This month is a milestone one in the Westbourne Sixth Form calendar, as IB1 students are introduced to Summer@ INSEAD. Westbourne is proud to have strong links to world-leading business school INSEAD, ranked #1 MBA school globally, through our Chairman Mr Mark Peters.
We are the only UK school to provide students with exclusive access and application support to Summer@ INSEAD, an intensive MBA style two-week Summer School that takes place at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, on the outskirts of Paris.
Mr José Cano, Associate Director of Global Development at Westbourne and INSEAD graduate, launched our 2023 INSEAD application process this week, inviting IB1 students to apply for the once-in-a-lifetime Summer@INSEAD programme. Mr Cano took time to meet with students to present the opportunity and discuss the application process. We were joined by our students who completed INSEAD last year, both from Westbourne UK and Westbourne College Sydney, who shared their experiences of how Summer@ INSEAD provided them with a platform to grow and finesse their entrepreneurial and innovation skills.
The prestigious Summer@ INSEAD programme presents a unique opportunity for our IB1 students to widen and enhance their academic pursuits, as well as to meet other students from across the world who share similar aspirations and abilities. The values and culture of the Summer@ INSEAD programme complement Westbourne’s ambition to develop well-rounded, articulate, globally aware young people who are confident to tackle the ever-evolving demands of the working world.
Featuring a world-class academic curriculum, company visits, talks with business leaders and entrepreneurs, as well as numerous cultural, team building and social activities, Summer@ INSEAD provides students with a unique and transformative experience. More than just an incremental gain in factual business knowledge, the programme is designed to give participants the opportunity to develop their creativity and critical thinking skills while enhancing their confidence and ability to work across cultures.
