I have a question and would appreciate a quick answer. Can the 3 letters of recommendation be completed online by my recommenders? Or do they have to print the PDF and write on it?

Sorry the instructions are not to clear on the site. Would really appreciate a response, as my recommenders are incredibly busy people who dont have time to sit and write handwritten notes.

Thanks!!

Dear Ozzyk,

You can chose. When preparing the online application, under "additionnal documents", you have the possibility to either:
- fill in the contact details of your recommenders and we will then send them an email with the instructions.
Or either
- download the pdf, read the instructions on the pdf, and send it be mail/email to your recommender.

Thanks,

Best regards

Mark

Re: Ask IMD Admissions [#permalink] New post 06 Oct 2011, 07:22
Hi Mark,

I am considering applying for IMD MBA 2013 intake. The reason I've chosen IMD is because of its focus on industry and international diversity.

I am Chinese and have been living in Singapore for 8 years. By 2013, I will be working in semiconductor manufacturing industry for 6 years (plus 4 years PhD research from 2003-2007). The job focus now is product and yield engineering. I plan to go back to technology industry (GM or consulting) after MBA.

I have read through the 2011 IMD class profile and found that almost all of them already hold a "prestigious" title before MBA as "senior manager" or "director", or "founder". However, all I have now is technical background and experiences in production front line but not much direct exposure to "management". That is why I am applying for MBA now.

Thus, I would like to know how much would IMD consider a candidate's current title as advantage for admission? Does my profile look too "weak" in terms of current job title and responsibility from IMD adcom's point of view?

Thanks very much for your feedback.

Dear robertlau,

This is Simone here, Mark's colleague. Thanks for your question.
Prestigious titles at your workplace are not of a big importance for the IMD MBA admissions process, no. When we look at the work experience in your application the most important aspect is in fact the quality of your experience: we look at how your responsibility has increased, the breadth and depth of the knowledge you have acquired in the workplace, and the impact you have made on your organization.

I hope this helps.
Best,
Simone

Dear IMD Admissions members,

I posted my profile for assessment on 8 October, but haven't yet got a reply. Can you please estimate when I can expect an answer?

My second question concerns the admissions process. If I submit my application much earlier than the first round deadline, is there any chance that I my candidacy will be considered before the R1 deadline? Does IMD gather the "early birds" in Lausanne for an assessment days if there are enough candidates who applied early?
My question is due to the fact that IMD's deadlines do not correspond to the US schools deadlines and it gets difficult to manage the application process..

Thaks in advance!
Olga

Dear Kotela,

IMD is a different from a number of business schools because we focus on executive education (middle to top management). Our full-time MBA program has one of the highest average age (31 years old) and work experience (7 years) in the world. It is an intense, one year, general management program which focuses on leadership development and we only accept 90 participants a year in the program.

To apply, you need to have a minimum of three years work experience (average is 7), a Bachelor Degree (or equivalent), a GMAT score (no minimum, but our average is 670) and a strong command of written/spoken English. To get a good overview about the participants who study here, please download our 2011 Class Profile.

Thanks,

Mark

Dear Olga,

Regarding your profile assessment, could you send an email to mbainfo(at)imd.ch, we will then follow-up with you personally.

Unfortunately, we do not read any applications before the deadlines (February 1, April 1, June 1, August 1 and September 1). The first assessment days take place mid-March.
Our deadlines are different from most other schools because our program starts in January and finishes in December. Thanks.

Best regards

Mark

Dear IMD Ad Coms,
I am an Aspirant for the class of 2013. First of all let me thank you for your active presense on this forum. Much appreciated.

I submitted my "Assess your chances" and got a positive reply.. Thank you! :)

I wanted to know - Do you have any information sessions planned for North America Region (East coast/Mid West) in the US? The site does not give any information.

Also, if i wanted to schedule a school visit, Will the School provide some sort of document for me to secure a schengen visa?

My another issue is my recommendations.

Since I have just joined this new consulting firm, I would not want them to know of my long term plans just as yet. So for the same reason, i cannot ask my current manager for a recommendation letter. However my previous managers are more than willing to provide the same.
My question: Does it hurt me if I do not have a recommendation from my current manager?

I have close to 10 Years of work experience and planning to take the GMAT in March. I shall be shooting for the June 1 deadline next year.

Thanks!

Dear iamgame

Thanks for your interest.

We regularly go to the East Coast in spring and in fall for the QS World MBA Fairs. We do not have the 2012 dates available at the time but we will post them as soon as they are confirmed. Keep an eye on our http://www.imd.org/MBA-Visits page.

You do not need a document from IMD to obtain a Shengen visa. You can find details here on how to get one: Schengen Visa information

About your recommendations, we are aware and understand that it is not always possible to get one from a current manager. Just simply explain why. As you are a consultant, ask one of your clients to write one for your or ask one of your colleagues you've worked with on a project.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

Best regards,

Mark

Dear Mark,
Although I am unable to visit the campus in person, I have signed up for a virtual event to be held in January. I have been checking the website mentioned by you regularly for any planned events in the east coast however, none are planned as of now.
I am highly interested in interacting with the IMD community to gain further insight into the life at IMD which will help me connect even more with the vibrant culture.

I wanted to know, how does the virtual tour work? Will we be interacting with someone from IMD during the tour or will it be a "movie" sort of thing that will be shown giving a campus tour?

Thanks!

Dear iamgame,

We will be attending the MBA Tour in Washington DC on Feb. 2 and in New York on Feb. 4. We would be happy to meet you!

The Virtual Visit is a live session where Suzy will be giving a presentation about IMD, the MBA program, the admissions process and how to finance your MBA. There is also a chat available where you can type in your questions.

If you are interested in talking with IMD MBA Alumni who are located in the East Cost, please fill in our contact alumni form.

Thanks,

Mark
