Welcome 17Ds!


Dear 17D Class,

Welcome to INSEAD.

Here are a few pointers to get a head start:

Are you in the job search mode yet?

Stop by on the ground floor of the library to check out our job search corner. Last year’s most popular titles: Ace Your CaseCase in Point, Crack the Case.

Looking to improve your Français, Italiano, or Deutsch to ace the 3rd language requirement?

Check out our language books, here is a selected list. For more material on various languages, just use the Library catalogue.

What about textbooks?

Most recent editions of textbooks cannot be checked out of the library, however, you are welcome to pick one up from the shelves on the ground floor and read it “in house”. No need to carry these heavy items around everyday. We also have a small selection of e-textbooks (look for the ‘online access’ mention).

Where can I find articles on a topic? How do I start researching a company?

You can start on this databases page, use these research guides or video tutorials.  If you want to know how to get full text articles from the Harvard Business Review or the Financial Times, create a target list of companies, find SWOT analyses and more, contact the research librarians.

How do I contact you?

The Doriot Library is staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm. Contact the information desk during these hours or contact a specific person/department using the staff directory page.

We look forward to seeing you,

Special book display – FT and McKinsey Business Book of the Year 2016


Please come and visit our special book display on the FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2016

The Man Who Knew, a colourful and exhaustive biography of Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the US Federal Reserve, is this year’s Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year.

Sebastian Mallaby, is the 12th winner of the £30,000 award, which goes to the “most compelling and enjoyable” title of the year.

“The Man Who Knew is an impressive work of scholarship,” Lionel Barber, editor of the FT and chair of the book award judges, said. “It’s a masterpiece of political economy and, above all, it’s a great and enjoyable read.”

Mr Mallaby’s 800-page book was published in October by Bloomsbury and Penguin Press, and was hailed as “exceptional” in an FT review. It came up against strong competition from five other shortlisted books tackling the world’s critical economic and management challenges — from the US productivity gap to persistent gender imbalances.

Each of the other shortlisted titles wins £10,000. They are:

  • The Rise and Fall of American Growth by economist Robert Gordon.
  • What Works, Iris Bohnet’s guide to how organisations can help offset unconscious bias against women and manage diversity.
  • Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott’s The 100-Year Life, on the threats and opportunities of growing longevity.
  • Makers and Takers, Rana Foroohar’s critique of the dominance of high finance.
  • Alibaba, Duncan Clark’s inside account of the rise of the Chinese internet company and its founder Jack Ma.


On display on the ground floor of the Doriot Library from Thursday 24 November to Sunday 4 December.
