As one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas from around the world to change lives and transform organisations. This worldly perspective and cultural diversity are reflected in all aspects of our research and teaching.

With campuses in Europe (France), Asia (Singapore) and Abu Dhabi, INSEAD's business education and research spans three continents. Our 148 renowned Faculty members from 40 countries inspire more than 1,300 degree participants annually in our MBA, Executive MBA, specialised master's degrees (Master in Finance, Executive Master in Consulting and Coaching for Change) and PhD programmes. In addition, more than 9,500 executives participate in INSEAD's Executive Education programmes each year.

Global Executive MBA (GEMBA)

No other school offers a modular Executive MBA programme across three fully integrated campuses: Europe (France), Asia (Singapore) and the Middle East (Abu Dhabi). With three routes, depending on the starting campus, GEMBA offers experienced executives an intensive 14–17-month fast track to the top – via one of the world’s most prestigious and multicultural academic institutions.

Each class has an unparalleled diversity of nationalities, enabling participants to learn from each other and build a close-knit yet globally distributed network. Another unique feature is the Leadership Development Programme, a comprehensive ‘programme-within-a-programme” that follows and shapes your personal and professional development – and runs throughout your time as a participant.

The Leadership Development Programme is founded on the belief that leadership is much more than management. Today’s leaders must strike a balance between reflection and action to help their organisations adapt to the unknown. They must be flexible, aware of context and able to adjust their leadership style to the situation. Just as importantly, they must know themselves and understand their impact on others.

Other EMBA programmes may offer leadership courses, but INSEAD includes a programme-long schedule of group coaching, 360-degree assessments and team activities, designed to develop a leadership style that is authentic to you – and thus accelerate your career progress even further.

Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA (TIEMBA)

The dual-degree Tsinghua-INSEAD Executive MBA (TIEMBA) provides an additional option for experienced executives – in partnership with one of the world’s great universities in Beijing, Tsinghua University. This unique programme develops an in-depth understanding of business in China, from both international and domestic perspectives, which can also be applied to other emerging markets across the world.
