Is it difficult getting into the INSEAD MBA program? Also, how respected is it in the US?

Roughly at the Wharton and M7 level in terms of professor and student body quality. Well known especially in (ex)consulting circles in NYC and SF. Getting more and more weight in entrepreneurship and tech. Hard to compare popularity outside business circles, laymen in the US wouldn’t know INSEAD same as laymen outside of the US wouldn’t know Kellogg or Booth (other M7s mostly known for their undergrad programs).

It’s roughly comparable to a non HSW M7 school. Not many people outside of the business world are familiar with Insead in the US.

Not difficult compared to Harvard from what I’ve seen anecdotally, but you can’t be a lemon either and be completely stupid. Same reputation as a t15 to t20 school in the US, whether that’s accurate or not that’s just what I’ve picked up

funny

It’s brand carries further in UK / EU than some other T15s though

Better to go T15 in US, but it’s top tier internationally
