School Strategy

Before starting the INSEAD application, let’s compare the INSEAD application to other schools. 

With 4 job essays and 3 motivational essays, INSEAD’s application requires more writing than most other business school applications. As we’ll discuss later, applicants must also provide proof of their second language. Plus, INSEAD requires a Kira Talent interview, which you must complete within 48 hours of application submission.

So all-in-all, it’s a big application. Not to scare you, but just to say “take it seriously”.
