interesting. I got no information yet... that's especially interesting in light of the fact that I had the interview before you. maybe there's an order, admit/wait/ding, ... that, I would say, is a very bad sign... :/

Hi all,

As a public service, I'd like to let you all know that CEIBS has waitlisted me for consideration in the 2nd round. A decision on my application will be made no later than April 2, 2011. Did anyone else get placed in the same boat? In a way, this decision doesn't surprise me too much. It's not what I wanted but my background is very alternative. I'm absolutely certain that I would have been admitted if I'd been working at the moment, which I'm not...and haven't done for quite some time due to difficult global conditions.

But if I did have a job at the moment, I certainly wouldn't find it prudent to leave paid employment to matriculate in business school when the world is on the brink of the Greatest Depression. I'd miss out on the opportunity cost of lost salary, experience, and potential promotion. Furthermore, unless one plans to head back to one's company after completing the MBA, one would likely experience significant difficulty finding a decent job post-graduation in such a tough market as we've got looming. This will be the case in nearly all sectors. And if one were to find a job after graduation, then one would be among the first to be laid off in such a market as new hires are often the first to go

Yes, China's growth will certainly add value to the CEIBS degree and provide post-graduation opportunities. Having additional education may also help provide some job security in the tough times that are coming. I know some may be thinking that I'm being a bit cynical and paradoxical in my views toward seeking an MBA in light my negative expectations of global economic fortunes. However, what's really cynical about trying to obtain an MBA is that it's a lot like marriage...no money, no honey!

What results did the rest of you receive? I know CEIBS accepted quite a few South Asians who work at big name companies in India although these peeps don't speak a lick of Chinese and have never been to East Asia. Feel free to flare back at me...

Ciao!

Just to keep the thread going I have also been admitted to UST FT '11 intake. I was interviewed 2-3 weeks ago and received notice this week. For those from R1 who are worried about a ding at this point there's still a shot!

Best of luck to everyone and looking forward to getting to know fellow admits.

WorkEx : 8 Years.
Country of Origin: India.
Founding Member of a Software Company in Enterprise Communications. International Exposure : 24 Months ( Mostly in APAC : Singapore, Hongkong, Philippines, Thai, Indonesia and Malaysia). Roles: Operations, Product Management & Business Development.

I got admitted in HKUST (last Monday) and CEIBS (previous Thursday). I'm struggling with the decision, but this forum has brought me interesting insights. I will keep you posted on my research as well!
Interviews were quite similar, both via Skype. HKUST interview seemed a job interview while CEIBS interview was more informal and more open to questions.

Is there any preference given to applicants with work-ex in a family managed manufacturing & Exports business? Or are they not considered at all?
Curious because I'm hearing mixed views from people since I've harbored the thought of getting an MBA.

Any idea about how many people have already been admitted?
How many vacancies?

Seems like a fair amount of people have already been accepted in from the R1 applications. Congrats to all who made it!

I'm in the R2 boat, and received my invite for the interview last week. Here's hoping I don't screw it up, but any advice other than what was provided in the previous pages would be helpful!!!

I also got admit from HKUST last week. They have given their decision very early as compared to the date of 12th Feb given on their website. Any one else in the same boat. Can we connect to each other?

Jan 12th - acceptance deadline + must plunk down a deposit of HK$50,000 (~US$6,400)! So it would potentially leave me in a situation where an acceptance to INSEAD would mean walking away from a substantial chunk of money. :shock:


I'm not yet in that situation, but I can imagine that ... sucks! :(

I can read from your line you'd prefer INSEAD?


Actually, I don't, and if I were accepted into INSEAD, I would be quite torn. I prefer HKUST's location (rather than INSEAD's S'pore campus, which I've heard is a corporate office bldg with no real 'campus' feel and is not 1/1000th of Fonty) and the small class size.

However INSEAD has that shiny rep and a massive alumni base, which could prove very useful in the future. It would be a very tough decision!

What about you?


What did you finally decide? Are you paying the fee to HKUST? Iam in the same boat

Make sure you are ready to answer all types of questions regarding your career goals with details such as company you would work for, position, why would you be the best to fit that position and etc. Good luck!
