Spotlight on INSEAD
As many of our readers know, INSEAD’s Round 1 deadline for the January 2013 intake is April 11, 2012. For those of you planning to tackle your INSEAD application this weekend, here is an exclusive peek at information found in our School Guide about the highlights of this one-year MBA program:
Condensed Timeline – INSEAD, distinct from most of its peer schools, solely offers a one-year MBA program. Although schools such as Kellogg and LBS offer condensed options to some students, all INSEAD students are expected to complete their degrees in just ten months of instruction. By halving the time it takes to earn an MBA, INSEAD allows students to transition between careers and return to the workforce as quickly as possible.
Language Proficiency – INSEAD has the most rigorous language requirement of any leading business school, requiring fluency or proficiency in two languages to enter the program and knowledge of a third to graduate. These requirements are designed to prepare INSEAD students for highly international careers.
Multiple Campuses – Organized as one school spanning two continents, INSEAD’s dual campuses in France and Singapore enable students to gain firsthand experience with business and culture in both Western Europe and Southeast Asia. A third executive education campus was opened in Abu Dhabi in 2010. More than three-quarters of students take advantage of the school’s campus exchange opportunity during their time in the MBA program.
International Focus – With campuses in Europe and Asia, students drawn from over 70 countries, and alumni living in more than 160 countries, INSEAD is truly a global institution. During their time at INSEAD, students are exposed to cultural, linguistic and other differences through both formal academic experiences and informal interaction with classmates.
