Hi everybody, hoping to apply next year to IMD. Wanted to discuss recently published IMD's 2012 placement results...

Average salary down by more than $10,000 ($142,412 to $131,566) and median salary by more than $20,000 ($140,648 to $119,049) since the placement report of 2011 !! What has happened?!?

Yeah it's an interesting report for sure - I think you will find that's what is happening across schools in Europe and probably the USA too though, given the tough employment picture. If salaries aren't dropping, they're probably not going up by too much.

Also, if you're looking at the US dollar figure for IMD, there are probably some fluctuations due to exchange rates in play as well.

I am hopeful that the timing is good. As the economic situation improves over the next couple years, hopefully there will be a rebound in demand for MBAs.

Very interesting.. The median salary has dropped almost 10% in euro as well. Considering the experience IMD folks have, it is surprising to see the salaries go down so much.

Both Marshmallow and I are matriculating in a few months and the placement report, as you'd imagine, is top of our minds. He has done a great analysis on his blog which echoes for the most part my thinking too. This is an indication of very tough 2012 for Euro zone and similar trends can be seen in other places too. you have to look at these placement reports with a grain of salt and I think they only have a limited shelf life due to ever changing economic climate. I can’t say I was surprised to see the report.

Hi guys,

I was planning on using tonight's respite to share my view on this as a candidate currently in the program. But I just saw on my feed that the question has just been addressed by IMD's marketing team: ask-imd-admissions-116514-100.html#p1231157

While I'm on the forum posting, I can only support a comment made a few days again suggesting that applicants try to meet on the day before the assessment on campus. It really helps to know a bit one another before D day.

Cheers

Can someone tell the group as to how many are already admitted? I know that admitted folks have a way to pull these numbers. In fact, they can tell how many are admitted by country. It will be of great help!

Thanks a bunch!

Thanks.

There is no summary by country but most are either working in a country other than their own and/or are dual nationals. I think that if you offer something unique, there shouldn't be an issue at this stage yet.

Any new acceptances from round 2 interviews? I think most of the round 2 interviews are completed.

Hello everyone,

first of all, congratulations to those of you who have already been accepted for the 2014 intake. And to all the others who are still waiting: my fingers are crossed for you.
I am myself in the middle of applications and will apply in R4 on August 1.

May I start a (slightly silly) quick poll among you IMD applicants:
Have you asked your recommenders to use the online recommendation link? Or did you rather send them the pdf version of the questions for them to complete? And do you see any advantages in one or the other (handling recommenders questions, ...)

Thanks a lot for your insights!

Hi guys,

If some of you are in Melbourne or Sydney during the first two weeks of July and are interested in IMD and/or in talking to a current participant, contact me in PM.


For other cities/countries, check out this page: http://www.imd.org/programs/mba/Come-an ... m?prog=MBA
It should be updated soon and you may realize that a info session held by a current participant may be held close to you during our summer break.

Cheers

Why so silent everyone? Or is it the calm before the storm? 3 weeks up since June 1. Have the interview calls started flowing in for R3 applicants or is it still too early?

Hello, May i know the latest count of admitted people and their nationalities? Though i am particularly interested in the number of French already in the programs, this info could be helpful to others as well.

Thanks in the advance.
