  "Better Leaders for a Better World"  

 
 

Role and activity. Our international institute, based in France, is primarily active in the organisation and supervision of leadership education and development curricula and the related course delivery, for persons active in many professional domains, and residing in numerous countries around the globe. INSIL offers post-graduate diploma courses and degree-programmes (MA and PhD) in leadership studies, of which the curricula were sourced at the INSIL-affiliate where they were originally designed, the Thierry Graduate School of Leadership of Belgium. Course delivery modes include e-coached distance education or blended learning, in which English, or English and French, are the languages of instruction. Some of the programmatic requirements can take place in cooperation with other educational organisations experts worldwide.

 

Institutions. Our mission statement and slogan, Better Leaders for a Better World, stems from the THIERRY Graduate School of Leadership. By its humanity's hopes of leadership cornerstone concept, THIERRY is truly unique in the world. Established in the south of Belgium, and having become a European knowledge centre in the area of practice-oriented and multidisciplinary leadership, THIERRY nonetheless retains its small-is-beautiful type of appeal. The INSIL-THIERRY intra-institutional synergy further strengthens the aims, value, and effectiveness of the leadership programmes. The person-centredness in leadership education, leader training, and personal development remains at the heart of the THIERRY-approach. INSIL-THIERRY also hosts the environmental leadership masters programme and climate change multidisciplinary leadership sustainability courses of the symbolic i2LN Icare Institute for Leadership and Nature. The enrolment capacity at INSIL and THIERRY combined is limited to 50 students per year. The stringent admission requirements, and faculty profile standards' level, make that the actual number of students per year is lower than the cap-number.

 

Statutory information. INSIL does not pursue 'business' type of aims. The institute is managed by a registered private not-for-profit organisation, and is licensed by the French State Ministry of National and Higher Education and Research as a private institution of higher education including distance learning of the registered master's and doctoral curricula and online courses that lead towards the earning of the institute's own certificate/diploma, and to a recognised academic degree. The thesis (dissertation) phases in the masters and doctorate programmes are governed by the accreditation provisions set forth in the officially validated inter-collegiate charter that comprises amongst others an external review council (ERC) requirement. 

 

Location. The institute's central office and its management body's legal seat are in north-eastern France, in the city of  Charleville-Mezieres. Through its supervisory and cross-borders relation with THIERRY, the institute extends its local reach at the THIERRY House eco-campus site in the Belgium Ardennes. The THIERRY-sourced international courses can be offered by INSIL at other locations worldwide, through the CLEAR-CREAL knowledge-sharing platform.
