and education must have global reach and be part of a global business education and knowledge network. The enhanced use of information and communication technology as well as state-of-the-art learning technologies will be critical components of that global network.
of deep collaborative relationships across the two institutions to stimulate faculty and student exchanges, promote world-class research and further enhance globalization of our curricula and learning.
of an image of the “best of the best” working in close collaboration, such that when business people anywhere are asked to name a top business program, Wharton-INSEAD are top-of-mind responses.
of each school’s abilities to work with top global corporations for management development and research sponsorship.
in our ability to attract outstanding faculty to the two schools and the best students to our programs.
The alliance between INSEAD and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is a strategic partnership created in March 2001 to establish academic ties between two prestigious business schools based on the shared belief that tomorrow’s market leaders in management education must have global reach and be part of a global business education and knowledge network with a leadership position in America, Europe and Asia. The demands of fast-paced, multinational companies for superior global education was the key driver behind the decision to form this Alliance.
