The case itself was 3/4 of A4 sheet of paper iirc, accompanied by the table (not large) with key financial figures, very general figures. Those can be analysed with general logic, does not require any professional background (while it can be helpful if you have that). :)

The interview in my case was very pleasant, lasted about 45mins, questions were more or less as expected regarding my background, aspirations, plans for the future, what are my weaknesses and strength, based on my application. No provocative or particularly tough things. My perception is that the interviewer is interested in seeing what kind of person you are and what is behind that nice information in the application. Again, in a very pleasant and co-operative manner, at least this was the case in my interview.

As for the competition, I cannot say for sure; but I believe most of us in the group were not direct competitors due to different origin and background. Also I believe they have their process established well enough to be able to make an offer to any candidate, invited for the assessment day, if that candidate really demonstrate what they are seeking for for the class composition. I'd suggest not to worry about the competition once you're invited, but concentrate on delivering your best during the day, including good teamwork and willingness to deliver best results both personally and as the group. :) In my case all the teammates were really co-operative and willing to help and support each other - I believe this behaviour was beneficial for all of us.

Thank you so much. This is great insight. How big the case was and does it include financial figures?

Also, could you share about interview ? How is it ? What is your perception ?

It looks like there is a huge competition if they invite many many people and already most of them are taken.

They are really good in what they are doing. :)

From what I've heard from the people around - all of them were at least satisfied with the day, one colleague had interview a bit more on the probing side than mine, but again it was pleasant and nice. :)

I've applied R4, will share the outcome once it I will be notofied. :)

My profile is 5 years of corporate finance in progressive roles, graduated from a 'tier a' canadian university, some entrepreneurship and good gmat score.

I was at the September 16 interview with vd. There were 9 of us. Of the 5 I know about – 3 have been waitlisted, 2 accepted.

Just wanted to share with you all my experience, for the benefit of future generations of applicants :)

  • Applied: Apr-1-2011
  • Email on interview decision: May-10 (there was a phone call a few days before that)
  • interviewed: May-24
  • decision to put me into WL: Jun-8
  • Asked by adcom for the confirmation to keep me in the WL: Sep-8
    (I also attached some information of my career progression)
  • Finally rejected: Nov-8

Pretty sure I was rejected because there were too many applicants of my nationality (Russia). At least three Russians were waitlisted of those who interviewed with me and in the next round. Having said that, I still had a really good experience in terms of communication, interview day, etc.

Good luck!



Sorry to hear about the negative decision, esp so soon before the matriculation but glad to hear you had a good experience and were able to learn something. Are you going to try IMD again or whats the plan now?

Would have been my moment of joy of rejecting an offer :)
To be completely honest, I would not have been able to afford the course without taking on too much debt, so I was reluctant anyway.
