INSEAD offers scholarships to offset tuition fees for the Executive Master in Finance to outstanding candidates whose profiles will help further the programme's diversity objectives. Applications may be submitted once you have been accepted to the programme.
The scholarship award averages at 10% of the tuition fee. Admits can receive up to two awards maximum. However, total scholarship amount generally does not exceed 10% of tuition fees. There is also an external scholarship available through the Monetary Authority of Singapore (Financial Scholarship Programme (FSP)). Click below to learn more.
All admitted EMFin students are eligible to apply for a Loan Programme from Prodigy Finance or Lendwise.
For both participants and the sponsoring company, the programme’s impact is obvious. Participants bring their job experience to the classroom and take their classroom insights back to their jobs. Endorsement recognises that participants are investing company time by allowing employees to travel to our campus to complete the five residential modules of the Executive Master in Finance programme. This is a material investment and as such, we would recommend a formal Endorsement Agreement.
