The INSEAD MBA deadlines for the upcoming January 2022 intake are as follows.
To be considered for a given round, all application materials must be submitted by 11:59 PM (23:59) French Time.
The INSEAD admissions committee conducts MBA application review over the course of four rounds for each intake. INSEAD notes that within each round, applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. This means that the Interview and Final Decision deadlines below are the latest dates by which an applicant would receive a decision, but that they may hear news earlier.

The online application system registration process requires the applicant to upload a photograph. The application includes three required motivational essays and one optional essay. Applicants must submit GMAT or GRE scores, a CV, transcripts from each college or university attended, English language certification for non-native speakers (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic, or the Certificate of Proficiency in English test), two professional letters of recommendation (one from a current direct supervisor), and the €250 non-refundable application fee.
Upon submission of the application, the applicant will be prompted to complete a video interview using Kira Talent. Mobile devices, smartphones, tablets, and Internet Explorer are not supported in Kira. The video interview must be submitted no later than 48 hours after the application deadline. The video interviews do not replace face-to-face interviews with alumni.
How Does INSEAD Conduct Interviews?
Candidates are informed whether they have been selected to interview by the interview decision deadline. Interviews are conducted by INSEAD alumni, normally in the candidate’s country of residence. Two separate interviews are required for the majority of applicants.
