Who we work with to make it all happen

Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) Fellowship

INSEAD joined the consortium of schools in the Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) Fellowship, and we offer a scholarship opportunity to encourage and help LGBT students advance their careers with a world-class MBA at INSEAD.

OUTSEAD became a qualified affiliate of the ROMBA and we now have the opportunity to join other partnership schools, with access to international LGBT leadership summits, and attend a Pre-MBA expo to network and attract incoming talent.
