Here is how the interview day went for me :
We were 8.
We started at 8 am by a visit of the campus. I had already visited twice so it was a slow start for me but a good way to get to know the 7 other applicants. At 8h45, we had 30-35 minutes to prepare a 5 mn presentation with slides.
Then, some had their 45 mn interviews. We all gave our presentation around 10h45, one by one. Then we had a follow-up case on the same topic where we had to work all together on a new 5 minutes presentation. Very interesting group dynamic indeed !
At lunch, one alumni from the same nationality and same profile accompanied each of us and we could discuss about their experience. I do not know if this is part of the recruitment but I would not be surprised ! Anyway, it was very interesting to discuss like that. And the food is excellent !! Some students gained 7 kg in 1 year !
Then at 1h45, a professor lead the case we had to prepare and tested us for 2h with group discussions and presentations. Once again it is really well thought to judge each of us.
At 3h45. I had my 45 mn interview. The interviewer asked the usual question Why MBA/IMD/Now. Strenghts and Weaknesses. How I am seen by my colleagues and boss. What I would do after IMD ? Why not INSEAD ? He did not try to push me too much. He seemed supportive.
After that, we all attended a 1h15 lecture of Benoit Leleux, the start-up/entrepreneurship professor. Very interesting for me with my entrepreneur background. Once again, it showed me how much i d like to be part of this group next year.
2 working days have passed. 8 days left before the call or the ding.
Fingers crossed.

I was on the same interview the lunch (appart from being great) is also a small part since the students that sat with us are then asked to fill in a one page form. What is great is that we wher a group of different individuals there no one was really competeing against each other.

Oh, I didn't know about the evaluation by the host.

How many nationalities (and which) were yesterday? When will you receive your answer?

Thanks!

Will be great to learn who's also accepted.

Re: IMD Applicants 2012 [#permalink] New post 25 Mar 2011, 04:24
Same here :)
Answer came after 3 days only.
I'm extremely happy and very likely to join.

Profile:
Male, FR, 32
GMAT: 750
GPA: not sure (13.42/20 from French Grande Ecole) - Master's Degree Ind. Engineering.
9yrs of experience in various industries

Admitted to:
- IMD
- kellogg
- LBS
- ESADE

+ Chicago Booth (executive MBA) ==> My employer wants me to do Exec MBA, which is why I applied, though my preference goes to short FT program.

From a financial standpoint, and even career-wise, the exec-MBA makes more sense (and Booth is a great institution), but my heart still leans towards FT...

Same here. I only applied to IMD because it is the only school that fits my profile. Small crowd, Industry-focused, Professors close to industry with a lot of consultancy, Consultancy projects for multinational, in South Africa and for a start-up, and a great entrepreneurship course.

No, it usually takes 10 business days but this was an exception and we were told about it because the director of admissions will be out of office for 2 weeks.
