Hi,

I several times tried to use "Assess Your Chances" form but it constantly shows error saying that I need to fill last section while in reality I did it. Sorry, but I could not find technical support contacts on the web site.

Thanks

Hello,

It might be because you have over 1000 characters in your last essay. When data is missing, it is highlighted in yellow and there is a cross beside the page number.
If you still have the issue, please send us an email with a printscreen to mbainfo@imd.ch. We'll look into it. Thanks.

Best regards

Mark

Hi.

While filling the application I saw that you consider international experience only if it is greater than two months. I work in a Defense manufacturing company and have been working with foreign multinational firms and have also visited a few companies in Europe and in Korea. However each of these trips have been for a weeks duration. I am afraid that won't qualify to be mentioned in the international experience category?

Thanks

Dear Rupok,

You can send all the documents by email to mbafinance@imd.ch, no need to send hard copies.

Quote:

Yes, Bangladesh is considered as a developing country.

Quote:
# What if I have an MBA already from a Bangladeshi University?

You will have to explain why you want a second MBA and why from IMD.

Quote:
# What about the IMD, MIT Collaboration? is it still operational?

The partnership with MIT is not related to the MBA program but the Driving Strategic Innovation (DSI) program.

Quote:
# If I get the social responsibility scholarship, will i be elligible for anohter scholarship?

If you get the social responsibility scholarship you cannot be elligible for another scholarship. You will have to apply for a bank loan.

Quote:
# How many students are awarded this Social Responsibility Scholarship?

One social responsibility scholarship is available.

Thanks!

Best regards,

Mark

Hi,

If you have not lived outside of your home country, you can still apply providing you show us that you have had international experience in your career. In your case, you will have to write about about your trips to Europe and Korea, and explain what you did. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks.

Best regards,

Mark

Thank you for keeping up this good work. I applied for the IMD social responsibility scholarship on the deadline, Today! It's way to close for my comfort and I was expecting an acknowledgement to ease me up a bit. I've just got the following reply form the 'MBAFinance@imd.ch'

Dear Mark,

Most of top US schools often publish their acceptance rates.
I am wondering what is the acceptance rate % at IMD?
I know that given the specific of school it may be different, but I am intersted from the statistics point of view and dont tend to compare rates.

thanks !

Hello there,

The IMD MBA program is a bit particular in the sense that we accept exactly 90 students per year. Since application numbers change from year to year that means that the acceptance rate also changes every year. As a number I can give you that on average, we receive about 400-500 applications per intake.

Best regards,
Simone for the IMD MBA team

Hi,
thanks a lot, +1kudos.
that seems to be close to some top US schools.

Can I ask if IMD releases any official real time update ..40 admitted...20 waitlisted ..something like
that to help ease the speculations on such forums.
Most of the posts I am reading mention a waiting period of 7 to 10 days from the assessment day which is very good I must say.
Does this mean that a decision is taken after a collective view of 2-4 batches of assessment ?
Appreciate some insights ^_^

Thanks

The final round deadline is fast approaching and hence I request you to reply my queries.

1. I have got a positive response from the adcom for "assess my chances". However i have been asked to highlight atleast my international exposure since i do not possess any international experience. For the past two and a half years, i have been working with an indian organization acquired by sanofi aventis. But yes, i got exposed to their standard operating procedures. How good is to portray this?

2. I am a dentist by education and clinical researcher by profession. I have a gmat score of 670 and a work experience of 5 years in medical e-learning and clinical research, out of which 3 years is managerial experience. I am right now working as an assistant manager for sanofi aventis in india. I am looking at my career advancement and I did not find anyone from a similar profile in the previous mba class. Can you kindly correct me if i am wrong.

3. What chance do i stand for admission if i apply for this last round. I read that reapplications are not accepted at imd. So should i wait for an year?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Ramya

Dear Ramya,

1) Thank you for submitting an Assess Your Chances form. International exposure is: time spent living outside your country of origin, the international scope of your career or your knowledge of foreign languages. If you don’t have international exposure, please wait before you apply.

2) Regarding MBA profiles, it changes each year. What is important is your career progression and that you are business oriented. Pharmaceutical is an area where we place a number of our graduates each year.

3) We don’t like to talk about chances of being accepted, if you have a good profile and fit in well with the class, you will be accepted. If you have doubts and can wait, then you might want to postpone your application to next year. We don’t refuse reapplications, but do recommend you wait a year or two before reapplying.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards

Mark

Dear Mark,

Every business school talks a lot about diversity in its classroom. Diversity can be displayed not only by age, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, professional expereince, but also by disabiilty. As disabled candidates have to run an extra mile to be on par with the able-bodied candidates, I beleive that disability is also a diversity. As IMD places many MBA candidates in the pharmaceutical companies, the disabled candidates can bring different perspectives to the classrom and work. As IMD has an essay for the disabled candidates, I wonder whether IMD admits disabled candidates as IMD MBA program considered the most intense program in the world? If yes, please inform me the number of disabled candidates admitted in the past especially last three years.

Not only for IMD, but also for other busienss schools, I am not able to find the number of disabled candidates admitted.

Dear Team,

Thanks for replying my previous query. I am proficient in three languages as of now. If I learn another language, will that anyway help with the international exposure?

Hello Ramya,

We do consider knowledge of foreign languages as international outlook. If you are already proficient in three languages then show us other elements like time spent living outside your country of origin or the international scope of your career.

Best regards,

Mark
