Volunteering for a National Alumni Association, National Alumni Club or Global Club

More than 60 National Alumni Associations (NAAs), National Alumni Clubs, and Global Clubs around the world (including one near you!) are engaging, networking with and serving their communities. Volunteers such as association/club presidents, committee members and others organize events, drive association membership, support alumni in their careers and strengthen overall local alumni engagement efforts.
I volunteer for INSEAD to give back to a community from which I have derived strength and conviction of belief that collectively we can make this world a better place. Sadia Khan, MBA'95D

President, INSEAD Alumni Association (IAA)

Serving as President of the National Alumni Association NAA France is an excellent opportunity to give back to the school that gave me so much, and to stay closely connected to the dynamic community of INSEAD alumni in the country… and the world! I encourage all alumni to get involved. Thomas Bittner, MBA'75

INSEAD has come of age at a critical moment for the world. Supporting scholarship and academic excellence through giving to INSEAD is my way of investing in the future.

Emma Goltz, MBA'98J

INSEAD Alumni Fund (IAF) Chair

In my role as an IAF volunteer, I am lucky enough to interact and organise events with fellow alumni, while helping out the school that has brought me so much… not only during my MBA, but also as an INSEAD alumnus. Diederik Van Rappard, MBA'99J

Serving the Young Alumni Community

Young Alumni Initiative (YAI) Ambassadors (first 10 years after graduation) around the world are using their skills as connectors to build engagement among their classmates. From driving attendance at the one-year reunion, to encouraging participation-level giving to fostering a lifelong bond with INSEAD, the YAI Ambassadors play a crucial role in the development of INSEAD.

Become a YAI Ambassador
Help INSEAD stay connected with your promotion by encouraging engagement and communicating the importance of giving back

Supporting young alumni engagement is as rewarding as it is essential. Interacting with a brilliant crowd, full of energy, stimulating them to give back the day they leave school with the goal to enable others to graduate with the same level of joy and endless ambition. Adriaan Bloys, MBA13J

YAI Ambassador

I volunteered to be an Alumni Reunion Leader because I experienced 14 fantastic months of learning and new friendships at INSEAD. Throughout the program, our class was a real team, and we have remained a strong community and regularly meet locally and when we travel. Since graduation, our network has extended to the whole INSEAD Alumni community.
