@aakashgm

"Others" is a real catch all for industries such as dance (we have a ballet dancer this year), academic research (we had an MBA who just completed a PhD) etc etc. I don't recall anyone who came from an education background in the last 2 years but that does not mean that you don't stand a chance.

Depending on the industry that you want to move into, there might, or might not, be challenges. It will depend on your background, how strong you are and how much work you are willing to put in if the career transition is going to be a difficult one.

All the best.

I have 2 queries-

1. As a follow-up to @godspeed's query on TOEFL/IELTS, I want to know what is the mode through which an applicant can apply for waiver for the english language requirement. Do we have to upload any letter, if yes, in which part of the application. I have a certificate from my college stating English as the medium of instruction, where do I document that ?



We have the option of providing a writeup on why we are requesting for a waiver on language testing requirements on the educational qualifications page of the application. Although you can't upload any documents you can at least exlplain why you think you should get a waiver.

Also as I understand, even if Cambridge waives the testing requirement we might still need to take a test (to meet the UK Border Agency requirements) if offered a place at the JBS MBA program.

R3 deadline is rapidly approaching. I submitted my application a few days ago. Good luck to everybody working on theirs.

Hi Conrad,

I am applying in the third round of application and have couple of doubts.

1) CGPA- I am a graduate from Delhi University( India) which doesn't a have a CGPA system. I secured between 60-70% in my graduation. Is it equivalent to Second class honours, upper division (2:1) ? If yes, how should I disclose this in my application?
2) A peer referee- Should the peer referee be someone with similar designation as that of mine? Also, can that person be someone from my previous organization? I already have my current supervisor writing one reco.

Would appreciate your help!


If it is of any help then here is what I have done. I am also a DU graduate. I mentioned my marks with the division in brackets and then my rank. On the peer referee - I requested a peer in my former organisation for the reference. I think as long as you worked closely and over a sufficient period of time for you peer to know you well (and can trust that person to provide a realistic description of yourself), it should not matter if that peer is in your current or previous organisation.

Conrad can of course answer your queries in a much more authoritative fashion.

@redevil

Haivng a phone interview will not affect your chances of admission. It just means that you won't have an opportunity to know more about the school and your fellow interview candidates.

Look forward to meeting you on campus or speaking to you soon.

Kind regards

You can read about the employment prospects of the Cambridge class who graduated a year ago at
http://www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/mba/careers/report.html

I should say that career outcomes are very much related to an individual's prior work experience, academics, and also the state of the market. I would say that consulting hiring has increased in Cambridge in the last year.

Hmm, don`t you think average of 7 years of WE is a bit too much and may discourage younger applicants with , say, 3 years of WE from applying ?

It really depends on the quality of your work experience. It is true that most consulting firms take younger candidates. Although the average work experience of our class is 7 years, we do take in students with only three years of work experience if they can demonstrate a level of maturity equal to someone more senior.

It is also true that it becomes more difficult to shift careers the older one gets. However, there are students who make a career transition after many successful years in their industry. These students have to demonstrate a compelling case for their proposed career shift, and also show a high level of adaptability. Most importantly, they have to work hard to network, prepare for case interviews, work on their CVs and cover letters etc.

Hi Conrad,

Where may I find more information about Cambridge's program, with respect to innovation and entrepreneurship?

Thank you

Thanks Conrad to join this thread. I have been following your blog. Infact, I have posted some of your comments about the UK visa in my blog.

Like Enkie, I also have too much of experience...:-) But I feel comfortable to know that I will be associated with more experienced people in the class.

Conrad - I understand that the Cambridge team is visiting New York on July 23rd. Can you please let me know if there is any plan to visit the west coast? Also, if selected for the interview, I would rather prefer a face-to-face interview. Please let me know if there will be a presence of an interview panel on Nov 14th in the US.

There is some information about entrepeneurship on our website but I will admit it is not exactly expressed that clearly. We are working on a set of videos involving MBAs who are interested in entrepreneurship and these will be posted in the next few months (I interviewed the first group last week). Is there a specific question that you have in mind?

We will be visiting the West Coast but later in the year, probably late September early October.

The interview schedules are on our website and yes, if you apply by the first deadline, and are shortlisted, you have the option of an on-campus interview on the 14th of October.

Hey Conrad. In general, do you discourage people who already have a Cambridge degree from applying? I did Part III Maths some years ago.

We do not discourage, or encourage candidates who already have a degree from Cambridge from applying.

Guys...how are things...How is your apping going?

I finished two essays. I must say that I love Cambridge essays, especially "key issues facing organisations". It's very unique and shows the academic maturity.

Now, I am getting into the details. I have one question if anyone is listening here :-)

How the below essay should be used? There are some aspects that I want to highlight but I am not getting an opportunity to highlight it. For example, I have involved in the merger and acquisitions. Should i mention about it here? The general thump rule is that do not answer unless you have to. But I have always been the nut case :-) So what you think..

Please provide information on any aspect of your candidacy that requires further explanation, or information that you would like the Admissions Committee to know (300 word limit).
