During the second half of the programme, INSEAD offers you an unparalleled range of over 75 innovative electives, all taught from an international perspective. You can tailor the programme to meet your specific needs and career objectives by choosing 11 electives from a selection of more than 75 courses (offered MBA Programme 2012 11 across both campuses).

“The most important talent of a leader today is the capability to manage global complexity and global cultural diversity. I do not know of any other institution which teaches and prepares leaders for this new future as well as INSEAD is doing.”
Klaus Schwab, Founder & Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum
There is no single preferred teaching method at INSEAD. The faculty are free to choose the method they believe fits best with the content of the session. You will, therefore, experience a wide variety of teaching styles, including case-studies, computer simulations and role-plays. What matters to INSEAD is not the method chosen but the result: the effectiveness of your learning experience. Expect to see a lot of class participation and make use of the year groups diversity!
