I really love the idea of INSEAD, but I don't think I'll apply there unless I'm dead set on consulting or industry. It seems like finance placement is almost always investment banking, or treasury/corporate finance. Are there any particular firms with which INSEAD a particularly strong relationship for asset management, trading or private equity?

Thanks and hope all is well in Fontainebleu.

To be honest with you I have not looked at the Finance placement possibilities very closely. I am not particularly interested in the space (other than potentially IB) and hence am not in the clue. Let me make some queries and get back to you.

Dear All,
I am a prospective applicant to INSEAD full-time MBA program from Europe.
I have a 720 GMAT score, a 4 GPA and a 4-year work experience in Engineering in the Energy sector. I am currently working as a Management Consultant (at BCG) post-MBA.

I would like to know whether my application would be considered from the INSEAD admission comitee, given I already have an MBA from a lower rank local European school (this is a tale of leadership, perseverance and ability to cope with challenges which I will detail into my essays).

I have obviously been thinking deeply about the rationale of pursuing a second MBA for me and I found that the INSEAD MBA program really fits with my future international aspirations, the skills and the enviroment I need to pursue my career goals, building on the foundations I have set since now.

I really feel INSEAD is what I want and need and I can contribute to the INSEAD experience.

I would use the essay n°5 to explain in detail the rationale and fit for a second, truly international MBA at INSEAD.

Would my previous MBA completely prevent me from being considered for admission? Will this in any case dramatically lower my chances of being admitted?

Thank you in advance
Best Regards
