Welcome

Dear Class MBA'04J&D,

As you have experienced for yourself, INSEAD is a truly unique institution. We graduate inspired individuals equipped with sound business knowledge and valuable international perspectives. By staying true to our founders’ vision, we have become a top-ranked business school known for its diversity, entrepreneurial spirit and unmatched global reach.

This weekend, I am excited to share my plans with you and eager to hear your views. Our Alumni Reunions team has put together a wonderful programme. Besides the plenary session, that focuses on the MBA programme and our alumni network, our faculty forums also will cover important issues that drive today’s business world. Throughout the weekend’s social and networking events, your reunion will provide you with the ideal opportunity to enrich your INSEAD experiences. I encourage you to not only reconnect with your former classmates, but also to interact with alumni of the other classes who exemplify the same INSEAD spirit. I look forward to spending time with you during this special weekend in Singapore. I am eager to welcome you back to the Asia Campus for your reunion.

Please join me in working to realise the incredible potential of INSEAD. We have a powerful network of over 58,566 alumni in 176 countries. Together, we can forge an ambitious future for our school.

Dean
