The INSEAD alumni network is robust, diverse and globally connected to an extent few institutions can boast. With more than 52,000 Alumni distributed across 170 countries, our Alumni are citizens of the world, understanding how to balance local and global perspectives, and have “experienced the world as it ought to be” as one graduate claimed. This aspect of the INSEAD culture is very powerful and valuable in the 21st Century. In this smaller, connected world, it is critical that leaders view the world as a whole, and think and act both locally and globally. This has been part of the INSEAD culture for over 55 years.
The advice and encouragement that flows between INSEAD alumni is a very important tool in building business throughout the world. As our alumni have a strong bond with the INSEAD community they often return for their alumni on campus.
