We are building a stronger foundation for INSEAD executives who wish to formalise their desire to take on greater responsibilities on boards in the UK and internationally.

The IN-BOARD Academy is a collaborative programme between INSEAD and the UK NAA, which aims to prepare leaders for current and future board roles through learning and sharing of knowledge and experience. IN-BOARD is a forum of experienced peers with expert partners and speakers.

Applications for our 2022/23 UK IN-BOARD Programme are now open! – click here to download the application form and return it to [email protected] 

Space is limited and open to Senior Alumni with a minimum of 10 years experience or more.

Benefits of the IN-BOARD Programme:

  • Understand the fundamentals of board dynamics as well as the role and duties of the director
  • Learn good practices from industry leaders sharing their experiences in an open and informal way
  • Learn through case studies and from peers in a workshop environment
  • Understand strengths, weaknesses, biases and postures of a director sitting at a board meeting
  • Build and expand personal networks, become part of an active international IN-BOARD alumni community

The programme is delivered both on campus and in-country with Knowledge Partners. Start the 2022 programme with the in-country modules and complete the certificate at an immersive weekend at INSEAD (Fontainebleau) in November.
