Overall trends of 2013

95% of our 2013
graduates reported
employment by
March 2014
In 2013, INSEAD MBA graduates
once again chose extraordinarily
diverse career paths that reflect the
wide spectrum of nationalities and
professional experiences of the class.
The evolution of the world economy
demands that our graduates attune their
career choices to address the needs of
today’s businesses. Some 95% of the
2013 graduates have reported receiving
an offer of employment by March 2014
in 64 countries and over 440 companies
around the world.

both their leadership potential and the
value they bring to the organisation on
day 1. We wish to thank all the alumni
who have contributed to our success by
informing us of trends in their industries
and helping current promotions in their
job search.
We are delighted to introduce our new

INSEAD is The Business School for the
World and we take this responsibility
seriously. During 2013 we have
strengthened our reach by growing
our team to include a member located
on our Abu Dhabi campus. Increased
career activities are now located on
all three campuses.

We are proud to present the statistics
contained in this report that once
again reflect the success of our
graduating class. I would like to thank
our students, recruiters and alumni as we
look forward to another exciting year
for INSEAD careers.

we support our students’ development
as future business leaders and we
strive to work with all our employers to

INSEAD MBA Graduates 2013

Perhaps reflecting a healthier outlook for
the global economy, 2013 saw a return to
a more balanced range of destinations
than in 2012.
Notably, recruitment in the finance
sector was up to 17% from a low of
14% the previous year. Similarly, 49%
of graduates joined the corporate
sectors, compared to 45% in 2012.
Correspondingly, there was a fall in the
number of graduates joining consulting
firms. In 2013 consulting accounted for
34% of appointments – down from 41%
the previous year.
Overall, salaries remained more-orless stable in 2013, especially in the
corporate sectors, although there
were very slight decreases in finance
and consulting. As usual, the range of
starting salaries was vast – from €21,150
to €298,000 – reflecting the reality that
many INSEAD graduates choose careers
in social innovation in developing
economies, while others head straight
for the world’s great financial centres.

Geographically, last year’s fall in
recruitment to Western Europe reversed
itself somewhat by rising back to 38%
(a 4 % increase). Numbers opting
to work in North America were also
slightly up and correspondingly slightly
down in Asia-Pacific. However, the
Asia-Pacific region remains the second
highest destination chosen by our
graduates. INSEAD students continue
to demonstrate that they are ready to
pursue careers all over the globe.

INSEAD’s
graduating
class truly is a
barometer of the

A World of Talent
A first-class business school
We attract some of the most talented
and ambitious young professionals in
the world. Drawn to the school by our
world-class faculty and unparalleled
international alumni network, they leave
INSEAD to create value and growth in
companies across the globe.
• Average GMAT score (2013): 702
One school, three campuses
and two intakes
The MBA programme runs in parallel on
two campuses in Europe (Fontainebleau,
France) and Asia (Singapore). Two
classes of approximately 500 participants
graduate every year: in July and
December respectively. This gives
employers the opportunity to recruit
twice during the year.












The most international business school
If you are a recruiter looking for
executives who are comfortable working
across national and linguistic borders,
both sensitive to other cultures and
proficient in local business practices,
then it is only natural to partner
with INSEAD. Our uniquely diverse
environment attracts young professionals
with a solid international experience.
They then learn from each other’s
differences and similarities, as well as
from our global curriculum and faculty,
before moving on to pursue careers
throughout the world.

• The alumni network includes
Chairmen, CEOs and other senior level
directors at a large number of global
companies including LVMH, L’Oréal,
Power Corporation of Canada, Roche
Holding Ltd, Danfoss, Statoil, Heineken,
AON, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs,
BASF, Sanofi-Aventis, McKinsey &
Company, Rio Tinto, Siemens,
Prudential Plc, Lloyds Banking Group,
Groupe Galeries Lafayette,
L’Occitane International.

Major international rankings: regularly
ranked in the top ten business
schools worldwide since 2000; number
2 in Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2012
ranking of international business
schools (non-US schools), number 2
in Forbes’ ranking of MBA programmes
outside the US in 2013 and number 5
(joint with Columbia) in the Financial
Times’ Global MBA ranking in 2014

An intensive preparation for
a successful career
INSEAD graduates do not just offer
recruiters the latest business insights.
They bring stamina, teamwork,
entrepreneurialism, organisational skills
and effectiveness in the face of pressure
to the companies they join. At INSEAD we
develop the capacity to master a large
amount of material in a short period of
time. In this high-pressure environment,
we foster collaborative skills through
group work in diverse teams.







The one-year programme provides
in-depth knowledge of conceptual
models and analytical tools in
Accounting, Entrepreneurship,
Economics, Finance, Marketing,
Organisational Behaviour and Strategy.

Dual-Degree Programme between
INSEAD and the John Hopkins University
Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced
International Studies (SAIS)
The INSEAD-SAIS Dual-Degree
Programme, launched in 2011, prepares
students for careers that combine
international relations and business
administration. Students admitted to
both programmes are able to complete
the two degrees in two and a half years,
instead of three years required to
complete the degrees separately, by
spending one and a half years at SAIS
and one year at INSEAD.

Job Locations
INSEAD continues to open doors all
over the world. In 2013, 64 countries –
even more than last year – recruited the
school’s MBA graduates.
In particular, 2013 saw a strengthening of
recruitment to Western Europe – rising
to 38% of the two graduating classes
from 34% last year. The UK accounted
for a significant 37% of this region’s jobs,
reflecting the British economy’s return
to growth and the partial recovery of the
finance sector. Similarly, North America
accounted for 11% of jobs, compared to
9% last year.

Although Asia Pacific remains the second
most popular region, for the first time
in several years, there was a slight fall
in the numbers of students joining
organisations there – down to 27%
from 29% in 2012. The most significant
decreases were in Hong Kong and India.
Singapore, as ever, remains the top
destination in Asia Pacific, thanks to the
presence of INSEAD’s Asia Campus and
its still-strong economy.

Within Southern Europe there were
strong fluctuations. The percentage of
students recruited to Spain fell sharply,
but the numbers working in Italy rose
considerably, leaving the region as a
whole stable compared to last year.
Within Africa and the Near/Middle
East, it was encouraging to note a wider
spread of countries – including Egypt,
Ethiopia, Kuwait, Swaziland and Zambia.
Nevertheless, the UAE still dominates
recruitment to the Middle East,
with South Africa also remaining a
favourite destination.

Career Changes

Region or country changes
Nationalities: who stays home and who goes abroad (1)
Total: 807

The appetite for career change remains
strong among our graduates. Around
84% of 2013 graduates switched
country of work, sector or functional
area, thanks to attending INSEAD,
while an extraordinary 25% of the entire
group succeeded in changing all three
of these parameters.
It is difficult to discern long-term
patterns in career change. In today’s
demanding world economy employers
expect new members to add value on
Day 1. The wide range of talent that
INSEAD students bring means that they
are sought after by many sectors for this
value. One such example is the move
to internal consultancy roles within a
wide range of companies to complement
the positions in traditional professional
service firms.
With respect to short-term trends, Latin
Americans were among this year’s most
enthusiastic expats, whereas in 2012
almost all of our Brazilian graduates
returned home. We remain vigilant to the
global trends this may indicate as Latin
American economies continue to mature.

Compensation trends
by region and country
Overall, after a slight increase in mean
and median salaries in 2012, salaries
and sign-on bonuses were back to 2011
levels in 2013. This small decrease was
evident in most regions – except in North
America, where salaries rose, and Latin
America and Northern Europe, where the
decline was more marked.

Range

in other regions, there is perhaps
surprising consistency in
post-graduation starting salaries
across the world.

The range of salaries – between €21,150
and €298,000 – was even greater than
in previous years, reflecting the vast
range of countries, sectors and roles
where INSEAD graduates accept jobs.
Nevertheless, although the mean and
median are lower in Southern Europe,
Latin America and Asia Pacific than

The long-term trend towards corporate
careers accelerated in 2013, with almost
a half (49%) of all INSEAD graduates
joining this sector, compared to 45% in
2012 and 38% in 2011.
This year there was particularly strong
interest in the Internet, software and
e-commerce employers from INSEAD
graduates – and vice versa. This again
reflects the growing needs of businesses
for data savvy talent. Notably, the
percentage of offers accepted in this
sector was also up on previous years.
Technology salaries increased
significantly in 2013, with the median
rising by more than 11% on 2012, as
did media salaries, where the median
increased by 10%. Meanwhile, median
salaries in consumer goods and retail
remained stable.
It was also interesting to note that
several companies in the consumer
goods, retail and technology sub-sectors
crossed the threshold of three hires in

2013, suggesting that they are building
long-term relationships with INSEAD
and that previous appointments have
proven successful. In addition, we took
great interest in the increased hiring of
internal consultants by the corporate
sectors and are curious to see whether
this trend will continue next year.
Geographically, Western Europe saw
the greatest growth in recruitment to the
corporate sectors. In 2013, this region
accounted for 40% of appointments, as
opposed to just 34% in 2012.

Consulting
Consulting continues to be a very
attractive sector for INSEAD students,
despite the fall in numbers hired
(from 41% of graduates in 2012 to 34%
in 2013). Much of this decrease is due
to a reduction in students who are
sponsored by their firms (-21%).
Across the sector, there was a small
decrease of the base salaries, but
sign-on bonuses remain at around the
same level as in 2012. 73% of consulting
jobs come with sign-on bonuses –
far higher than any other sector.

Geographically, North America and
Switzerland offer by far the highest
consulting salaries and India the lowest.
We have observed a particular interest
from the consulting firms to recruit
talents with local language skills and
knowledge of the local markets to better
respond to the demand of their clients.
Although the number of students joining
the consulting sector in Asia Pacific
remains strong and slightly better than
2012, this factor may have influenced
students to consider other locations like
Western Europe.
Another factor in this year’s decline
in consulting recruitment is probably
the resurgence of finance and the
increasing number of corporate-sector
employers that offer attractive rotational
programmes or internal consulting
opportunities for MBA graduates.

After last year’s all time low in finance
hiring (14% of jobs), we were pleased
to see an upturn in 2013 to 17%. Even
more positively, the picture within the
sector seems more balanced, with
less reliance on investment banking,
increased recruitment by venture capital
and private equity (traditionally viewed
as difficult for MBA graduates to enter
immediately following graduation) and a
new vogue for real estate careers.
In terms of job descriptions, internal
consulting and company-wide strategy
roles increased sharply in 2013. Western
Europe remains the most popular
destination for finance recruits at
41% of the total, but it is also pleasing
to see more graduates heading for
Africa and the Near/Middle East (9%
in 2013 compared to 6% in 2012) and
Central/Eastern Europe (4% of finance
appointments – up from 1% last year).
Salaries rose sharply in Western Europe,
with the median rising to €94,400 from
€87,500 in 2012. There was an even
steeper increase in Asia Pacific, where
the median rose to €88,700 from €76,300
last year.

INSEAD MBA Graduates 2013

Summer Internships
55% of our December 2013 class
completed a summer internship, most
of them relatively close to campus in
Western Europe or Asia Pacific.

Venture capital and private equity also
proved attractive to our students – with
6% and 4% of interns respectively.
In 2013, the number of organisations
employing INSEAD students over the
summer rose from 164 in 2012 to 188.
Salaries ranged from €64 a month for
social impact work in India to €12,900
a month for consulting in Russia. This
again reflects the diversity of our MBA
graduates as well as the large spectrum
of summer projects.

This year, the most popular sectors were
(in order): consumer & luxury goods
(16% of INSEAD interns); consulting
(16%); high-tech/telecommunications
(12%); investment banking (9%); and
perhaps most notably public sector/
social impact (7%) – right up there with
more traditional MBA career sectors.

A wide choice of
recruiting methods

The Career Development Centre team
provides advice and assistance for
recruiters throughout the hiring process.
We are committed to working closely
with organisations to find an INSEAD
recruitment strategy that fits their needs.
Recruiters can access 1,000+ MBA, 220+
EMBA and a network of over 47,600
Alumni through our offices. Identical
opportunities to hire INSEAD MBAs
are provided twice a year on both of
our campuses (Europe and Asia). The
number of MBA participants taking
part in campus exchanges between
Singapore, Fontainebleau (France) the
Wharton School of Business, Kellogg
School of Management (US) and CEIBS
(China) has stabilized. In 2013 around
70% of participants chose to move at
least once between campuses. Given
such mobility, it is vital that recruitment
messages reach all participants.

INSEAD MBA Graduates 2013

Ideally, companies achieve this by
having a physical presence on both
campuses or by taking advantage of
our video-conference facilities. We
recommend mixing and matching
the following recruitment methods
according to your needs. Please do not
hesitate to contact us to discuss your
best approach for successful
recruitment at INSEAD.
Recruit on campus
If you wish to build corporate brand
image and increase awareness of
your company’s career opportunities,
on-campus recruitment is usually the
best approach. This consists of an oncampus recruiting event with interviews
held at a later date. Employer visits take
place during the two main recruitment
periods (March–June and September–
December). Interviews can be arranged
on both campuses, taking advantage of
our interview rooms, video-conference
facilities, and the web-based
interview-scheduling system on our
CareerGlobe platform.

Participate in a Networking Expo
The networking expo is a 2-hour
multi-industry event taking place in
an afternoon with a limited number
of organisations invited. This event
gives you the opportunity to meet with
students early in the campaign – and you
will be able to display your promotional
materials and banners in an informal
setting. Organisations participating in
this event are invited to interview oncampus the day after, thus reducing your
travel costs, and giving you early access
to top talent.
Participate in a Networking Evening
Participating in a multi-industry
networking evening, where a limited
number of companies are invited, gives
you a chance to network face to face with
students in an exclusive setting.
Post a job description
At any time during the year, descriptions
of career opportunities (full-time
positions or internships) can be posted
on our new user-friendly website,
CareerGlobe, free of charge and viewed
by MBA participants on both campuses,
EMBA participants and Alumni across
the globe. The site makes it possible
for applicants to respond directly to the
recruiting organisation.
Contact individuals directly
through the CV Book
The CVs of our MBA and EMBA
participants are an important recruiting
tool, whether companies plan to recruit
on campus or by direct contact. For
each class, we publish a CV e-Book with

many useful search capabilities, such as
languages, previous work experience
and educational background.
Recruit for internships and projects
The January intake has the
opportunity to work on a July–August
internship or project during the
two-month summer break. Managers
hiring INSEAD MBA participants in
this way benefit from having highly
motivated, self-starting individuals work
on specific business issues.
Career Development Centre
sponsored events
We arrange many additional events
throughout the year. Examples include:
panel discussions on careers in
specific industries or women’s career
issues; seminars on presentation skills
or case interview techniques; and
preparation for finance interviews.
All of these provide participants with
specialised insights and allow the
companies involved to promote their
brand on campus.
Clubs
INSEAD has a wide variety of sectorspecific participant clubs, including
consulting, healthcare, energy, private
equity, marketing, entrepreneurship
and NGOs. Working with the clubs on
their various events enables recruiters
to target – and network with – groups of
motivated participants very efficiently.

Important INSEAD
recruiting guidelines

Non-disclosure of grades:
INSEAD’s selection criteria demand a
rigorous evaluation of intellectual and
professional abilities. To obtain the MBA
degree is a significant achievement. As a
matter of policy, grades are considered
confidential during the recruitment
process. However, participants will be
able to communicate whether or not
they are on the official Dean’s List of high
performers. Full transcripts of grades
can be obtained only after graduation.
Equal consideration for
participants on both campuses:
Participants are selected from a
centralised applicant pool, so both
campuses have roughly the same
MBA profile. Recruiters are therefore
expected to consider all candidates
regardless of their campus location,
including those on the exchange with
Wharton, Kellogg and CEIBS. It is also
in employers’ interests to target both
INSEAD campuses, as – after the first four
months of the programme – participants
are able to move freely between
sites every two months. The Career
Development Centre has

comprehensive systems in place,
such as video-conferencing equipment,
to facilitate this process.
Non-discrimination:
As an international business school,
INSEAD adheres to the principles of
equality and impartiality. We expect
companies recruiting at INSEAD to
respect these principles.
