@ FatRiverPuff

Hi there,

Quote:
1). Are INSEAD students issued business cards by the school for networking purposes? If not, do many students produce their own?

Students get the opportunity to order INSEAD business card once they're on campus. This is optional though.

Quote:
2). Does career services help enrolled students with pre-MBA internships?

No. Career Services will provide support for summer internships conducted during the Programme or for post-graduation internships.

Quote:
3). Are INSEAD interviews conducted exclusively in English or is the applicant's knowledge of other languages (mentioned in the application) tested by the interviewer, if appropriate?

Interviews are conducted by Alumni. The MBA department will hand pick interviewers based in your country of residence. So a lot of interviews are conducted in your 'home' language AND English. Nevertheless, your should expect the conversation to switch to any other language(s) you may have indicated in your application!

Quote:
4). Do you prefer international experience to be in a professional context? Does "personal" international experience have the same weight (i.e. growing up in various countries and attending international schools)?

Camille

How will adcoms look at this work experience? Does this even count as work experience even though it's in education and not in a bank, for example?

At INSEAD, we value diversity at every level. We welcome applications from people with a variety of professional and academic backgrounds, including the arts, law, non-profit, etc. No matter the field of your professional and academic background, we will be looking for you to demonstrate your potential as a leader, and we will consider your professional experience and past performance when assessing your application.
We have had some pretty unusual profiles on the Programme over the years such as an olympic medalist, professional musicians, criminal lawyers and a priest! So don't let anyone stop you because you could be one of our "poets"

Hi Camille

I am interested in a consulting career post my MBA. I wanted to know what are the "usual verticals" in "consulting companies" that Insead students get placed in immediately post their Insead MBA. From the website i could find out the names of the companies but not the specific verticals in which Insead students in particular get placed.

Thanks

Hi Phighter,

It took me a little time to reply to you as i'm not an expert in consulting. I had to seek advice from a Career Services advisor. Here is his say:

"If what you're asking is what industry verticals or sectors students would cover if they work in consulting firms after INSEAD. The answer is that most of the large firms like McKinsey, Bain, Booz & BCG would hire MBAs to be generalist and give them a variety of work across verticals or sectors. In a few cases there are smaller firms that specialize in areas such as tech/media/telecom or health care or energy, but they often prefer that their hires already have some experience in these areas. This would be true of any business school MBA graduate, not just INSEAD"

Thanks to my Colleague Chris in Career Services @ INSEAD!
Camille

Hello,

While giving my GMAT exam couple of days ago, I couldn't spot 'INSEAD' among the list of the schools. I looked under "Singapore" with alphabet 'I'. Or should I be looking somewhere else?

Thank you!

Hi. I think INSEAD is under France, not Singapore. I had the same problem, then I changed countries and I could see it.

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.

Hi Syog,
As an Indian applicant who studied in India, you are qualifying for the TOELF waiver. We are aware that, in India, all post-graduate studies are conducted in English. So no need to prove anything.

Cheers,
Camille

As I see the questions have not been answered for a long time. the team must be busy in admissions season. however I would like to post some questions. If you have some time please clarify.

I have two queries regarding the application
1. "If you are currently not working, what are you doing and what do you plan to do until you
start the MBA programme if applicable? (250 words maximum)"
In this question if you are currently working and plan to continue till just before you join INSEAD how do you bring that out. shouldn't this be an optional essay??

2. My recommenders do not have official email id. Lots of government departments use their own intranet rather than using internet official ids. So will INSEAD accept public domain email ID in my case??

Hi Arunpanda,
1. This question is indeed optional, so if not applicable to you, you may skip it.
2. I believe that as long as the email address is valid, your recommender will not have any problem. If your recommender was to face any issues, i would suggest that he use his personal email address.

Good luck with the application process,
best,
Camille

Hi,

I'm curious as to whether or not I should disclose I have ADHD on my option essay. I was recently diagnosed in the past year. My undergraduate GPA and GMAT are good, but not fantastic. My concern is mainly about some holes in my transcript and one of the GMAT sessions where I essentially bombed. I think having this as an undiagnosed condition, while it did not hinder me from having a successful career, does explain for some blemishes in my academic accomplishments.

Thank you.

Hi aspiringmbawoman,
I understand your concerned. There is an optional essay (#6) in the application form where you can express your concerns or provide additional explanation about yourself. If you feel like this is something you wish the admission committee to know, then essay #6 is were you can tell us about your condition.

Kind regards,
Cheers,
Camille

Hi Camille,
Could you please provide me some detail information on the big Real Estate companies (i.e. name of the companies, percentage of students recruited by them et al.) in France/Singapore/rest of the Europe, recruiting from INSEAD...?

What is the average package for these firms for fresh INSEAD grads in Singapore/Europe?
What is the reasonable and expected salary growth 3-5 years down the line with these firms?

Any feedback is highly appreciated.

Much thanks!
Best,
Deb.

hi Camille,

I'm an Indian, applying for Jan 14 intake. My doubt is regarding the TOEFL.
I have 7 years of Work Ex and and Engineering student and my degree is taught in English.
Do I still need a TOEFL/IELTS Score?

Cheers,
mdb

Hi mdb,
Good news! You don't need any English certification. As an Indian who completed his/her university studies in India, you automatically qualify for the waiver.

cheers!
Camille

Hi Camille,

I would like to clarify the deadline for applications. I am currently applying for round 3 and the deadline shown under My Applications in iApply writes "Deadline: August 7th 2013 at 12:00am" which would effectively be the start of August 7th. However, on the INSEAD website and on all other documents, it states that the deadline is 23:59 Central European Time on the day of the deadline (so 23:59 on August 7th for round 3). Could you please clarify this? Thank you.

Hi All,

We will propose on Sept 12th a special online session to tell you all about the campus exchange programme of INSEAD!
Get to speak like a true 'inseader'. Ditch the un-cool Fontainebleau or Singapore for Fonty & Singy.

PS: you'll get to see my photo and hear my voice. Because, Yes! i'm a real person!

No - you don't need to order another report.

Hello Camille or anyone else who can help,

I have a general GMAT query. Last year, I ordered a GMAT score report (paying \$28) to be sent to INSEAD. However, I did not end up applying due to some issues.

I will be applying to INSEAD this year and since last year, I have taken the GMAT again. But in the list of 5 schools that one can specify to send the score report for free, I did not list INSEAD as one of the schools thinking that they already have access to all my score reports.

Is this correct or would I have to order another score report for INSEAD detailing my new score?

Thanks

Hey Leizel,

Thankyou for the quick response. Say if I submit my application tomorrow, would I receive the interview notification in six weeks if I do get selected or its six weeks from the round 2 deadline? In summary, is is the process rolling based?

HI Team,

I have a small query. I have done my Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, where all courses were taught exclusively in English.
Do I still require to give a TOEFL/IELTS score?

Thanks,
Rohit

Hi Rohit ,
Although the question was intended for Leizel , but let me share what I know - Yes, no need.
I think, IIT states the same(re exclusively in English) in transcripts also...

Just my two cents!
