Widely recognised as international thought leaders in their fields, INSEAD faculty are celebrated for the impact of their research, and their innovative teaching methods and materials. Across our three campuses, they give rise to a vibrant intellectual environment.
At the heart of our school’s mission is the creation and dissemination of knowledge – along with the intention to influence business practice for the greater good.
This year, our prolific faculty continued to produce world-class research that they translated into meaningful, practical management education. INSEAD students and participants often describe their classroom experiences as “transformational”. Their professors are known to connect theory into real-world contexts and synthesise diverse student perspectives into powerful learning.
In 2014/15, INSEAD opened the Emerging Markets Institute (EMI), the latest of the school’s “Centres of Excellence” that provide important gateways between academia and practice. We launched an app for our online publication, Knowledge, to offer the public greater access to our faculty’s research and views. Our PhD programme thrived while our faculty and students also garnered recognition for their contributions to business scholarship.
Emerging Markets Institute
The Emerging Markets Institute quickly has established itself as a leading think-tank on economic development and business in emerging economies. By 2050, it is projected that more than half the world’s thirty largest economies will be countries currently classified as “emerging”. Knowledge in this area will prove to be invaluable. However, existing data are inadequate for leveraging these opportunities.
The EMI aims to develop credible and timely information for pedagogical materials, research publications and data sets related to these dynamic growth markets. The Distinguished Fellows Programme invites leading academics and executives to contribute to research activities at the Institute.
To establish the Emerging Markets Institute, INSEAD partnered with the Singapore Economic Development Board, the lead government agency for planning and executing strategies to enhance Singapore’s position as a leading global business hub.
