INSEAD is a graduate business school with campuses in Europe (Fontainebleau, France), Asia (Singapore), and the Middle East (Abu Dhabi). The school offers full-time MBA (with two MBA schedules per year: one starting in September which takes ten months to complete, and a 12-month promotion starting in January for students who want to complete a summer internship), EMBA, Master in Finance and PhD programs.

With three fully-integrated campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and over 80 different nationalities in the classroom, no other business school offers such a multicultural experience. The accelerated 10-month curriculum develops successful, thoughtful leaders and entrepreneurs who create value for their organisations and their communities. Our alumni often say that their year at INSEAD was life-changing.​

With a 99,5% completion rate and 8% of students benefiting from a remedial plan, INSEAD is proud that a big majority of students fulfil all academic requirements in order to be awarded the MBA degree. This success is due to a rigorous selection process, innovative teaching methodologies & efficient administrative support services.

10 months

Fully customisable general management programme.

It’s intense! You will need to make choices. It’s impossible to do everything. Like drinking from a fire hose. Everyone is a minority at INSEAD as there is no dominant culture. You will learn from others who think very differently to you.

It’s a safe, collaborative environment where you push your comfort zone, try new ways of thinking and behaving.

The programme will resonate with you if you know you want to use your talents to make an impact and transform business and society.

great, i'm so happy to hear. another question, Do you have an preferences between the GMAT and the GRE test?
Mike Wort

Hi Nick - Given the program is 10 months, it's quite intense and students would need to focus on the program. Any free time is usually spent networking.
Hi David - No preference, either or will suffice ..

Hi Roy - you will be asked to choose your home campus(Singapore or Fontainebleau) on your application. However, if you would like to experience the different campuses, you will have the opportunity to spend a period or 2 in different locations
Hi Ofek - yes INSEAD offers quite a few scholarships. You can find the list of scholarships here: https://www.insead.edu/master-programmes/mba/financing/scholarships
