INSEAD is not just a business school experience, it is a life experience. The intensity of the program both academically and socially forges a very strong bond between classmates, and the dual campus structure and numerous opportunities for travel only serve to reinforce that.
The career services could improve significantly. Most companies come to our school because of its reputation but career services could help students more on those companies where the school does not current contacts.
Best European business school in the rankings, strongest alumni network, highest student diversity, outstanding faculty, friendly colleagues, good placements after MBA and supportive partner community. And all of this only in 1 year.
Networking with Alumni should have happened in a more integrated way within the MBA year.
It's truly the most international program out there in terms of student body, language diversity, campus location, study material, instruction, job placement, and general outlook. Though a bit cheesy, INSEAD's slogan "The Business School for the World" rings true.
Career center needs to step up recruitment effort (e.g. hire ex-industry network that knows people to help place students) rather than relying on companies to come to them. Also most applicants to consulting jobs rely on fellow sponsored-students to give mock interviews... the school could have done more than just that.
The diversity at INSEAD is unparalleled. I cannot imagine being teamed up on a group project with a Spanish architect, a French management consultant, an Indian private banker and an Israeli intelligence officer.
10 months seems too short. An additional 3 to 6 months would be better.
Without a doubt, INSEAD's diversity and two campuses are unique and unrivaled, and making it one of the world's best MBA programs. Moreover, the 1-year program is much better than 2 years (more effective), especially if you already have a business undergraduate degree. Interestingly enough, 2-year vs. 1-year is now a leading discussion in U.S. schools, and so Kellogg has now launched a 1 -year program... in my opinion this trend will continue, all following INSEAD which started this 50+ years ago.
The fact that the campus is 40+ min away from a major airport and major city is a challenge... from interviews to bringing in speakers and probably hiring top faculty... I would suggest evaluate moving the European campus into a city center.
The most diverse program in the world. Best place to learn soft skills.
Make it a 12 month program to give students a more forgiving pace to consider career issues more thoughtfully
INSEAD is the most global business school experience imaginable. The student body is extraordinarily diverse, and the opportunity to study on 3 continents in just 10 months guarantees a truly international experience. INSEAD's reputation for teaching strategy is second to none and more top consultancies hire from INSEAD than any other business school.
The administration should take MBA courses on how to run a business. INSEAD is run poorly. Students express frustration about the MBA office much more often than they should. When suggestions are made, administration is defensive. As a result, they do not have any authority in the students' eyes.
