Hi Camille,

Two questions-

1) Will the Sept 2017 intake essays be different than the ones for Jan 2017 intake?

2) I am 36 now with 11 years of work experience. I will be 37 in Set 2017. Does INSEAD admit students of my age (Executive MBA is not an option for me)?

Thank you.

My question is,

if today A has dual citizenship from country X and Y.
A grew up and worked in country X and has very little or no connection to country Y except that A's parents probably were from Y.

Would INSEAD admission team evaluate A in the pool of country X or in country Y?

From what I read somewhere, A would have to chose which nationality he/she would like to go with.

Hello,

I have a query regarding the INSEAD application, particularly in the recommendations section.
Is it necessary to send in recommendation letters from people we are working with? Or can they be from our ex- professors too? And also, how much does the level/designation of that person matter?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

I have couple of questions regarding the application.

Section 5 - Current Work Experience : Currently I am not working. Should I fill details of most recent work experience in this section.

Section 14 - Supporting Documents - Transcripts: I have detailed marks card for each semester (Engineering) with grades for every subject and my degree, which has University Seal. Can I scan them and upload for evaluation or I will have to request a separate transcript from my university?

I have a question on Job Essay 1 of application and will appreciate your recommendations on how to proceed.

I have left my previous job in June 2016 (spent 4 years with the company) and currently work at our family-owned business as business development director.
Would you suggest I answer the Job Essay 1 question based on my current (not that extensive) job or rather base my answer on the job I had before?

Will appreciate your support!

Best regards,

Thank you.

Firstly, your recommenders will fill out an online questionnaire including a few essay type questions and a matrix in which they will need to evaluate you on a few elements (leadership, quantitative skills, etc.) - you can find these questions and the matrix online if you do a google search.

Secondly, it is more important that you get someone to recommend you who has worked closely with you and can speak to your strengths and weaknesses. Level/designation does not matter.

Make sure you work with your recommenders to develop your story!

Good luck!

Hi Camille,

I intend to apply for INSEAD at Round 3. I then have a question and would like to ask you for advice.

I passed my TOEFL test and I got 102. In fact, I did pass it twice:
First time I got 102 (R: 26; L: 27; S: 25; W: 24) and the second time I got 101 (R: 26; L: 26; S: 24; W: 25)

As the score required for INSEAD is 105, I wonder whether my score is considered and that I have a chance to get accepted with my application?

Plus, how INSEAD will interpret my score? It will take the highest score or the combination of the best score (if so, I got 103)

I thank you so much and I'm looking forward for your advice.

Hi Camille

My questions are-
1) A dental surgeon already having an MBA hospital management from Tier 3 college of India but is looking for an international MBA (a second MBA) after 5 years of work experience, what are the chances of getting shortlisted for INSEAD with that background?

2) If a candidate quit their job to pursue their passion (eg work in NGO/ Travel) for a year and then applied for INSEAD MBA would it be negative?

Overall Band: 7.5

Listening: 8.0
Writing: 6.5
Speaking: 7.0

Thanks.
