Many events at half-time [#permalink] New post 29 Jun 2014, 13:00
FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Many events at half-time
​We had so many events during the recent weeks that the time flew extremely quickly. Last week my wife started to work at a medtech company. We had ICP client visit, a lunch with alumnis from DuPont, presentations by the Vice-President of the Italian oil Major, Eni and the Credit Risk Manager of the Brazilian mining giant, Vale. We formed our new group for the Navigating the Future conference and received our „half-year” feedback. On Friday we had the" Southern" hemisphere wine tasting and a huge barbecue party organized by the classmates, whose birthday was in June.

And finally I had a proper weekend with excursions to surrounding Lausanne: we have seen marmots at Roche-de-Naye, waterfall in the amazing cave of Valleorbe and also a fortress (Fort de Pre-Giroud) built by the Swiss army prior the world war II. The weather was not so nice with us, when we played today with the representatives of the famous year of 2009, whose team played final at the MBAT, but it was a great fun, until our classmate Juan suffered an injury. It seems, he is better now, hopefully he can join us tomorrow for our class-excursion to the French side of the lake.

Mbaoneyear, I think u misunderstood me, the link I gave is the one where IMD's official marketing team is answering questions.

I am a bit worried that is a not a good recruiting season for second year.
may be you can throw some more light on this!

Never mind I posted it any ways, ( while thinking of you :D)

as you know, IMD is very different from the other schools, the class is very small, more experienced, and hence they graduates usually get higher starting salaries than the other top schools (including harvard), for many years the MEDIAN salary was in the range 130K to 140K. Last year, it fell dramatically to $119K! and the IMD was late in releasing that report. It is hard to get similar salary (and very difficult indeed if less) to the other school's grads who are less experienced. I see schools such as Oxford's said gives its grads very strong start salaries, this year for example the median starting salaries for consulting sector was about $130K or so, pretty similar to Harvard, Wharton, and Stanford, and higher than INSEAD (the consulting school), remember that Oxford's said is less than 20 years old! even in industry sector (the area of which IMD is a leader) it gives its grads starting salaries better than IMD last year! I am interesting to do an MBA in an accelerated form, one year, so I did some research about schools that offer such programs.. But lets see this year report of IMD, I wish my feeling is wrong as I know the school offers pretty special mba education.

this is the timeline for June deadline, calls are going out between 3 and 6 weeks.
as far as I understood, IMD is busy planning and organizing the assessments for Round 3 now!

I am not sure this is the timeline for June as it is similar to the other rounds. There are 8 weeks for every round during which the invitation would take 2 to 3 weeks, preparation for assessment 2 to 3 weeks, and they get in a week or so after the assessment day. The only exception for September round where there is limited time, and hence they process applications quite fast. I somehow believe in the last 2 years, there is some kind of decline in applications..and therefore, there is pretty good chance of acceptance if you have been invited to the interview. anyhow, Did you applied to Kellogg 1Y? if so, how was the process? and have you considered the Columbia January Intake program?

Congrats rizz,
I think you have been given a lot of options ;)
good luck!

however i am surprised that out of some 27 (9 per day * 3) only 3 of us have announced that we have been selected this is very bad.
I don't know why participation in this forum is decreasing so much.

Today's guest entry is from Brazilian Bernardo Tarbes.

Greetings from Rio,

The World Cup environment and the beaches are the highlight of my trip. As a Brazilian, I'm a little bit puzzled with Brazil's last match.. Haha

I met Jack and Andre here in Brazil and we had a great time together :)

IMD just released the career report, I do not feel comfortable with it. There is no statistics for the class of 2013!! they take the THREE Year average, very strange indeed. It may indicates not a good results for the class of 2013 so that they try to cover it up by such average approach! Can you guys comment on this.

FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Ciao from Lara
Today's entry brought by my classmate Lara, who seems to be having a nice Italian vacation! Thanks Lara, enjoy the rest of your trip!

---

​Ciao
tutti! The journey from Lausanne to Rome via Antibes, Tuscany, and Umbria has
been as fun as it has been beautiful! Assisi is the perfect example of the
breathtaking views we've seen. And Rome is... well, Rome. Spectacular! Tonight,
we will see La Bohème at Terme di Caracalla. Hope everyone else is enjoying the
well-deserved break!
