Just got a call re interview (R4 applicant). I asked for late Sept and was given Sept 21, 25, or 28 - yet to select which one. I understand there are also alternative dates in early Sept.

Good luck to all :)


Congratulations!

Hey IMD2013,

You seem to be saying that almost everyone got accepted R3! Could you share more details about that?

From one deleted post you were stating that some rumors was spreading about the low number of applications this year due to the swiss franc! Please share any data you might have as it could be very informative for any prospect applicants...

Does IMD send a regret letter to applicants who are rejected or is no response assumed to be rejection ?

They send the letters for waitlist and ding; call for offer. :)

PS oops, just noticed the question is more related to the first part, application consideration. For application feedback promised expectations are 3-6 weeks I believe.

R3 Applicant; offered a place on the waitlist. :-( Worst day of my life.

Do we have any folks here who are in a similar situation?

Hi. I am applying in R5. Is it a solo flight or is there anyone on this forum who is also an R5?

Anybody who applied for August 1st round received interview call? I submitted my application a couple of days before the August 1st deadline; I have not heard from IMD thus far.

To Hashbash

I have just submitted the application for Round 5. I do believe there will not be many applicants, taking into account almost obsessive stand of IMD on the class diversity and good fit to the rest of the class. It seems that at this stage it is more about how different your profile is from the rest, rather than your capabilities.
Might be wrong though, will see on the interview day.

From what I can tell, IMD seems consistent with its strategy of accepting 15-20 applicants each round. In R5 it might be some gap filling which could certainly be at your advantages or disavantages depending on your profile (nationality but also work experience, age, background ...). However, IMD puts lot of emphasis on the employability of the candidate so a strong profile will still catch their attention no matter his background, they will manage to find a seat for him!

My two cents,

Just to share......
What I struggle to grasp in IMD selction logic is such a strong quota on nationality (at least it is what I understood from the posts I have read on this thread). Taking into account, that many people who apply for IMD, work outside of their home countries, would the diversity in cultural/market exposure be a more relevant factor than Nationality per se? For example, I have worked in 6 countries in the last 9 years and have no work experience in my country of birth and very limited cultural exposure to it. Why would my nationality play any role at all in a selection process?
We live in such a mobile and diverse world that nationality cannot, by any means, be a reliable variable in determining person`s thinking process or cultural peculiarities.
p.s good luck to all applying for Round 5 and if you get an invite for interview, let me know if you have any questions on what to do/where to stay in Lausanne during your stay.

To SwissNomad , Hashbash

I'm also in for R5. Submitted my application.

Any clue by when they start sending interview details ?

Thanks

Swissnomad,

Maybe some marketing there. They want to highlight the diversity of the class and what clear benchmark could be used instead of the number of nationalities (by the way 46 for 2012). However, I do think that they have a flexibility in the selection in terms of nationality. They certainly don't have any quota saying "we need 4 Swiss this year" for instance. Another parameter they use I felt was the work experience, don't forget that their reputation rely tremendiously on their good placements, so I think they really try to diversify the background, work experience and career goal of the participants as much as possible to ease the placements post-MBA

To NS1234,
My understanding is that it is roughly 3 weeks after the deadline. So you would be looking at the end of September.

To mazwaz,
you are probably right- it does sound like a "claim exercise". I provided them with all my nationalities. Adcom can pick the one they find the most appealing for the claim composition of the group:)
By the way, does anyone know how many Australians have been admitted for 2013 or where I can look it up? FB page shows only 40 odd students for 2013 and is hard to see where these people are from.

Hi,
I know of at least one: myself :)
I am not aware of any easy way to get hold of the nationalities of those already admitted.

Gday, you are not in FMCG NPD, are you:)? Otherwise, I can safely plan for holidays around late Sept:). Out of curiosity, why all the way from Oz? Keen to know your background, so will know what to focus on during the interview (if I even get one, taking account that all my nationalities are now represented).

Thanks a million for sharing...
