Wow! Thanks Aman for posting detailed account of interview. Very very helpful. Any other Indian that you are aware of who is accepted so far?


Pleasure, indeed!

There are a number of Indian names on the participants' list. Certainly, Vedant Pathak has been active on this forum and there are a few others, but not sure if any are on this forum.

I have a question and would appreciate a quick answer. Can the 3 letters of recommendation be completed online by my recommenders? Or do they have to print the PDF and write on it?

Sorry the instructions are not to clear on their site. Would really appreciate a response, as my recommenders are incredibly busy people who dont have time to sit and write handwritten notes.

Thanks!!

Not that I'm directly affected (being on the waitlist), but the CHF rate has gone way up + 25-30% within the 6 month. The initially expensive tuition has reached the whooping 81K EUR from 65K EUR or so in just February this year. I wonder how you guys are coping with it.

An interesting idea would be to ask the school if they would offset the rate increase by offering bursaries or direct discounts..

It is indeed quite worrying for the 49 of us already accepted. If you have any ideas of what we should ask IMD to cope with this CHF rise (1.0499 CHF to 1 euro !), let us know. We are currently doing a brainstorming session on the subject.
My first thought would be to ask for an extended loan (in terms of cash and delay of payment) to let the CHF go down, because it will in the 1 to 3 year time frame. What do you think ?

For one thing, I would not bet my money on Franc going much lower the current rate. With the unfolding EU crisis, particularly Ireland/Greece sovereign debt, I think there is a fair chance that CHF will continue climbing.

I would suggest to play it dumb and simply ask the school how THEY think to ease the burden of the prospective students. If that's a collective inquiry it might work.

BTW, how does the tuition loan work at IMD? Is it granted by an affiliated bank or by the school? Are loans guaranteed for all admits?

Hi Mahipalg, nice to read that! mine is this Friday!
How many you were!
could you give some more details about:
- the case discussion: I've seen it's 2hrs long with 2 IMD officers and prof, what is the discussion and ambiance like, will the officers be the animators! should we be very preapred for this or just a detailed read through of the case is sufficient to make a good participation...
- the impromptu presentation, I've seen that the pres is not directly after the time they give you to prepare the slides! are we all presenting together maybe!

- Any stat figures communicated (candidates already accepted, nationalities)!

- what's your estimated wait now!

Best best of luck pal

HI IMDier,

First of all good luck, hope you a good session. In relation to my day we were 5, in true IMD style with 5 people from 5 counties, 5 industries, 5 backgrounds and more importantly 5 good calibre individuals.

In relation to your specific question about case discussion, Prof led the discussion no other staff engaged in it. They were just monitoring us. Prof was excellent, a very good listener with sharp questioning skills, exactly what one would expect from an IMD prof. In relation to preparation for case study, I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer. I think I over prepared for it, and at times I was jumping from making one point or other. Some would say that’s not a good thing to do in group discussion as one need to build on others point. Not best of my strengths. Other way to look at it is that life gives you all situation at times one knows a lot about the subject other times has no clues, but in both situations one need to be effective. Therefore my advise would be to prepare so much that it gives you confidence to attend the day. (Health warning: beware I have just been for the interview and not yet selected, therefore my advise may not be the best to have)

impromptu presentation: yes you present before all applicants one after another.

In relation to stats, no I didn’t ask any question to related to this nor they mentioned any thing about it.

Official time line is 2 weeks after the interview, but we were told it may be bit earlier than that.

Hope this helps. A number of people in this forum have given a good description of the interview day therefore I will not repeat the content. But my advise would be simple, if possible be yourself they are very helpful bunch and try their best to make the as good as it could be. Also they are not looking for best candidate; they are looking for best fit of candidates. The way I look at it is all 5 of us were good. I would find very difficult to select few between us. But they do this year in year out, therefore I leave this in there capable hands and trust their judgement. If IMD MBA is not for me then I better know it now, then after spending £100k and a year of my life.

Good luck and hope you have a good day.

Cheers,

Hi Mahipalg,
Congratulations and thank you very much for your explanation.
I passed mine and waiting now for the results!

After how many days of the interview have you heard! was it a call or by mail!
And how many days do they give you after the call to confirm your participation and to pay the 15k CHF.

Best of luck
