Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Suprisingly, the two schools you have mentioned are the ones that I am applying to. (Cornell and IESE). And ofcourse, LBS for sure. Thats one school that is pulling me. INSEAD, thats competitive and a very short program. (Still, with a 640 gmat, things are glim )
The short listed with some addition (after extensive search... ) numering according to my priority.
1. London Business School
5. Inst. Empressa
6. RSM (Netherlands)
8. HEC (Paris)
7. SDA (Italy)
I may cut down 2 schools if I get to hear from the other schools at an early stage.
Whats your opinion on the list and my success rate Hjort. Given that GMAT 640 (49, 29). I would be having a total of 10 years exprcn by the time I enroll the program. International exprnc (5 countries). Main strngths, Innovation, teamleader, extra curri (outside office), and 4 languages.
This looks like a good list - I am glad to see Rotterdam and HEC (Paris) on the list. Over time, I hope to see more students express an interest in the business schools of contintental Europe.
As you are well aware, IESE pursposely admits relatively few students over 30 for its regular MBA program. I am not sure if that applies in your case.
"I have noticed that only 5% of the class is made up of students above 30. Is this indicative of the applicant pool or is it by design?
It is by design. Our MBA is intended to be of maximum utility for those who have reached a point in their professional lives where furthering their knowledge of business in a formal setting is the next logical step towards advancing their career. Exceptional applicants with limited work experience but high potential for career success will compliment the students with a more mature view of the world of business, but the extremes on both ends of the age spectrum make up a small percentage of the class. The committee will evaluate candidates not only on what they may be able to contribute to the class as a whole but also on the ability of our MBA to help accelerate their career growth. In general, the MBA is geared toward professionals toward the beginning of a stellar career."
Quite a many people have mentioned about Judge school. My perception was/is that, the US schools have so called "Internship" that will provide me with practical exprnc., which is absent in the one year program such as Judge.
I am not sure about the career prospects (as soon as completing the MBA), but on the longer run, yeah, I agree. Its the initial outcome of the MBA that I feel is important.
How good do you feel is Judge, when it comes career path. what is ur opinion on the success rate of my applicatin to the list of schools that I had posted (LBS, Cornell, IESE, RSM, HEC)
