Nearly 69 universities and consortia worldwide have received endowments of US $1 million (INSEAD included). In its second phase the Sylff programme is now building a worldwide community of young leaders.
As a philanthropist and the founding chairman of the Nippon Foundation, Ryoichi Sasakawa articulated a philosophy that remains the driving force of the programme today.

Sylff would like to encourage candidates of any nationality to broaden their knowledge and enhance their career opportunities through the INSEAD MBA programme. One award will be granted per class.
