Dear Conrad,

Thanks for answering my previous questions as it has been very helpful in my MBA search.

The Cambridge MBA curriculum lists "Summer Activities" from July-August the year of graduation along with a variety of options a student can choose from. I was wondering if a student is allowed to complete an internship of his or her choosing during this period?

Or hypothetically if I were accepted to a summer associate internship that lasted from June-August the year of graduation, would I be allowed to participate in it if I attended Cambridge?

Thanks again,

@Shanghaizzle

Yes, you can take up an internship during the summer months that would count towards your Summer Activity. I know of some students who left the day after their last class to start their summer internships.

Kind regards

Hi Conrad,

I have applied to Mfin course a week back and had few questions.
1) What is the class size you are looking at for your mfin batch starting in 2012?
2) What is the number of applications that you receive for your mfin course?
3) I have read somewhere that JBS conducts interview in India too. Is my information right?

I can't answer the MFin questions per se but we have about 45 students this year. The MBA program will be conducting interviews in India at the end of the year but as far as I know, there are no plans for the MFin program to do so.

Good luck with your application.

Hello Conrad,

As per latest announcement in UK Border Agency website, it states the following-

"The post study work route, which has allowed graduates free labour market access, will be closed and students wishing to stay and work will need to apply under the skilled workers visa route . There will also be new time limits on student visas and tougher rules on work placements."

This announcement came on 2 Nov and hence looks like they are going to further strict the immigration clauses.

How does applying under the skilled workers visa route different than applying from a post study work route ?

As a college representative, do you have any info on what more changes are they planning to do in terms of "new time limits" on student visas. It's already only 16 months for a 12 month program. Are they thinking of abolishing even these 4 months and any insight into the supposedly tougher work placements?

I tried looking into your blog under the tag "Visa" but couldn't find any new info. If you can throw some light on the recent developments, i'll highly appreciate that.

Hi Conrad

I am planning to apply to Cambridge in Round 2. One of my recommender will be able to submit the reco before the deadline. But my other recommender got some last minute work because of which he might not be able to submit my reco before the Round 2 deadline.

My question is, in case my recommender is a little late in submitting my reco (may be 2-3 days late), can I still be considered for Round 2 or will be then be considered for Round 3.

Please let me know what's the school's policy on this.

Thanks

Hello,

I am 31/Indian/Male (I know most competitive pool but I am bit different - I am not from IT/telecom ), have graduated from one of top 10 colleges in India, I am working with a leading MNC in India, have 9+ years of experience in Sales and Marketing - Consumer durables, I have been promoted to youngest Regional Manager at the age of 29 in my current company. I am enthusiastic, goal-oriented and optimistic individual and I want to pursue MBA to enter global consumer market. Though I have dozens of applauds, promotions and community service initiatives under my belt, my current GMAT score of 640 raises doubts in my mind of applying to Cambridge. I wish to know with my current score, shall I apply to one year full time MBA at Notre da Cambridge? I want to make sure that my application will be read and not discarded just because of low score.

As a matter of policy, we do not give individual assessment of candidates unless they have submitted a complete application. This is because there is more to a candidate than just a GMAT score, undergrad GPA or what you can see in a CV. You can read more about how we read an application on my blog
http://www.thecambridgembaadmissions.co ... rare-find/

Your GMAT of 640 is on the low end but as I said in my blog, that should not discourage you from applying if you feel that the other aspects of your application are strong.

All the best.

Hi,

I have a question about the following essays of Judge:

What are the key issues facing organisations in your sector over the next three years? What course of action would you recommend to such organisations? (300 words)


I have to write about the key issues facing organisations in my sector in my country or in general?

Thank you very much.

Dear Sir,

I am a prospective Indian female student with a GMAT score of 640. I have 8 yrs. experience in a leading PSU bank in India as a Dy. Mgr. and a short span as a cabin crew in Air India. My academics and extra-curricular is not very appealing. I have good recommendations from my seniors, though not immediate ones. Do i stand any chance of getting selected for your institute?

@kanchan80

We do not assess any candidate until they submit a formal application. This is because of the large number of applications that we receive. Was there a specific area that you were concerned about?

Hi ,
Do 30+ applicants have better chance of getting past the admission process ? Right now , as I want to work in US , will Cambridge MBA be of much help ? I would be working on H1b in Boston , and parallely intend to do a part-time masters from Tufts/BU-MET/Northeastern Univ or some other university. Will , a graduate degree from these schools give me an advantage in terms of gaining admission to Judge MBA ?

@thisiszico2006

Age doesn't come into the admissions equation --- it is what you have accomplished that we are looking for.

In terms of whether a Cambridge MBA, or any MBA for that matter, can help you work in the US, you should really be thinking about how far can your present experience go to help you make a transition into your desired career. If your current work experience is reasonably compelling to a would-be employer (and you can always check this by asking employers in your desired sector/geography for a CV assessment) and it is just the lack of knowledge that is holding you back, then an MBA would be the right choice. An MBA is not a magic passport that will get you a dream job.

Kind regards

Hi,

Had couple of queries regarding references:

does the Peer reference has to be someone who can talk about my current work or can be one with whom I was associated during early phase of my professional career as well?

Is a recent Peer and Supervisor reference more preferred?

Regards
KP
