Hello,

I'm going to apply to INSEAD for 2013 admission. I work in my father's business so I was wondering if 1 of my 2 recommendation letters could be from my father.

Thanks!

Hi Waxer,

We prefer that at least one recommendation comes from the workplace for example, your current supervisor or manager is usually a good choice, but it cannot be a close family member! So, look for a recommendation from someone who has had a chance to evaluate you in a professional setting for example, a client, a former supervisor or a colleague from your community service or extracurricular activities.

Camille

Thanks for the reply! I have 2 people in the professional setting that would be able to evaluate me (2 different people that have overlooked my work), and I also have someone who knows me from a community service perspective (coached a hockey team with this person). Would it be better to get both references from the professional setting, or choose one from the community service setting.

Waxer,

I recommend that you chose your 2 professional references as 'official' references. You are also allowed to submit a 3rd recommendation letter if you wish. There are no format imposed, so it can take the form of an email, a word document or a PDF.

Cheers,
Camille

Hi, Insead team
I have several questions regading filling the application form. can you please help with them?

1) Academic Degree - FINAL GRADE* (p.5). In my Institute we had 5 points scale (5 - Excellent, 4- good etc.) plus we had pass/not passed Subjects. How can I calculate my final grade?
2) PREVIOUS FULL-TIME POSITIONS: STARTING GROSS ANNUAL SALARY (p.7). To which position this field relates to?
3) Please list part-time work, internships and summer jobs starting with your most recent position (p. 7) - Is it required for a person with 9 years of full-time jobs?

Thanks!

Dear INSEADadmissions,

I am planning to apply for Jan 2013 intake. I have already had an invitation from one of the BS. .

The deadline for round 2 is June 20. I am planning to submit my application on July 10, which is the 3 round. How fast my application will be reviewed? Will the Adcom wait till the deadline of the 3 round, August 16? How much time does the whole admission process take?

I am asking this question because I want to know about INSEAD Adcoms decision before I accept another offer.

Hi Rice,
The entire admission process can take up to 12 weeks. It is possible that you get an early decision but we cannot guaranty this. Don't hesitate to contact your admission officer to let her know of your time constrains. If they can help, they will.

Best,
Camille

Hi

Would INSEAD consider someone who already holds an MBA degree from a top 10 B-school in India? Pre MBA work-ex of 2 yrs and post MBA work-ex of 4 years?

Thanks !

I hope you return Camille because boy do I have questions for you!

1.) Tell me about this Abu Dhabi campus. Can I please spend some time at it?

2.) How rare is it for special language classes to form at the France campus? I am particularly interested in Mandarin and Arabic.

3.) Do I understand correctly that I don't have to take a foreign language test until I am ready to enroll in INSEAD?

4.) How awesome would it be to go to INSEAD? I bet it would be the greatest!

Hi Camille,

Thanks for your time in clarifying the queries from the team here. I have a very specific question around the range of experience in a typical class @ INSEAD. I have close to 14 yrs of work experience and would like to understand if this kind of experience is way above your cut-off range, if there is one !!! Appreciate your clarification on this.

Thanks,
Hanumath.

I am planning to apply for INSEAD 2013 intake. I am a computer science graduate (Bachelor of engineering) from an unversity in India where all the courses were taught in only English language. I am wondering how can I prove that in my application?

The language policy is no where mentioned explicitly in my marksheets or degree certificate.

I know its a bit of the blind leading the blind over here, but until Camille gets back I guess we only have each other. I would not think that you would need to prove that your University level classes were in English.

1.) I would not really doubt that they were, since it is India.

2.) I don't think INSEAD will care that much about the language they were held in since you will have to pass language tests anyway.

Of course, an answer from Camille would be a lot better.

Can you please comment on opportunities for spouses? Can they for instance attend classes, use campus facilities, attend official events, and so on. Many thanks!

Hi INSEAD Team,

I will be applying for 2013 Sept batch and hope to send my best application.

I would like to know if someone with strong undergrad and a tough post grad clubbed with unique experiences of investment banking and micro-finance/social impact funding but an average GMAT score of say 650 will be looked down upon?

Does coming from an over represented pool of Indians but no engineering and IT background help? I have a BA in Economics from one of India's oldest economics colleges and a masters from a top British university along with the work experience mentioned above. I have significant experience in front end M&A and private equity advisory and managerial experience as a principal manager of strategy and new initiatives with a big Indian micro-finance firm.

I think INSEAD is a good fit with its recent focus on social entrepreneurship (my long term future goal). Hoping to get your views on my profile and the hurdles i might face.'

Thank you for taking the time out to reply. Appreciate it.

Regards
sarveshmehta
