I'm kinda indecisive on whether I should apply to IESE or not. I know it's one of the best European schools, but I'm not sure what would be my chances of getting a job in Europe after my MBA there, especially considering that I don't speak Spanish.

Anyhow, if I do end up applying, I think I'm in for round 2.

Thanks for starting this thread! I intend to apply to IESE during Round 1 (Oct 25 deadline).

@psycat: The recent career report shows that 31% of students found jobs in Spanish speaking countries (Spain + LatAm). They have a fair percentage of recruiters from every region (Asia, North America, West Europe, etc) so not speaking Spanish won't limit your chances of finding a job post MBA.

I intend on applying to IESE, but will probably do it round 3 or 4. I really like the program, but my only concern is getting a job in North America after graduation - looks like only 4% of all graduates end up back in the US.

Thanks for this thread!

I'm in for R1 8-)

I wonder how works the exchange program...
The list of partnering schools is impressive:

http://www.iese.edu/en/MBAPrograms/prog ... rogram.asp

Does anyone know how selective exchanges are? Lot of candidates for few seats?

Just submitted my application for R1 today. I read somewhere that roughly a third of students go on exchange.

Did you get an application complete email from IESE? I'm wondering how long it takes IESE to acknowledge the receipt of the application once it is submitted.

good luck !

submitted my application for R1 as well.

regarding the exchange program: there are about 90 slots (one third of class size), but they told me that a lot of students don't want to go on exchange so normally everyone who wants to can go. however, not everyone can go to the school of his choice...

Just submitted for "Round 1" yesterday. Please count me on the roll call.

Regarding exchange program: I talked with an admissions representative about this, she said these programs are fairly competitive, especially for the top US schools.

I have applied IESE in R1 and waiting eagerly for its interview invite. I had a cousin brother who completed his MBA from there this year and hence went his recommendation about reputation of school!

I don't think I can. I already have plans/flights for the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. I really don't want to do the videoconference either though. Anyone have any idea if they would interview in at their NYC office?
