Step by Step Application Guide

Are You GMAT & GRE Ready?



Thinking of applying to the programme? A strong GMAT or GRE score helps us assess your ability to succeed in the programme.

Like many other adaptive tests, both tests require rigorous preparation in the weeks leading up to the exam date. With the right approach and proper planning, however, acing them is well within reach.

Practice the tests on our online simulators to assess your level.

Applicants need to submit their application online. Only complete applications will be considered by the Admissions Committee. You will need to submit the following:

  • Online application form containing your personal data, a CV, academic background, two recommendation letters (from a business or academic environment/perspective), scanned copies of your academic transcripts with officially certified translation (if applicable), a motivation essay, and your test results for GMAT or GRE, and English (if applicable).
  • Once you have submitted the application form, you will be redirected to the “Kira Talent” platform for a video interview, where you will answer additional questions.
  • You will also need to pay the application fee:  EUR 180.

All elements of your application will be thoroughly reviewed by the admissions team. If successful through the first pre-selection, candidates will be invited to attend an interview with an INSEAD alumni or admissions representative in a city near you, or via Skype. Once the interview is completed and the interview report has been returned, the application will be reviewed further and finally submitted to the Admissions Committee.

You do not need to have full-time professional experience prior to applying to the programme. However, some experience in a business context will be valued such as an internship or work in a charity/community environment.

We require an undergraduate degree (Bachelor degree or equivalent) from a recognised college or university or that you have completed 180 ECTS. The Admissions Committee values the guarantee that a reputable institution may provide.

Yes, all candidates must take the GMAT or GRE to be eligible to apply.
