Admissions Requirements

STRONG LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL

INSEAD is looking for applicants who can demonstrate their potential as leaders. We will consider your professional experience and past performance when assessing your application. Participants in our current class have an average of 13 years work experience, and at least three years in a management role in charge of teams and/or projects.

ACADEMIC CAPACITY

The INSEAD GEMBA is intensive, rigorous and challenging. You must have a sound academic foundation: a bachelor's degree or equivalent from a recognised college or university (although in exceptional circumstances, we may waive this requirement). 

INTERNATIONAL OUTLOOK

We attract applicants with cross-cultural sensitivity and an international outlook. We consider applicants who have lived, worked, or studied abroad or who are working for international companies or on an international level with clients, suppliers or other stakeholders.

ABILITY TO CONTRIBUTE

We seek candidates who demonstrate a clear desire for intellectual growth, both in the classroom and through working on group projects. Participants are expected to contribute proactively and share the insights they have gained throughout their professional and personal experience.


Application Procedure

To apply to the INSEAD GEMBA programme, you must submit an online application form and the necessary supporting documentation. After submission, you will be emailed a confirmation of receipt and notification of any missing elements. Once your application is completed, we aim to notify you of the next steps within 5 business days. 

INSEAD has one Admissions team responsible for processing all EMBA applications. Please recognise delays may happen due to time zone differences and public holidays.
