INSEAD has a 172-strong faculty that teaches courses across nine academic areas.  In addition to their teaching responsibilities, these professors help organize and direct INSEAD’s research efforts and Centres of Excellence, which range in focus from the Emerging Markets Institute to the INSEAD Innovation and Policy Initiative.


INSEAD takes advantage of a number of different teaching methods in its classrooms, allowing its faculty to design courses that utilize the case study method, computer simulation exercises, role play, lectures and class discussions.  Upon their arrival on campus, students are assigned to a diverse study group of five to six students that work together on a number of class projects throughout their first few periods at INSEAD.

INSEAD accepts two classes per year, one beginning in September and graduating the following June, the other starting in January and concluding the following December.  Regardless of the start date, classes go through the same curriculum and follow an academic calendar divided into five eight-week periods.  Each period ends with exams and a short break before the next period ensues, and January entrants also have an eight-week summer break during which they are encouraged to complete internships.  During the first half of their studies, students must enroll in INSEAD’s 14 core courses, which cover foundational business topics including accounting, marketing, organizational behavior, operations management and strategy, among others.  Students take six core courses in their first period and six in their second period, in addition to a business ethics course that lasts across the first two periods.  In the third period, students complete their remaining two core courses and are given their first opportunity to better sculpt their education by taking four elective courses.  The fourth period consists entirely of four elective courses and the fifth period concludes with three electives.  INSEAD offers over 75 electives across its nine academic areas.

Students are asked to choose their preferred starting campus when they apply to the MBA program and are generally given that preferred location for their first two periods, though that is not guaranteed.  Six weeks after beginning their studies, students are given the opportunity to express their preference for the location of their third, fourth and fifth periods, which also includes the option of participating in Wharton and Kellogg campus exchanges.  Though INSEAD does ensure that all students will have the opportunity to study at its Singapore and European campuses, it does not guarantee that students’ preferences for the timing of those stays will be met.

Other MBA Degree Options

In addition to its 10-month full-time MBA Program, INSEAD also offers a Global Executive MBA program for experienced managers.  The length of this part-time program is determined by the campus at which students start—Fontainebleau, Singapore or Abu Dhabi—and ranges from 53 to 60 days over 14 to 17 months.
