INSEAD MBA Scholarships for Swiss Candidates

The Swiss Scholarships

During the summer 2016, the INSEAD Alumni of Switzerland created an endowed scholarship fund of over €725,400 K which, at an annual distribution rate of 4%, will ensure a €20K scholarship.  The first recipient will graduate in the December 2018 MBA promotion.


To grow the Swiss INSEAD MBA alumni community by generating more candidates from Switzerland and giving them financial assistance in the form of scholarships from the INSEAD Alumni of Switzerland Endowed scholarship.


  • Our very first scholarship for Swiss candidates has now been created
  • Sustainable award: The CH candidates are encouraged to reimburse the award 10 years following their graduation or fundraise for the matching amount.
  • The vetting process for the scholarships will be done by INSEAD
  • Current tuition fees for the class graduating in December 2018 are €82,000.
  • Today, 31% of INSEAD MBA candidates receive scholarships.
  • In Europe, there are scholarships for Belgium, Greece, Finland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and UK; the funds were raised through the INSEAD alumni community.
