INSEAD’s highly selective PhD programme remains one of the world’s best in terms of student intake, research output and the quality of schools where our graduates are ultimately placed.

Indeed, our eleven graduates in 2016/2017 not only brought our total number of alumni to just under 200 but also went on to join truly top universities, including Columbia, Carnegie Mellon and Tsinghua. There, they will continue to fly the flag for INSEAD’s unique global approach to business research and boost our reputation throughout the world.

Our diverse community

In June 2016, we welcomed over 60 of the 198 alumni back to the Europe Campus for a one-day celebration and conference. They came together from all corners of the globe to discuss the triumphs and challenges of transitioning from PhD student to fully-fledged professor with current students and faculty.

Achieving gender balance

Another cause for celebration is our 50% female intake in September 2016 and continued strong recruitment of women for September 2017. As well as affirming INSEAD’s commitment to gender equality and adding to diversity on campus, this marks our contribution to increasing the proportion of women in the profession of business academia.

One further highlight of the year is the launch of our new online brochure, which brings this outstanding programme to life through videos, images and stories.
