Alternative FUNDING OPTIONS
INSEAD Scholarships are the most sought-after source of financial assistance. As they are limited in number, there is significant competition for each award and we require applicants to provide accurate details of their financial situation.
These scholarships are granted under various criteria and essentially have two basic categories:
- Need-based: demonstrate financial need
- Non-need based: by merit, nationality, gender, professional background, leadership abilities, field of previous studies etc.
All admitted MBA students are eligible to apply for an International Loan Programme from Prodigy Finance. Prodigy Finance was started by three INSEAD alumni in 2006 to solve the problem experienced by many international MBAs in funding their education.
Funding By Country
Other organisations and banks known by INSEAD to offer loans for the INSEAD MBA programme are also listed by country.
