In Episode 31 we discuss the universe of INSEAD's student clubs which are run by students and supported by the school. They play a vital role in the student experience.

Our clubs cover a broad range of topics from professional, social to sports. A large proportion of the student population is honing their leadership skills by being in the management team of clubs. There are 40+ clubs at INSEAD. 

Campus activities or online events are organised by MBA student clubs and help to sharpen your leadership skills and enable you to explore and pursue new interests or old passions by becoming a member.

Professional clubs 

A wide range of student-run professional clubs works closely with the INSEAD Student Life department and the INSEAD Career Development Centre. They organise regular networking and speaker events on campus, as well as webinars, competitions or "career treks" further afield. Some of the larger clubs also organise prominent annual forums and conferences, like the Private Equity Conference, the Women in Business Conference and the Global Luxury Forum. 

Non-Professional clubs

In addition to our gyms offering regular fitness classes on both campuses (and the squash court in France), we have many clubs offering a wide variety of sports and leisure activities to network and enable you to pick up valuable new skills. There are also opportunities to represent INSEAD at inter-business-school events, such as the MBA Regatta and the MBA Golf Challenge.
