Director, Admissions, Marketing & Financial AidThis week we announced the launch of a dual-degree programme between the INSEAD MBA and the SAIS MA in International Relations. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is a top international relations graduate school, based in Washington D.C. The dual-degree will be an excellent preparation for students intending to pursue careers that combine international relations and business administration. Students admitted to both programmes will be able to complete the two degrees in two and a half years, instead of three years required to complete the degrees separately, by spending one and a half years at SAIS and one year at INSEAD. As Dipak C. Jain, Dean of INSEAD said: “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”. Over the course of the dual-degree, 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 whilst at INSEAD.
