In February 2020, INSEAD, one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools will be opening INSEAD San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation, solidifying its global presence, in addition to the campuses in Europe (Fontainebleau), Asia (Singapore) and the Middle East (Abu Dhabi).
INSEAD is bringing its global business insights and perspectives, unique among graduate business schools, gained from decades of working with international executives and global organisations.
In its first year, the INSEAD San Francisco Hub will offer a tailored selection of executive development programs relevant to the Americas from a portfolio of 50+ global programs. These open enrollment programs will be Transition to General Management, International Directors Programme, Integrating Performance and Progress, Blue Ocean Strategy, Leading Digital Transformation and Innovation and The Future of AI in partnership with Singularity University.
INSEAD will also utilise the new facility to hold custom designed programs for US and international companies.
Ilian Mihov, INSEAD Dean said, “From our origins in postwar Europe, INSEAD has distinguished itself in bringing together diverse people and perspectives to drive learning and build bridges as we develop responsible business leaders. Coming to North America opens an important new chapter in this journey. We are deeply grateful to our many alumni donors who made possible the transformation of this historic building into a state-of-the-art facility for learning and exchange.”
Dean of Innovation, Peter Zemsky who oversaw the development of the new concept said that “As tech innovation goes global, business leaders everywhere need to rapidly transform their strategies and organisations.
At the same time, tech leaders need to adapt to the dramatically shifting expectations about the impact of their products on societies worldwide. INSEAD is uniquely placed to facilitate this learning through our global faculty and network.”
INSEAD has been a consistent pioneer in management education with a track record of many firsts over its 60-year history.
