The most international business school now in
North America

“The Hub” marks the school’s first permanent facility in North America. In its first year, the Hub will offer a tailored selection of executive development programmes in North America from the INSEAD portfolio of 50+ global programmes.

Some of the first programmes coming to the Hub cover topics related to managing digital transformation, leading across borders and cultures, integrating performance and societal progress and implementing Blue Ocean Strategy. These programmes reflect INSEAD research and work with international executives and organisations around the world.
Historically, INSEAD has opened locations at the right place at the right time – in centres of growth and innovation. By opening its doors in San Francisco, INSEAD is tapping into the cutting edge of tech, venture finance, entrepreneurship and sustainability in the Bay Area.


Connect to the Business School for the World

As one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas to develop responsible leaders who transform business and society. Our research, teaching and partnerships reflect this global perspective and cultural diversity.

INSEAD has been a global leader in business education and research for six decades. We launched the world’s first one year MBA in Fontainebleau, France in 1959. In the year 2000, we opened the Asia Campus in Singapore and became the first business school with campuses on two continents. Our Middle East Campus in Abu Dhabi opened in 2010 with innovation in focus. The San Francisco Hub in North America is our latest venture, a space to forge connections and build on 60 years of excellence.

Connecting to Your Potential

The Hub is your opportunity to deepen your connection with the world around you and your sense of self as a leader, thinker and doer. It is an open space to engage with a diverse community, participate in classes and events, and broaden your perspectives through new knowledge and experiences. INSEAD connects you with life-long relationships and opportunities for transformation.

Connecting to the
Bay Area

INSEAD is deeply invested in global citizenship and each location draws inspiration, expertise and connections from the local community to shape unique offerings and approach. Like the Bay Area, the Hub exudes the grit, innovation and dynamic energy that define the region itself. From independence to entrepreneurial spirit and diversity, the values deep in the DNA of INSEAD are strong in the community.

Connecting to the Alumni Network

The Hub is an investment in strengthening the alumni network and the sense of belonging. As both a physical gathering space and digital platform, the Hub is a place for our community to meet, connect and collaborate. The Hub fortifies the long-lasting relationships that differentiate the INSEAD community from any other business school, enhancing our network in the Bay Area and around the world.

Connecting to the
Real World

Historically, INSEAD has opened locations in the right place at the right time – centres of innovation and global growth. By tapping into the pool of local experts at the cutting edge of venture finance, entrepreneurship, sustainability and technology, the Hub will connect our students, participants and community with real-world experiences and perspectives shaping the future of business.


Executive Education

Executives will be able to experience the immersive INSEAD learning methods, gain access to pathbreaking global research and professors, and gain exposure to the unique companies and culture of Silicon Valley.

In turn, the Hub is an investment that strengthens the global INSEAD network, which includes more than 60,000 alumni, 165 professors and business leaders in diverse sectors and markets around the world. It will also connect this immense diversity with the Bay Area community to shape its unique offerings and approach.
