Perhaps, an old analysis from 2008 but still an interesting one that shows that IMD has one of the highest yield rates amongst business schools. Top 3 following Harvard and Schulich.

Yield measures how many applicants who received an offer end up going to the program.

Applicants from Asia, Australia and Latin America, can you please share how well is IMD brand known in your country/region, how big and strong is the network?

Other regions are more than welcome to share their info as well.

Thank you!

Thanks imdapplicant2012 and good luck with R2 application!

Also good luck to those remaining groups to go through the interview in R1, both in Lausanne and Singapore.

I've returned from the assessment day on April 3rd. There were 7 of us, all male. As for the nationalities - two from France, three from China, one from India and one from Ukraine. Engineering background was prevalent in our group (only one of us was with finance background), many of the fellows had significant int'l experience. Everything went quite good in my opinion, the day was an excellent and pleasant experience, Lisa told us that we should expect the reply not earlier than in two weeks due to the Easter holidays. Let me know if you have any particular questions - I'll be happy to answer them in case I can. :)

PS libraal, thank you for the kind words, and please be informed that IMD brand is not very well known within Ukraine (most of the high-level executives I know about here are associated with another school)

For the well known stuff!!! I think it has a lot to do with the alumni network.

Internationally nothing can beat Insead brand in Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia... (only HSW)
But in the US due to a fewer alumni base (compare to the US schools) Insead is not well known (they have even opened a new office there to market their brand).

So this is certainly the worse drawback for IMD but on the other hand IMD has one of the best career services of the world so you don't really need that huge network to secure a good job post-MBA and frankly once you are on the right track and 4-5 years out of school your work experience will carry much more weight than the name of your school.

Thats my 2 cents guys ;)

Hi libraal,
I contacted quite a few IMD alums in Australia, to clarify the brand recognition specifically in that country . The feedback was consistently that the programme was less known than {HBS/INSEAD/LBS/...} but that none of them had experienced much of a problem when seeking a position in Australia.

I had my interview on 30-March and the results were out today. There were four in our group and these are the results for them

Canadian - admitted
Italian working in Belgium = Not sure ( he already had an admit from Harvard)
Georgian working in Turkey = Waitlisted
Indian working in US ( i.e me) = Waitlisted.

I have an admit from Oxford for which I have to pay the first installment by April 26. So will wait till then if I hear anything from IMD.

All the best guys.

Since you have to make a decision very soon, I would let IMD know. There is nothing to lose.

Thanks noinpac!

Are you in Australia or looking to relocate there? What were the occupations and industries the alums you connected with in Australia?

I was analysing LBS employment report from 2011 yesterday to see how many students from different regions got jobs in other regions and here's what I got in terms of students receiving jobs that were not from the region:
31 students got jobs in Europe excl. UK
7 students got jobs in Asia
13 got jobs in US/Canada
4 got jobs in Lat. America
169 students got jobs in the UK

Middle East and Africa and Australia got a negative demographics in a sense that people from those regions preferred to stay elsewhere, resulting in a net negative flow.

With regards to IMD, I know 2 guys got jobs in Korea with Samsung and a couple got jobs in Singapore who were not from there.

Kiran, hang in there man! I think you may still have a chance - a hard deadline for our group is when the first installment must be paid on 12-April. If someone with your profile decides not to go you may get off the wait list! I know there are a couple of us still weighing up and deciding, so there's a chance.

Now it would not hurt to engage with IMD and let them know that if they accept you you will reject all other offers. Schools are interested in maintaining their yield rates high, so they may decide to go for you in case you give them enough assurances.

I'm looking to relocate there. The people who answered were mostly either in the energy industry or in consulting.

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 don't have any figures, but after talking with current students and alumnus I don't see much concern about finding a job in switzerland for non-swiss or even non-UE citizens.

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.

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!

Hi mazwaz, my concern is the other way round: I'm wondering to what extent it is easy to relocate geographically after IMD to a country which is neither your home country/last country you worked in and neither Switzerland. In the first, one can expect you still have a decent network; and in the second, IMD has a tremendous reputation. But what about a European guy wanting to relocate to Australia after IMD?

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.
