THE INSEAD FUND

The Power of Collective Giving 
For the past 60 years, INSEAD has cultivated a culture of entrepreneurship, diversity, independence, rigour and relevance. As we begin our next chapter, it is time to build on this legacy and strengthen our culture of giving

The INSEAD Fund
Change starts here
We’re in this together. As a school, we have embraced the goal of transforming business and society. As a community, we will achieve it. 

 

The INSEAD Fund makes this work possible. Serving as the school’s annual fund, the INSEAD Fund uses the power of collective giving to support specific needs that advance our broader mission. It enables INSEAD to champion business as a force for good — today, tomorrow and into the future. 

Gifts to the INSEAD Fund have an immediate impact, providing the school with the financial flexibility to: 

  • Enhance how we equip responsible business leaders 
  • Address crucial needs that arise during the academic year
  • Embark on new research that shapes management practices
  • Innovate our academic courses and campus facilities 
  • Increase the value of your INSEAD education 

 

Contributions to the INSEAD Fund also count towards the Campaign for INSEAD: A Force for Good. One of our goals is to encourage 50% of our alumni network to participate in the Campaign. Every gift makes a difference.

Please consider making an INSEAD Fund gift this year. By doing so, you join in our mission to champion business as a force for good. Always together, let’s transform the world.

How the fund works

The INSEAD Fund functions as a “living endowment.” This means that gifts can be likened to the interest generated by the school’s endowment. For example, if collective gifts to the INSEAD Fund totalled €4 million in a year, those funds would equal the interest available for spending from a €100 million endowment in the same time frame.

All annual gifts — including Giving Day contributions and Reunion gifts — count towards the INSEAD Fund. Gifts to the INSEAD Fund also count towards The Campaign for INSEAD: A Force for Good. Donors may include alumni, students, staff, faculty and friends of INSEAD.

Investing where it matters most

 

The Dean’s Fund/Greatest Impact is fuelled by the collective giving of INSEAD alumni, students, staff, faculty and friends. The fund sustains vital programmes like scholarships and research, and supports emerging opportunities, including innovative projects that arise during the academic year. Because gifts to the Dean’s Fund/Greatest Impact are unrestricted, they give INSEAD the flexibility to invest in areas that demonstrate the greatest potential for advancing business as a force for good. Resources are used under the direction and at the discretion of the Dean.

Attracting top talent from around the world

 

Scholarships keep our school competitive, advance our mission and expand our diversity. They enable the world’s most talented students to choose INSEAD and enhance the school’s dynamic learning environment. Gifts to Scholarships support both current funds (a source of immediate revenue) and endowed funds (invested in perpetuity) for new and existing scholarships.

For young alumni — those who graduated from INSEAD in the past 15 years — INSEAD also offers the Tomorrow’s Leaders Programme (TLP). Through TLP, donors can create named scholarships that support the next generation of INSEAD students.

 

Scholarships

 

“Scholarships allow INSEAD to do what it does best: attract the world’s most talented, inspiring and ambitious students — and then equip them to make a real difference in business and society.”

Urs Peyer, Dean, Degree Programmes

Driving sustainable development and change

 

The Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society (HGIBS) is dedicated to shaping discussions and promoting action that drives progress toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

Through research, teaching, engagement and outreach, HGIBS strives to lead the way in transforming business education and mobilising stakeholders for impact. Gifts to HGIBS support four areas: the research of sustainable models, inclusion and wellbeing; the development of transformational learning experiences that open minds and inspire solutions; the engagement of students, alumni, faculty, staff and corporate partners as agents of change; and the integration of INSEAD’s efforts to champion business as a force for good.

“We need to convene the thought leaders, innovators, investors and entrepreneurs who can affect real change. This is how we turn steps forward into strides towards a sustainable future.”

Creating spaces to equip future leaders

 

Reimagining INSEAD’s campuses is integral to the school’s next chapter. Our campus renewal projects aim to better accommodate INSEAD’s growing community, enhance campus experiences, incorporate state-of-the-art educational methods and create new spaces for learning and engagement. Gifts to Campus Renewal support new models of teaching, new opportunities for collaboration and new ideas for innovation across campus.

Enriching our intellectual environment

 

Widely recognised as international experts in their fields, INSEAD faculty shape the school’s intellectual environment and push the boundaries of management research. To sustain this level of excellence, INSEAD must continue to invest in attracting and retaining world-class talent while also providing faculty with the resources they need to pursue pioneering research. Gifts to Faculty & Research support both of these critical areas.

Advancing technology for good

 

Digital@INSEAD focuses on harnessing digital technology to accelerate global prosperity and address urgent challenges in business and society. Through research, education and outreach, the initiative aims to generate new insights and frameworks for today’s business leaders and nurture a global community of scholars and practitioners. Gifts to Digital@INSEAD support these efforts to shape management practices and promote technology as a force for good.
