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.

Thanks, and I was admitted in Round 2.

When are you looking to apply? The campus event is held every 2 months (I think) and is limited to 8 people at a time (again, a very personalised event - when I went to visit INSEAD, there were 250 people there). Also, from the MBA portal, I see that 49 participants (out of 90) have already been confirmed from just the first two rounds, so I'd advise to apply as soon as you can, if you're aiming for a seat in the class of 2012.

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 ;)


Menehn,

You may be right - as I said, it was only my personal opinion. I do not believe at all that the conclusion is assessed, but how you get to the conclusion (i.e., thought process and logic), along with how you present it. In our group, the person with the best presentation skills (who we nominated for our group presentation) was actually not accepted, and some of the others were.

Overall, it is the whole package that is being assessed, so if one is slightly weak in one department, but can bring something exceptional to the table in another, then I'm sure that they will be accepted (diversity conditions permitting, of course).

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 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
