INSEAD
has been a pioneer in setting up a multi-campus business school as a way to increase the global presence and nature of its faculty and curriculum.[15][16] A Harvard Business School
Harvard Business School
case study, for instance, explores its approach to business education in a global context and how it functions with a multi-campus setting.[17] Degree programmes[edit] MBA programme[edit] INSEAD's MBA participants can take the MBA's core courses at either or both of its Europe and Asia campuses[18] (as well as an elective MBA module at its Middle East campus).[19] They follow the same core courses in parallel regardless of campus, and there are faculty who teach on both the Europe and Asia campuses as well as permanent faculty at each of the three campuses who live and work in the respective regions.[20] INSEAD
INSEAD
offers two MBA schedules per year: one starting in September which takes ten months to complete, and a 12-month promotion starting in January for students who want to complete a summer internship.[21] The INSEAD
INSEAD
MBA curriculum comprises required core courses and electives. The core covers traditional management disciplines including finance, economics, organizational behavior, accounting, ethics, marketing, statistics, operations management, international political analysis, supply chain management, leadership and corporate strategy. There are 75 electives on offer[22] in areas such as accounting and control, decision sciences, economics and political science, entrepreneurship and family enterprise, finance, and organisational, strategy, marketing, technology and operations management. Students are required to speak two languages upon entry and a third by graduation. Executive MBA programme[edit] INSEAD
INSEAD
has two EMBA Executive MBA programmes. The Global Executive MBA (GEMBA),[23] and the Tsinghua INSEAD
INSEAD
EMBA (TIEMBA).[24] Both EMBA programmes are master's-level degree programmes that take place on a part-time, modular basis. The programmes offer experienced business executives an intensive 14–17-month modular course that takes place in modular periods (approximately every six to seven weeks). Each period on campus is between one and two weeks' duration. For the GEMBA programme the physical time on campus represents 12 weeks in total with participants going to all three campuses (Fontainebleau, France, Abu Dhabi, and Singapore). For the TIEMBA programme the physical time on campus represents 12 weeks in total with participants alternating between Tsinghua's campus in Beijing, China,[25] and INSEAD's campus in Singapore. Both the GEMBA and TIEMBA programmes include a schedule of group coaching, 360-degree assessments and team activities designed to develop a leadership style, called the Leadership
Leadership
Development Programme.[26] Executive Master in Coaching and Consulting for Change[edit] The Executive Master in Coaching and Consulting for Change is a specialized master's degree. It provides a grounding in basic drivers of human behavior and the hidden dynamics of organizations. Integrating business education with a range of psychological disciplines, the programme enables participants to understand themselves and others at a fundamental level, which prepares them to assume roles in organisations, individual and organizational development and change management.[27][28] PhD programme[edit] The INSEAD
INSEAD

Management
is a doctoral degree in business to prepare students for a career in academia. It requires four to five years of full-time study - the first two years devoted to coursework, while from the third and fourth (or sometimes fifth) years dedicated to research and dissertation.[29] Students have the option to start their studies on either the Asia (Singapore) or Europe (France) campus,[30] and do an exchange in North America (USA) through the INSEAD-Wharton Alliance.[31] There are eight areas of specialization: Accounting, Decision Sciences, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Marketing, Organisational Behavior, Strategy, and Technology and Operations Management.[32] INSEAD
INSEAD
offers fellowships, whereby students receive full tuition fee waiver, annual stipend and research support funding.[33] Master in Finance[edit] INSEAD’s Master in Finance
Finance
(MFin) teaches participants finance and accounting skills on a par with those taught in an MBA programme, and also offers leadership and management perspectives. The program is offered in a modular format over a 20-month period to allow professionals to study while continuing to work. Participants take time off from work for each of the five modules (2–3 weeks each) to take classes on campus, and continue working in between.[34] Executive education[edit] INSEAD
INSEAD
holds both company/firm specific and open enrolment executive education programmes at its campuses in Europe and Asia and the Middle East, as well as in partnership with corporate universities. Participants usually come from senior or top management, with many years of experience within their company or industry and younger 'high-potentials' identified as being key in succession strategies within their companies. Approximately 12,000 executives from over 125 countries undertake courses or programmes at INSEAD
INSEAD
each year.[35] In 2011, INSEAD
