Welcome to Global INSEAD Day 2021: The Big Connect!


Every year on Global INSEAD Day, alumni, faculty, staff and students gather to celebrate the #1 business school in the world. This special occasion marks the anniversary of INSEAD’s first MBA Opening Ceremony in the historic Château de Fontainebleau in 1959.

This Global INSEAD Day, happening on 10 September, INSEAD in collaboration with INSEAD Alumni Association (IAA), is hosting three digital events from three key locations — Asia, Europe and the Americas. Each event will begin with a faculty session where you’ll gain insights on the latest global business trends from the experts.

Then it’s time to mingle! Every webinar will be followed by a fun networking virtual event where you can meet up with fellow alumni to discuss, debate and discover more about the challenges and opportunities of this unique moment in history.

Every webinar and networking session is open for our global audience. Just head over to our Global INSEAD Day website and register to Big Connect with fellow INSEADers!

Jointly organised with the INSEAD Alumni Association (IAA), this Global INSEAD Day promises to be our biggest networking event of the year!

Join us on 10 September at 6.00pm CET for a lively discussion on “Conducting Business Across Cultures: How to Lead, Negotiate and Get Things Done Around the World” with INSEAD Professor of Management Practice Erin Meyer. In a globalised world, working well across cultures is a must. In this webinar, moderated by Associate Dean of Advancement Nida Januskis, Erin will share her advice on what works, and what doesn’t.

The webinar will be followed by a special networking opportunity exclusively for alumni hosted on a new state-of-the-art platform, Remo, where you can gather around “themed tables” for meaningful discussions and connections.
