INSEAD Middle East and North Africa


Welcome to the INSEAD Middle East and North Africa Club 


MENA region has emerged as an important and strategic geography in the business world to the extent that many global corporation have serious presence in one or several cities of the region. This importance is furthermore reflected by INSEAD’s third campus that was set up a few years ago in light of the vital role of the region (Abu Dhabi campus).

Beyond the major sectors such as oil & gas that created ancillary services and income for many MENA countries to transform them to global investors, the region has become the “link between East and West”.

Mission

We want to bring MENA career opportunities, culture and trends closer to INSEAD students – positioning MENA as an attractive and strategic region to work post-MBA

Cultural Forum
