With three fully-integrated campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and over 90 different nationalities in the classroom, no other business school offers such a multicultural experience.

why the INSEAD MBA
INSEAD is consistently ranked among the top 5 MBA programmes in the world by the Financial Times, Bloomberg Businessweek and Forbes. MBA recruiters also rate us #1 in Asia and Europe (QS research 2014/15) for the employability of our graduates.
The most diverse MBA
With over 90 nationalities every year across campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East and optional exchanges with top schools in the US and China, there’s no better place to build an international career.
Our 75 electives, 2 intakes and the option of studying on 3 continents allow you to tailor your MBA to fit your learning and career goals. Much more than case studies in a classroom, the programme bridges the boundaries between classroom theory and real-life practice.
POWERFUL ALUMNI COMMUNITY
A vast network of over 50,000 alumni across more than 170 countries. We have produced more CEOs of FT500 companies than any other business schools in Europe or Asia.
GLOBAL CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
Thanks to the 40 career professionals across 3 campuses and the 580+ companies that recruit from INSEAD (full-time and internships) every year, more than 89% of our students are employed within 3 months of graduating. 78% succeed in changing their function, sector or country and 27% manage to change all 3 at once.
INSEAD's one-year programme means only one year out of the job market, only one year of fees and – at US$103,700 average salary in 2016, INSEAD MBA graduates benefit from a higher 5-year gain than those of any other leading school in the world.
Our 148 faculty members are not simply inspirational teachers; they are also world-class researchers and leaders in their fields.

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Real experience from real people
Je suis arrivé à Fontainebleau! Actually, I arrived a little over a month ago, but my new life at INSEAD has flown by faster than a New York Minute.
For most people when hearing about Islamic finance for the first time, the new term usually begs the question, “What’s different about Islamic finance compared to regular finance?”
After 10 days of travelling through the relative wilderness of East Africa, my Etihad flight made a smooth landing at Abu Dhabi’s International Airport. My journey to a brand new continent had just ended, but another, entirely different adventure was about to begin.
Ah INSEAD…. So unique that it’s hard to describe it to other people sometimes. The diversity, the pace, the combination of hard work and social life… but what makes INSEAD stand apart (and be the BEST MBA IN THE WORLD) is its short length mixed with the incredible number of options it offers to students.
“Raconte.” One word that calls for many. Pauline is French and she lives in Paris. She is a friend of mine, and a former colleague. We used to work for the same newspaper, she as a journalist and I as an art director.
If you have any questions related to our programmes or application procedures, we are here to help you.
The curriculum, course structure, class size and composition, and campus exchange opportunities are identical for the September and January intakes. The primary difference is that if you choose to begin in September, you will complete the MBA in ten consecutive months. If you choose to begin in January you will have a two-month summer break during which you can pursue an internship or other endeavours.
There is no typical day as the schedule will change every day throughout the year. During the first two periods when students take their core courses, they often have 2 to 3 classes a day of 90 minutes each, Monday to Friday, starting at the earliest at 8.30am and finishing at the latest by 7.00pm. Students also have assignments and group projects, career counselling sessions and extra-curriculum activities. For the last three periods, each student has their own academic schedule depending on the electives he or she has chosen, with the same amount of assignments and group work, and typically increasing time spent on career related activities.
No, we do not accept transfer credits from other schools.
INSEAD offers more than 75 electives across both campuses, giving you the chance to construct a tailor-made MBA programme that fits your personal and career goals. We do not have specialisations or majors. You are free to pursue a generalist path towards management or specialise in a particular area such as finance or entrepreneurship. However, regardless of the path you decide to take during your elective period, everybody graduates with the same general MBA degree diploma
