INSEAD’s Master in Management (MIM) is designed to empower the next generation of well-rounded, agile-thinking and innovative individuals who are ready to make a positive impact in today's society. The Admissions Team is looking for people with intellectual curiosity, personal qualities to contribute to the many activities at INSEAD and a desire to stretch themselves in a rigorous academic programme.
INSEAD’s Executive MBA programme is intensive, rigorous and challenging. To ensure that we bring the best talent to the class, applicants must either take the INSEAD Assessment, the GMAC Executive Assessment (EA) or the GMAT – all of which provide a uniform and standardised way of evaluating candidates’ aptitude to cope with the intensity and breadth of the programme.
The whole (INSEAD) experience essentially puts diversity at the core of our learning process.
At INSEAD, we look for people with intellectual curiosity and a desire to stretch themselves in a rigorous programme such as our one-year MBA. We welcome applications from around the world regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, or financial status. Our aim is to build an exciting, dynamic and diverse student body.
