Message from the Director

Vic Woo Ph.D.
Director of INSEAD San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation


INSEAD's hub in San Francisco opens a new world of opportunities for our community to collaborate and engage with a dynamic ecosystem of innovators.

The San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation convenes leaders from our global business school and a city renowned for its innovative tech start-ups to connect and use innovation to solve critical problems in business and society.

The activities happening at the INSEAD San Francisco Hub are expected to grow our community within the Bay Area and beyond, reaching across North America.


The Business School for the World

As one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas to develop responsible leaders who transform business and society. Our research, teaching and partnerships reflect this global perspective and cultural diversity.

INSEAD has been a global leader in business education and research for six decades. We launched the world’s first one year MBA in Fontainebleau, France in 1959. In the year 2000, we opened the Asia Campus in Singapore and became the first business school with campuses on two continents. Our Middle East Campus in Abu Dhabi opened in 2010 with innovation in focus. The San Francisco Hub in North America is our latest venture, a space to forge connections and build on 60 years of excellence.

Historically, INSEAD has opened locations at the right place at the right time in centers of growth and innovation. The opening of the San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation adds to INSEAD’s solid track record of firsts over its 60-year history.

Connecting to Your Potential

INSEAD connects you with life-long relationships and opportunities for transformation. The Hub is your opportunity to deepen your connection with the world around you and your sense of self as a leader, thinker and doer.

Connecting to the Bay Area

INSEAD is deeply invested in global citizenship and each location draws inspiration, expertise and connections from the local community to shape unique offerings and approach. Like the Bay Area, the Hub exudes the grit, innovation and dynamic energy that define the region itself.

Connecting to the Alumni Network

The Hub is an investment in strengthening the alumni network and the sense of belonging. As both a physical gathering space and digital platform, the Hub is a place for our community to meet, connect and collaborate.


Executive Education

Executives will be able to experience the immersive INSEAD learning methods, gain access to pathbreaking global research and professors, and gain exposure to the unique companies and culture of Silicon Valley.

In turn, the Hub is an investment that strengthens the global INSEAD network, which includes more than 65,500 alumni, 167 professors and business leaders in diverse sectors and markets around the world. It will also connect this immense diversity with the Bay Area community to shape its unique offerings and approach.
