If you don't mind me asking, why do you want to have a gap in your employment ? My plan is to keep working until begin of December, and start school in Jan, so I won't have a gap in my employment.

what would be your plan for financing? Prodigy Finance does not work with HEC and french banks all require french co-signer. I like HEC's new program with focus on business analytics (in partnership with IBM), but i am very uncertain about financing options

i am bilingual (russian/ukrainian) and indicated that in the application. somewhere in faq I read it's enough. but I need to double check with adcom. just in case, I have an entry in the transcript about successful test in ukrainian language while at undergraduate college. so I hope it would be enough.

I would still use 1-year in insead to learn new languages, but without additional pressure

hv hrd dat HEC is more generous with scholarships
loans from banks based in India if prodigy is NA

btw hv hrd dat prodigy is not very dependable..in the sense that they may reject ur application for a loan without any reason
whereas in India if u hv solid collateral u will get a study loan..altho at arnd 12.5% interest rate:(:(

Doesn't seem like rupee will be stronger in the near term. In fact worse is not over for the rupee yet. This fall is on the possibility of a winding down in US Monetary stimulus. FII have pulled a lot from Indian bonds already. Equity they are still restrained. If US goes ahead with its plan It will choke up capital inflows in emerging markets further triggering liquidation by FIIs

You have about 2 months for internship at INSEAD if you start in Jan 2014. So, some employers will, depend on who they are.
