Thought I'd share the key takeaways from my INSEAD research.

- September (10 months) and January (10 months plus summer) intakes
- Suggested to start in Singapore (2 of 5 semesters) and then move to Fontainebleau (3 of 5 semesters) to avoid European winter!
- Short programme, but can use the time to broaden yourself out, learn more general management skills and reevaluate your options
- International experience is key
- Strong entrepreneurship focus – many courses on new business ventures, raising funds etc.
- Most popular electives are entrepreneurship – 25% of electives in this field
- Multi-geographical setup means it is not always easy to arrange meetings – staff travel to other campuses a lot
- Alliances with (inter alia) Wharton and Kellogg
- 10,500 executive participants pass through campus each year
- Upon graduation, approx. 85% of student change career in some way (section, function and/or geography

This is from discussions with adcoms, professors, support staff, current students, alums and admission consultants. It is not complete, I may have put my own spin on things (linked to my specific interests) and some stuff may well have changed, but I'm hoping to spark a bit of debate and hopefully help your applications too.

Any thoughts?

Hello again. Anyone know what the recommenders' questions are for September 2015 applicants?

My application is live but I haven't added my recommenders yet (it seems the only way to get the questions is to add them and then they receive a link to the template form).

Curious to know...

Thanks!

Although I am not sure of the source, they are the only ones who have published recommendation questions.

Thank you, although by comparing the other essay prompts with those in my current application, they are out-of-date. Probably the recommender questions will be out-of-date too.

I will share the questions once I send the link to my recommenders (this week).

Global INSEAD Day on 12th September 2014. It is such an amazing concept to keep the diversity alive and feel part of INSEAD diverse cultural experiences even after you leave INSEAD.
