Online Learning Solutions

In our increasingly interconnected world, the pace and depth of change confronting individuals, companies and whole industries are greater than ever. To keep up, timely delivery of learning and development is essential. INSEAD is committed to designing leading-edge digital solutions that deliver business skills and insights at the scale and speed required by organisations today.

Customised Online Programmes for Executive Education

We have leveraged our faculty’s deep knowledge of strategy, innovation and global market trends to produce impactful Customised Online Programmes for Executive Education. Specifically filmed for each company, the online programmes are built around high-quality lectures from our school’s thought leaders. Along with discussion forums and quizzes, learners are engaged in a learning community to exchange ideas. The highly impactful “Action Learning Projects” (ALPs) allow participants immediately to apply new knowledge back to their corporate contexts and even their daily jobs.

Customised Online Programmes are emerging as a great complement to our traditional in-person programmes. We can now take key insights and content from our top management programmes and cascade them out to managers across the company. While delivering our programmes online greatly increases access, the high quality and customisation of these solutions ensure the commitment necessary for effective learning. The learner engagement has been outstanding and completion rates have been in excess of 85%. INSEAD’s initial online courses already have been recognized by top industry awards

The First Online Course for MBA Students

This year, INSEAD launched its first online course for MBA students (’16D). Prior to even arriving on campus, the new students completed a fully online course on CV writing that has been described as user-friendly, intuitive and effective. Building on this success, we are now working on a series of online courses for the Career Development Centre. The goal is to allow students to hit the ground running with their job search in our fast paced and highly intensive MBA programme.

Assuring a Leading Online Platform

To have the greatest impact from our online courses, we have invested in deepening our expertise and capabilities for digital learning platforms. We have reviewed offers from dozens of technology providers and we have conducted extensive user testing – involving scores of participants, faculty and staff – to better understand the drivers of outstanding user experience for online learning.

Looking Ahead

Even as INSEAD develops innovative new online courses for Executive Education and Degree programmes, our plan is to leverage this online capability to offer our global alumni community lifelong learning opportunities. It is a way to reimagine our connection with alumni and strengthen our global network for the future.
