The Wharton – INSEAD Alliance

The Alliance joins the resources of two world leaders in management education and creates global access to unparalleled business knowledge for students, faculty, and executives worldwide.

The Mission of the WHARTON-INSEAD ALLIANCE

The Alliance is a commitment from both schools to enable and encourage mutual collaborative activities for Faculty, MBA, PhD, Executive Education, Research and Development, and Alumni.

The Wharton INSEAD Center for Global Research & Education supports the development of innovative programs and teaching materials involving faculty members from the two schools. It enables unique initiatives that neither partner could have undertaken solely.

Our strategic alliance has been renewed through June 2022. Watch the video (below) to learn about our extraordinary partnership.

The Alliance Vision

Our shared vision is the belief that tomorrow’s market leaders in management research and education must have global reach and be part of a global business education and knowledge network. The enhanced use of information and communication technology as well as state-of-the-art learning technologies will be critical components of that global network.

♦ Develop

Deep collaborative relationships across the two institutions to stimulate faculty and student exchanges, promote world-class research and further enhance globalization of our curricula and learning.

♦ Create

The “best of the best” working in close collaboration, such that when business people anywhere are asked to name a top business program, Wharton-INSEAD are top-of-mind responses.

♦ Enhance

Each school’s abilities to work with top global corporations for management development and research sponsorship.

♦ Excel

Ability to attract outstanding faculty to the two schools and the best students to our programs.

Alliance Milestones

The alliance between the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and INSEAD is a strategic partnership created in March 2001 to establish academic ties between two prestigious business schools based on the shared belief that tomorrow’s market leaders in management education must have global reach and be part of a global business education and knowledge network with a leadership position in America, Europe and Asia. The demands of fast-paced, multinational companies for superior global education was the key driver behind the decision to form this Alliance.
