Insights Into the Vast Universe of INSEAD’s Student Clubs - #ITK31
INSEAD Student clubs are run by students and supported by the school. They play a vital role in the student experience. Our clubs cover a broad range of topics from Professional, Social to Sports. A large proportion of the student population is honing their leadership skills by being the management team of clubs. There are 40+ clubs at INSEAD. Campus activities or on-line events are organised by MBA student clubs and help to sharpen your leadership skills and enable you to explore and pursue new interests or old passions by becoming a member. Professional clubs A wide range of student-run professional clubs works closely with the INSEAD Student Life department and the INSEAD Career Development Centre. They organise regular networking and speaker events on campus, as well as webinars, competitions or "career treks" further afield. Some of the larger clubs also organise prominent annual forums and conferences, like the Private Equity Conference, the Women in Business Conference and the Global Luxury Forum. Non-Professional clubs In addition to our gyms offering regular fitness classes on both campuses (and the squash court in France), we have many clubs offering a wide variety of sports and leisure activities to network and enable you to pick up valuable new skills.

Finding a Place to Assume Your Personal and Professional Identity and Belong - ITK#30
Belonging is knowing that you are a part of the world around you. It's about fitting in, finding your place, and feeling like you belong with the people around you. But some may have difficulties in identifying a sense of belonging to a certain place, or with certain groups of people, especially after international experiences or careers that may have shaped the way they think, behaves, or addresses any challenges, they are faced. So let’s discuss the importance, or lack thereof perhaps, of having to find your place and assuming an identity and belonging. After all, isn’t it the goal for us all to create more inclusive communities where one is accepted no matter where they are from, or where they believe they belong?
