Swiss Scholarship




INSEAD MBA Scholarships for Swiss Candidates

During the summer 2016, the Founding Donor Group created the first INSEAD Alumni of Switzerland Endowed scholarship fund for Swiss candidates to provide financial assistance in the form of two annual Swiss scholarships of EUR 20,000 and one Tech Entrepreneur Scholarship of EUR 40,000.

The aim of the Swiss scholarships is to attract the best talent in Switzerland to the one-year INSEAD MBA programme. The Fund is sustainably endowed as recipients are encouraged to contribute to or participate in fundraising after graduating.
