INSEAD Board Training (IN-BOARD) 2023/24 (10th edition)

Dear Alumni,
The next INSEAD Board Training (IN-BOARD) is scheduled to begin in November 2023.
Based on the principle of life-long learning, the INSEAD Board (IN-BOARD) initiative is an executive education programme organised by the International Alumni Associations. It is targeted at those who are or will be serving on boards of SMEs, startups and listed corporations.

INSEAD Board Training (IN-BOARD) 2023/24 (10th edition)

The IN-BOARD kick-off weekend on campus in Fontainebleau is led by INSEAD Professors Erik van de Loo and Jaap Winter.
The session introduces IN-BOARD participants from the Belgian, Dutch, German, Norwegian and Swiss National Alumni Associations (NAAs) to board dynamics and effectiveness. A full day of leadership development coaching is also included.

Subsequently, local modules developed for the Swiss NAA by legal, top-level professional service firms and well-known business angels offer Legal, Strategy, HR/People, Accounting/Auditing and Startup board topics. The series of Zurich-based workshops are tailored to the Swiss corporate environment.
