PARTNERS AND FAMILIES
Partners and children enrich and enliven our community. In return, we try to make sure that they benefit from the INSEAD experience in every possible way.
AROUND 30% OF STUDENTS BRING PARTNERS TO INSEAD
This makes for a large, vibrant group - as diverse as the student population itself and fully integrated with it. A year as a partner at INSEAD is a great opportunity to experience new cultures and learn new languages. Plus, Singapore is a dynamic world city, just a short flight away from some of Asia's most desirable holiday destinations, while Fontainebleau is a national centre for heritage and outdoor activities, only 40 minutes from Paris by train.
Children are particularly welcome.
Although they have free run of the campuses, each site has a special playroom (which is under parents responsibilities – no childcare are provided), equipped especially for babies, toddlers and parents and where baby music class is hosted (only in Fontainebleau). Kids even get their own "future MBA" security pass on demand and a network of international friends, just like mum and dad. Plus, both Singapore and Fontainebleau are extraordinarily child-friendly places to live.
