If you are interested in the world of MBA programs, the INSEAD is a name which needs no introduction.You should also be aware of the great diversity in terms of culture from where the MBA students came from. The international atmosphere at its Singapore campus follows on the footsteps of the Home campus of INSEAD.
In fact the MBA program offered by the school beats all, with students from no less than 80 countries participating in the program with the number of cohorts totaling close to 1000 per year, a fact that is to be lauded.
Students from Singapore, to cite an example constitute, less that 5% of the total students of last year, the number of which stood at 1,018
According to Professor Ilian Mihov, who happens to be the dean of the Singapore campus, this diversity in the background of students, lets them glide on smoothly in work environments with large cultural differences and as such they are ready to take their position as business leaders of a globalized world.

The highest recorded was an astonishing $467,000 which was more than 50% of the next highest base salary as recorded in the previous year.
