INSEAD is committed to developing business education across this dynamic region, offering insights into advanced managerial ideas and worldwide business practices in one of the fastest growing and exciting geographies of the world. It is with this goal that we have launched seven open-enrolment programmes at our campus in Abu Dhabi.INSEAD's campus in Abu Dhabi was also established to better understand and contribute to the development of the region through in-depth research of important business topics of both regional and global interest. Led by INSEAD's world class faculty, applied research initiatives are being undertaken in several areas including: women and leadership, healthcare and human resources management and humanitarian logistics.The Abu Dhabi Campus was inaugurated on 28 June 2010 under the patronage of His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and The Deputy Supreme Commander of the U.A.E Armed Forces.
