hey guys!
its been almost 3 weeks since my IE interview (Sep 2016 Entry Batch) and i haven't received any mail from the college. I am worried and it seems its going to be a "no" now that they have not yet reverted.....please advise what should i do


why dont you reach out to them and maybe check your spam mail?


Hey All! Finally got the confirmation mail from IE and m so relieved. But I am still not sure if IE is the best choice. I mean I've heard about IE's Diversity, large alumni base and Entrepreneurship but m still skeptic about the placement scenario. From what i can understand after going through numerous web pages is that Job Prospects are really bad in Europe. And if this is the case then it hardly matters whether you are graduating from INSEAD, IE, IMD, LBS or HEC! I am still not sure whether i should join IE or not.


Hi Brijeshtarunn,

So are you going for IE ? I am in the same boat. Placement of IE is really worrying.

Regards

Hi

I have been admitted as well but I have decided to turn down the offer, as after proper research, IE IMBA is definitely not worth the investment as the placement is almost non existent. With only 10 percent job placements and majority of students returning home after the MBA, the ROI is NIL, that is if you are going into this MBA with the hopes of job placement as you are using part of your own savings to fund the programme.

The majority of students are sponsored by their organisations, and government, and for these students it would be worth it as they would be guaranteed higher positions when they return to their jobs at their home countries. But otherwise, it's just not worth the investment.

I feel sorry for those students that pursue this programme by mortgaging their future in student loans, and return to their home country affter grad.

jsamaroo10 Where did you get that 10% placement stat? According to their career placement report 92% of grads had a job within 3 months... If the stat was truly 10% I doubt IE would be ranked as it is right now... It actually just got ranked #4 in their latest report... Europe's situation is getting better, and Spaín's economy has been recovering fast... I am going to IE Sept 2016, I just turned down offers from IESE and ESADE last week.

Hi

I have spoken to current graduates, and they even agreed with me that the 92% stats are misleading, as the majority of that percentage represents students who have acquired new jobs in their home country, as opposed to abroad. IE is ranked high due to their diversity and learning experience of course, but in terms of job placement in Europe, they are far off.

I was also accepted for the Sep 2016 intake, but the fact that majority of students can't find employment in Europe after grad, just is not worth the investment. Europe now has one of the highest unemployment rates right now in the World and they are still recovering from the recession.

I mean, it is not impossible to achieve a good job abroad after grad, but it is very difficult and given the price tag, it should not be as difficult as it is.

Agreed on the unemployment situation in Europe, but where did you get the 10% stat? There's a huge difference from 10 to 92 and though talking to some people definitely brings some insights I would caution putting stats here without any specific foundation to them.. Especially since you may scare people from applying or attending a particular school.. Just my two cents.. Good luck with everything!

I looked up the linkedin profiles of few alums in India & Africa and all of them seemed to have returned to their respective countries. I doubt all of them would have done this out of choice.
How is ESADE's placement compared to IE ? I spoke to an ESADE alum and he told that most of the candidates don't plan & network well in the first year and without an internship opportunity it's very difficult to land a job in Europe.

That's why IESE and ESADE score over IE in terms of placements.

What do you guys have to say ?

I'm not saying that the IE IMBA is useless..It is indeed an excellent programme for learning and professional development, however if you decision to enrol is based highly on your chances to attain a job internationally after the completion of the programme, then it will not be worthwhile for you.

I'd like to get some opinions on IE vs Duke. I have been accepted to IE's September intake as well as Fuqua for 2016 and would like to hear your perspective on which to choose. I am from the US, so I recognize the Duke brand carries a lot of weight here, but I also think that there's value in having an international MBA experience. Living in Madrid and having that sort of transformative experience excites me more than Durham, but ultimately I want to live in the US. I come from healthcare and am primarily interested in entrepreneurship/BD/consulting.

Also of note, Duke and Ie's salary numbers seem to be comparable, while Duke is about 40% more cost than IE. Opinions?

Got Admitted into the Jan 2016 IMBA IE Business school intake but will defer it till Sep 2016. Applied about 5 weeks ago and got my phone interview 2 weeks ago, acceptance email 1 week ago.
Anyone else in here starting in Sep 2016 ?


We are in the same boat. Got in for Jan intake but I wish to avoid the pressure to get funding and visas, so i opted for Sept 16 intake.



I got in for the September intake 2016, but I really wanted to try to apply to INSEAD for the January 2017 intake. Thing is that IE requires I decide before February 23 and my GMAT test date isn't until February 10th. I don't know what to do. I'm afraid IE doesn't have the recognition that INSEAD does.

Hi All,

I had my IE Interview with an alum (Face to Face) in the 1st week of December. They hadn't gotten back to me after that so I sent them a mail requesting my application status.
Now I have a Skype Interview next week with someone from Madrid.
Is this a good thing? I had heard that IE usually has only 1 interview for the Admission Process.
Also, if someone has gone through a second interview, can you please give me some pointers/tips.

Thanks a lot!

Hello everybody!! :)

I got an interview shortlisting mail today but the date is yet to be decided. It would be very helpful if people who have completed their interviews could share their experience.

Also, are these blind interviews??

Cheers!!
