Job Description

INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas from around the world to educate leaders who transform business and society. As a mission-driven school, INSEAD focuses on three values: open, rigorous, and entrepreneurial. Founded on a commitment to innovation in management education, INSEAD was the first international business school, introduced the first one-year MBA, pioneered company specific executive education, and has developed a unique fully integrated multi-continent campus structure. Today, no more than 10% of the incoming MBA class comes from one country – we truly are the Business School for the World.

Additionally, the Candidate Development Manager will need to keep track of progress against a set of KPIs to measure and report on his/her activity. This person will work closely with the recruitment teams in Degree Programmes to help support the overall objectives in terms of application volume, diversity and quality of candidates.
