One year to challenge your thinking, change your outlook and choose your future. 

Empower your Future with the World's #1 MBA programme (ranked by the Financial Times 2016 & 2017)

With two fully-integrated campuses in Europe and Asia and over 70 different nationalities in the classroom, no other business school offers such a multicultural experience. The accelerated 10-month curriculum develops successful, thoughtful leaders and entrepreneurs who create value for their organisations and their communities. Our alumni often say that their year at INSEAD was life-changing.

The INSEAD Norway Scholarship

The INSEAD Norway Scholarship was first created in 2010 by three members of the Norway Council, Statoil, Orkla and Schibsted, in support of INSEAD's efforts to attract top talent from Norway. The Boston Consulting Group Norway joined as major contributor in 2014 with Schibsted providing online publicity. The awards are merit based - candidates are expected to have strong academic results combined with demonstrated leadership qualities. They should be role models in their communities. One or two awards will be made each academic year. Norwegian citizens admitted to INSEAD are eligible. Female candidates and candidates with a well-documented financial need will be given priority.

More from our Norwegian Alumni

INSEAD was always my first choice due to its truly global profile and excellent academic reputation. I enjoyed working and living with people from all over the world and with very different private and professional backgrounds. I think the INSEAD experience gave me broader perspective on important business, organisational and societal issues. In addition, I believe it improved my ability to work and deliver in multicultural teams. I really enjoyed the year at INSEAD and would have liked to do it again!

Helge Lund, MBA '91J
Chief Executive Officer, BG Group



I chose INSEAD because it was European (I did my undergraduate degree in the US), international and highly competitive. I also liked that it was structured as an intense one -year program. I learnt a tremendous amount from working intensively with the very competent and competitive students at INSEAD. It was tough, but I really grew personally, and it changed my ability to solve challenges and get ahead. INSEAD is very much a "work hard, play hard" place - we had so much fun, and I still stay closely in touch with my many international INSEAD friends.

Kristin Skogen Lund, MBA '92J
Director General of the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO)



I chose INSEAD because of the balanced curriculum, the international focus, and the strong Norwegian alumni network. All of this proved true, but looking back, the quality and commitment of the faculty and the talent of the other students is what stands out in my experience. Getting the chance to challenge myself in discussions and teams with people I respect was truly rewarding. As an engineer, I value the MBA from INSEAD is an important compliment to further my own career.

Øystein Løken Mørch, MBA ‘11J
Vice President Aker Solutions



When I was a consultant in McKinsey, I wanted to pursue a 1-year MBA to develop in all areas of business and leadership. Especially, I was looking for new perspective on how to adapt to different settings and cultures. INSEAD was my top choice because of the international environment with 80-90 nationalities in a class of 500 and the world-wide alumni association. INSEAD offers deep business knowledge together with practical skills of teamwork and leadership. The fun part is that this is taught not only through theory but also with real-world examples and a lot of teamwork. Looking back, the development was both academically, personally and socially. Especially, I learnt how to effectively share my knowledge and thinking and develop strong long-term relationships. INSEAD was truly an international experience and it gave me the privilege to know people around the world. Most importantly, INSEAD made me adopt a more constructive way to view the world and expand my horizons.
