Investing in your Future

An INSEAD MBA yields a lifetime of dividends, both professionally and personally. Pursuing an MBA however, is a serious commitment of time and money—an investment that needs to be carefully considered and planned for by applicants.

To understand the financial obligations that are required for you to attend the INSEAD MBA Programme, check our MBA Cost & Fees section. It is important to consider your financing and funding options early on during the application process, which could be in the form of savings, loans or scholarships. You can begin by seeing if you are eligible to apply for any of the scholarships or loans that are listed on our website. 

Though the responsibility of funding your year at INSEAD ultimately lies with you, the MBA Financial Aid Office can assist you in planning your financing for the INSEAD MBA programme.
