INSEAD Africa Initiative in collaboration with Global Business School Network, invites applications for a 12-month GBSN-INSEAD Africa Faculty Fellowship Programme.

In its effort to promote the continual improvement in quality learning and research across business schools in Africa, GBSN and INSEAD are joining forces to offer a GBSN-INSEAD Africa Faculty Fellowship designed for educators who are committed to advancing the quality of their learning and teaching. The Fellowship is designed to support African faculty members from GBSN member schools to further develop their teaching practice. During the Fellowship, the Fellow will work with INSEAD Faculty member(s) to develop a teaching resource or tool that can be brought back to their home institution and used in the classroom.

Terms of the Fellowship

Beyond pursuing their own projects, the Fellows will be expected to attend research seminars and workshops, to sit in on class sessions at the invitation of faculty, to interact with faculty, administrative staff, and students, and to serve as a guest speaker in class if requested. This experience should be seen as an opportunity for both personal and institutional development. Upon returning home, the Fellow will be expected to share their learnings, strategies, and teaching tools with their home institution, and to maintain a relationship with the INSEAD Africa Initiative. Finally, the Fellow will be asked to write a follow-up report about their experience with the GBSN-INSEAD Fellowship, highlighting key learnings and activities. The report will be published on the GBSN website, and possibly on relevant INSEAD websites.

  • Time and work will be spread across 12 months
  • Majority of the Fellowship work will be conducted virtually
  • Potential for on-campus visit with sponsoring Faculty on INSEAD’s campus (Fontainebleau or Singapore). Travel is subject to COVID-19 restrictions and availability.
  • Other ancillary expenses such as food and local transportation may be covered by INSEAD, under specific mutual agreement between INSEAD and the Fellow.

The Application Process

Applicants must be active faculty with the potential for – or actual duties of – academic leadership at a GBSN member school on the African continent. Professors of all academic fields of business and economics are welcome to apply. 

Applicants are to submit the following documents:

  • An expression of interest and proposal of personal objectives, activities, and desired project deliverables (e.g., research working paper, teaching tools, course syllabus, simulations, etc.)
  • The completed application form and a current curriculum vitae
  • A letter of support from the Dean or Director of their institution. The letter should explain the suitability of the candidate for the Fellowship and how the institution expects to benefit from the Fellow’s engagement with INSEAD.
  • All interviews are to be conducted virtually.
  • Applications are to be submitted online at the link here:
