The INSEAD PhD is a 5-year full-time programme ( The first 2 years are dedicated to coursework, while the 3rd to 5th years is dissertation phase. As a PhD student, you are exposed to cutting-edge research methodologies and practice through a close working relationship with academic experts.

The result is that our graduates receive top placements ( at Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, MIT, Chicago Booth, Oxford, LBS, LSE, HKUST, CEIBS, National University of Singapore, etc.
