Both institutions will create a regular flow of students in both directions through student exchange protocols, establishing short term courses run in both institutions.  Specific points of collaboration include: The Arthur M. Blank Center for Entrepreneurship; the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) project; and the Family Enterprising Project (STEP).  Babson and Zhejiang will also develop a global Master of Science (MSc) program with EM Lyon (France).

Under the agreement, it will be offering a Business Management degree and an MBA in entrepreneurial studies through its newly launched faculty, the Bank Rakyat School of Entrepreneurship.

  • INSEAD’s international research centres: The Director of INSEAD has confirmed that the School is planning to open a research centre in India near Mumbai, India, which will be focused on entrepreneurship, which will focus on four aspects: start-ups , entrepreneurship within established corporations, buyouts and turnarounds, and family enterprise.  INSEAD will soon have research centres in India, Silicon Valley, Israel and China. Although each centre’s research mission will be driven largely by local needs, the satellite centres will share one major research project in common.
