Learning Through Diversity

Unlike other schools, INSEAD doesn’t have a dominant national culture. This enables us to turn diversity into a powerful learning tool.

Global, Intense & Efficient

With only 51 to 60 days needed away from work over a period of 14 to 17 months, depending on your choice of starting campus, the GEMBA is one of the most efficient routes to a top business degree.

Are You GMAT & GRE Ready?

2 male and 2 female students are smiling while networking in INSEAD programme, indicative of the opportunity to mix with corporate leaders from different industries and countries.

Thinking of applying to the programme? A strong GMAT or GRE score helps us assess your ability to succeed in the programme.

Like many other adaptive tests, both tests require rigorous preparation in the weeks leading up to the exam date. With the right approach and proper planning, however, acing them is well within reach.

Practice the tests on our online simulators to assess your level.
