The 10-month programme is comprised of five periods, each lasting eight weeks. At the end of every period, there is an assessment (exam, essay or project) and a short break.
The first half of the programme is built around 14 core courses, which provide you with a solid understanding of the key management disciplines.
During the second half of the programme, INSEAD offers you an unparalleled range of over 75 innovative electives, all taught from an international perspective. While some students prefer to concentrate on certain disciplines, such as entrepreneurship and strategy, others choose to take courses in a wider variety of subjects to prepare for a career in general management. Elective examples: • Advanced Game Theory • Effective Fundraising for Entrepreneurs • Financial Statement Analysis • Incentives, Organisation and Strategy • Market Driving Strategies • Models for Strategic Planning
We also offer a range of popular courses that take learning out of the classroom. Courses such as “Building Businesses in China” or “Emerging Multinationals from Brazil” are examples of field trips available where you can meet a variety of alumni, entrepreneurs and executives in different countries, allowing for unique hands-on learning. You may also choose to do an Independent Study Project (ISP) on any topic or area of your interest under the mentorship of a faculty member. We have also recently introduced the option of an Abu Dhabi module for selected students of the September intake.

Campus Selection and Exchange
When you apply, we ask you to indicate your starting campus preference: Europe (Fontainebleau) or Asia (Singapore). Your campus preference does not have an impact on your admission into the programme. However, if you are admitted, depending on availability, we may ask you to start on the other campus. Everyone has the opportunity to spend at least one period on the other campus (from period three onwards). However, due to capacity restraints, we cannot guarantee that these will be your preferred period or periods. You may also choose to spend one period at one of our partner schools (Wharton, Kellogg and CEIBS).

We believe that the ability to communicate in more than one language will give you an advantage in the global job market. The MBA programme is taught exclusively in English, and therefore, fluency in English is a prerequisite. If English is not your mother tongue nor the language in which your university degree was taught, you will need a certification of proficiency in English such as the TOEFL or IELTS. If English is your mother tongue, you will instead need to supply proof of intermediate-level ability in one other commercially useful language. By graduation, all students will have to demonstrate basic-level ability in a third language.
The complete language policy document can be found on our website.
