I was lucky enough to be accepted at both IMD and INSEAD. I chose IMD because I think it is a better fit for me.

My profile: 34 years old/ GMAT 640/ Canadian/ Entrepreneur with science background / fluent in 3 languages/ 12 years of international work experience.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Oh man! I don't mean to be harsh but I'd recommend you to explore this forum a little more. There's plenty info on everything you ask about. There's also blogspot, businessweek forum, etc. Do google it!

That's what I could find for you, and I'm sure that's not all of it

Got a call for interview. The dates I was given as options are in late August ... which make the IMD application process 3 months+. Is this typical?

I guess most of adcom is on vacation in July and perhaps in August, that's why it takes so long to get through in this particular admission round.

Good point. That timeline is kind of problematic for the purpose of weighing options with other schools. Oh well.

Can you be more detailed about the presentation and the topic and what is expected in general when doing the presentation. How many people is the presentation addressed to ?

Hey Aman, thank you for the details on the presentation, but let me pose a few more questions to you
A) your assumptions relating to structuring, decomposition etc are all thought through the point of view of a consultant/ business major. So am I to assume that the emphasis is on the conclusion rather than presentation skills ?
B) I had read somewhere that PowerPoint is not the medium for presentations? So what is then ?

And can you tell me your profile please and why IMD ? Thanks

A) I'm not sure I fully understand your question (not sure what you mean by "thought through from the point of view of a consultant/business major"), but will try to answer as best as I can. I think the thought process/logic/flow is probably the most important aspect. In our group of 7, my conclusion was completely different to everyone else. What I mean to say is that there is no "right" conclusion - its like A > B and B > C, therefore, A > C. Presentation skills are pretty important, I believe, from what I hear, as it is a core part of the course. But, I don't think presentation skills are the most important element - its content first, then the packaging.
B) You'll need to hand-prepare your presentations on transparencies using coloured pens. You present using an overhead projector.

In terms of profile, I'm 30/M/Indian, 760 GMAT, First Degree from India, Masters from the UK, around 8 years of Work Exp mostly in the UK but including international assignments, in Audit, Consulting and Corporate Finance, ACA, CFA, Speak English, Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi and Urdu.

A number of common reasons for joining IMD (class size, diversity, 1 year course, intensity, more "mature" class, small but extremely helpful alumni network, career services, etc.) have been recounted on these forums on several occasions. Amongst other things, what stood out for me was the ability to do a top notch personalised MBA - given the class size of 90 and ability to get very close to the faculty and the diversity as well as quality of other participants, it really is possible to take away exactly what you want from the MBA (within certain constraints). To me, this is why every IMD MBA is unique, not a standardised factory product.

I strongly suggest that everyone attends the one-day on campus introduction to IMD (even if one isn't planning on doing an MBA, it is an experience to remember). It was this campus visit the really showed me what an IMD MBA was all about and made my decision for me.

Hope this helps, but as always, don't hesitate to ask if you have any more questions.

Firstly, your profile is king :). I wish I get a 760 :). Secondly, very inspiring as well and I will definitely attend their campus event, it's already on my to do list. Needless to say I'm still in a grey area regarding the presentation but I guess the unknown is the aim of the school. Cheers and let me know the decision regarding your admission.

Aman: you did an excellent summary of the assessment day! It was exactly what happened on our May 24th assessment except we were only 6 candidates: 3 russians, 1 japanese, 1 greek and myself - vietnamese and our assessment day was a sunny day :lol: .
As Aman said, I think there is no set quota as the our day's results were 2A/2WL/2D.
For the impromptu presentation, I really think the key is the presentation skill. Of course, the content needs to followed a logical flow; however, I don't think the adcom really look at the outcomes of our analysis. 6 of us came with 6 ways of presentation, analysis and conclusions which were all extremely interesting. It's really the power of diversity that IMD looks for, isn't it ;)
