“When I applied to INSEAD, I was working for a French financial institution, where I was told that going for an MBA was a waste of time. But I wanted a reset. INSEAD was the beginning of a chain of events that have brought me to where I am today and for which I am extremely grateful. My generation has, for the most part, been spared war, hunger and epidemics. Those who can, have a duty to give back for the benefit of future generations. I support the vision that INSEAD, through its geographically diversified network of alumni, can help promote better business practices and become a force for good.”

“INSEAD was my passport to a successful career. I am proud to give to ensure that future generations of students, especially more Arab women, benefit from the value of the INSEAD MBA and this transformative experience.”

“I chose to sponsor research because it benefits the INSEAD community in many ways: it helps the PhD students and professors, it gives MBA students evidence-based insights rather than guru wisdom, and it augments the visibility of the school among its peers.”

“INSEAD is the starting place for beautiful, life-long friendships and unforgettable experiences, and I have stayed connected to our community since graduation. Before our 25th reunion, I learned that my close friend and a loved member of our class, Lynn Busteed, had passed away tragically. Missing Lynn’s presence greatly, together with classmates, friends and her family, we decided to dedicate our Reunion Class Gift to establishing a memorial scholarship in her honour. This is the most meaningful project our ‘92J promotion has undertaken so far. It brought our class together in an amazing show of solidarity and generosity to ensure that Lynn’s memory is kept alive. We will continue to raise funds for the scholarship to offer more opportunities for exceptional students, particularly women, to experience INSEAD and to grow its impact over time.”
