That's exactly the kind of figure I've been looking for about IMD, because I want to see to what extent IMD's geographic relocation statistic is made of non-Swiss people working in Switzerland after IMD. I'd be interested in anybody's views about this.

BTW, libraal, you may want to post this analysis of yours on the LBS thread if you haven't already done so ;) it is most interesting.


I think the number of people who stay in Switzerland post IMD is quite high. It may be as high as 30%. A couple of factors, you would earn in Swiss Francs, thus, making it easier to repay the loans + the Swiss economy so far is faring better than others.

Noinpac, would you mind sharing your profile and post-MBA goals?

I'll copy-paste my post into LBS thread.

Cheers!

Thanks librarl. This is really reassuring. When I keep thinking about it, Oxford appeared to be better and better ( considering my decision to either go back to India or US where Oxford brand is very much stronger than IMD, and moreover 30K USD fee less). But after visiting IMD, I liked the place very much and the placement statistics and ranking of of IMD really attracked me. So really feeling ambivalent on the decision. So the waiting continues till Apr 23 and after that I will go with Oxford. I will be writing back to IMD on this too.


Kiran,

you may be interested in my post here:
ranks-and-clusterings-of-various-international-b-schools-78320-80.html#p1067839

I don't want to beat down other schools, but I think Cambridge and Oxford have similar profiles and similar problems.

With regards to the cost aspect, advice I got, if you count in your foregone salary, another couple of grand doesn't break the bank. Plus, IMD is one of the schools that still has the loan facility.

Thanks! I've not even been to Australia but something attracts me in it, I should go and visit before I relocate, but I'm also in the process of getting my professional qualification assessed and recognized. Spent hours creating an English syllabus for my Eastern European diploma, will be sending it together with my British accountancy qualification to the Australian Professional Body some time this month. In fact I should stop clogging the forums and roll up my sleeves to do it :)

I think whatever you do, it may be easier if you do part of the work yourself, unless you start working for a major multi-national with a presence in Australia and they help you with relocation.

Telco and IT is big in Australia I heard.

For those of you for whom the attraction of IMD is the personal development focus, please be advised that after wondering whether it is just a marketing spin or if it is indeed unique to IMD here's what I've found out.

IMD alum:
- a lot of self-reflection through 8 psychoanalytical assignments each of which is reviewed and commented by a shrink / pshycho analyst
- regular feedback around 12 through the year
- 20 hours of the psychoanalytical Jungian coach (optional)
- each study group is followed by a coach

LBS alum:
- feedback from the group mates on class participation and contribution (very similar to 360 degree feedback used in many companies)

So, I would say all in all IMD does have the edge over LBS in this particular field which is also substantiated by the fact that whereby in other schools the feedbacks and all may be optional in IMD this forms a mandatory part of the program.

Slightly off-topic, however, worth mentioning for those people considering lesser ranked and cheaper alternatives.

The only other school that I know of that practices the same approach is Cranfield (http://www.som.cranfield.ac.uk/som/) in the UK. It has perhaps a less glamorous, accomplished and internationally diverse student body, its location in British country side is nothing compared to small but quite international Lausanne, it is easier to get in there, but on the other hand it's also costs a lot cheaper.

Also, similar to IMD its focus is on the real life application where it's a leader in the UK for executive education and many of its faculty have prior business rather than purely academic experience.

lookingatx, R3 should be still ok but do not go for R4 if you are Indian because getting a visa would then be an issue. It s a long process to get it !

Then to come back to the International Consulting Projects, we have just started to our new group and we are all meeting our 15 clients during the month of April. Then we will work on it the whole month of may with our client. These projects are really exciting. For my project, i will work for a leading dermatology company that employs 4000 people around the world and report directly to the VP of Marketing and the CEO !
I really think these ICP are really a different offering that IMD brings to us. Of course, this is industry-focused. But this is what IMD is about !

Re: IMD 2013 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 16 Apr 2012, 06:52
Seems like we have many recjections from accepted candidates huh? Wonder if any one know the reasons? Seems like out of this first round, IMD must have gotten close to 50% rejection, way above its usual acceptance rate of 75%+...

I only applied to IMD, researched a lot before and was the only school I wanted. So accepting was an easy decision.

For those rejecting, maybe higher cost of IMD as compared to other 1 year programs? Focus on industry? Very interested to hear the reasons...

Cheers,
Henrique

it was mainly for personal reasons and post-MBA goals.

1 chose Insead over IMD, 2 LBS and another 1 Booth.

I was also surprised because attending the assessment day is already a big commitment.

I think the acceptance rate might be quite high because IMD waitlist many candidates and some of them will chose another school's offer (so they are never offered a seat) and the patient folks are likely to accept later on.

on facebook we are 11 members but it looks like only 6 have accepted the offer!
