With two fully-integrated campuses in Europe and Asia and over 80 different nationalities in the classroom, INSEAD’s accelerated MBA program offers a deep and profound multicultural experience. The MBA program runs in parallel on the school’s campuses in France and Singapore. Students also have the opportunity to visit the campus in Abu Dhabi to take part in an elective course, as well as take advantage of the alliance with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

The MBA curriculum is designed to quickly and thoroughly prepare students for a career in international business. The first few study periods are based on a structured series of 14 core courses. These courses cover all of the key management disciplines, as well as focusing on the environment in which business takes place. The second half of the program can be customized. Choosing 11 electives from a portfolio of more than 70, students create a unique mix of topics to support individual educational and professional goals. London MBAs can pursue a generalist path towards management or concentrate on a specific area, such as finance or entrepreneurship.

Throughout the core curriculum, students work in study groups of five to six. Once students begin their elective courses, groups are no longer predetermined.
