Competition starts early in the INSEAD PhD in Management. Only 16-18 students from a large pool of applicants are admitted each year across Europe and Asia campuses. However, the programme's rigorous academic standards and healthy competition drive students to become top academics and researchers, empowering them to create positive change. Therefore, it's crucial to start preparing early and put in your best efforts to secure a spot in this prestigious programme.
Financing Your PhD
Five-year PhD Funding
In practice, it is rare for PhD students to fund their studies from their resources. As the programme is rigorous and intensive and expectations are high, we do not want our students to bear the financial burdens typically associated with a doctoral study.
100%Tuition Fee Waiver
70,000€Tuition fee for the First two years (waived)
21,000 €Dissertation Fees from third to fifth year (waived)
*The funding will stop either at the end of June in the 5th year (by which time a candidate is expected to have secured an academic position) or as soon as a candidate begins working at a university, business school, or any other relevant institution while still completing their graduation requirements (if this occurs before the end of June in the 5th year). Annual support, i.e., tuition fee, stipend, research and conference budget, and health insurance coverage, regularly undergoes review. Newly admitted and current students must refer to the PhD guidelines or consult the PhD Programme Office for the latest updates.
