INSEAD, Johns Hopkins Launch Dual-Degree Program

Last week, INSEAD and the Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) announced the launch of a dual MBA/MA degree program for those interested in careers in international relations and business.

Participants may begin their studies at either SAIS or INSEAD, and the combined program will save students one half-year of study. The program is designed so that students spend 18 months at SAIS and one year at INSEAD, rather than the three years required to complete the degrees separately.

During the program, students will have the opportunity to study with SAIS in Washington DC and Bologna, Italy, as well as in Fontainebleau, France and Singapore with INSEAD ”“ and also have the option to exchange to Kellogg or Wharton while at INSEAD.

Dipak C. Jain, dean of INSEAD, told the Financial Times “The INSEAD-SAIS Dual-Degree Programme will truly prepare students for top careers that combine international relations and business administration and will be especially valuable for those who seek management responsibilities in international corporations, financial institutions, economic and development institutions and government agencies.”

Applicants interested in the dual-degree program apply to each school separately and must meet the admissions requirements for each school.
