INSEAD LGBT Scholarships

INSEAD is all about diversity, right? On a campus where no one culture dominates, everyone at INSEAD is a minority in one way or another. Yet ironically, because diversity is so firmly woven into the institution’s DNA, not much institutional attention is paid to the specific concerns of individual...

Hi RBBmba, Yes, I have helped Indians without international experience get into INSEAD. Be very careful, though. There's a reason INSEAD wants people with a certain profile. It has little to do with how "good" you are or what it takes to "get in". It's about fit. I've been visiting top European busi...

Hi Pratyush, It is possible to get in to INSEAD without international experience, but it depends on the rest of your profile. A 760 GMAT is an encouraging start, but not sufficient by itself. I interviewed the only applicant (the only person!) I've ever seen with an 800 GMAT when I was coordinating ...


Nice comment, woojet. The GMAT can be a tremendous ego-suck, no question. It's certainly an inordinate time-drain for many otherwise super-high-flying young professionals. That said - the ball is moving, particularly for Indian applicants. It used to be that a good international footprint with a gre...


Hi JuliaK, If you can get your score up, there's no penalty for taking the GMAT a few times. If you take it 5 or 6 or more times and keep getting the same result or lower - well, that begins to anchor your result, doesn't it? But if you do get a good score on one of the trials - breaking 75th percen...


Hi All, I've been following this thread and just wanted to add my two cents to some of the recent posts. WooJet - I recognize the awesomeness of INSEAD in your tone of voice!! A bit like sucking a torrent from a giant firehose though, isn't it?! I'm wondering if we met during the CV reviews? I'm one...


Congratulations, Nikola! Where will you be going?

Haha - Glad Fonty's going well! Looking forward to meeting you in Singapore!
