Whoa! As per forum stats, there are around 20 applicants applying to IE this year but we can see hardly any discussion in the thread. C'mon guys, share your admission updates, experiences during the application process, opinion about IE, etc. with your fellow applicants on this platform.

Congrats avpk729 and thank you for posting your decision update on the forum. I can't comment on EU job market, but if you are looking for financial aid, here is a video posted by IE, describing their funding options.

Interview Report:
It was taken by an Admission committee member. She was friendly and understanding, in short, it was a pleasure to talk.

Some questions:
1. Walk me through your resume.
2. hobbies.
3. If you can go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
4. Some question about my current job
5. Elevator-pitch to Donald Trump
6. current events and its impact on the world.
7. how was moving to Estonia from India? will there be similar challenges to move to Spain?
8. If you leave everything now and start a business what would it be, what will be investment and business plan
9. How many beer bottles will there be in your city on a Friday-evening?
10. 20 years from now there is an article on you in a magazine. what will be the title and why?
11. what will your friend say about you?
12. what will someone who don;t like you say?

All the best to other interview takers.

I had my interview during the week and it was really tough....More questions about my personality, strength and weakness as it applies to IE personality and IE MBA personality. I thought, I would have more control of a Skype interview than physical one... But it was really intense and gave me an idea of the programme intensity. Hoping for a quick and positive feedback.

Hi all -

I have applied to IE and been through two interviews. I'm hoping to hear feedback regarding admission this week.. my second interview was November 16th, so this is the third week. I'm happy to answer any questions re: interview process.

Hi Cmleibold

Congrats on reaching this stage.
Could you briefly walk me through your interview and why you think a second one is lined up?

Wish you all the best

The first interview was via Skype with the Los Angeles office (I'm from the Western US) and was very straightforward. Questions like tell me about yourself were followed by a walkthrough of my resume. We had a brief talk about why IE, why now, and my career goals. The interviewer was very personable and easy to talk to. This interview was conversational in nature and flew by.

The second interview was via Skype with an admissions officer located on-campus in Madrid. This interview was more strenuous. He wanted some more info regarding my education and a small gap I have between my AA and BA degrees. He also dug deeper into my work experience and wanted a rundown of day-to-day duties I fulfill. He gave me a case to work out that involved production capabilities and demand and asked me to provide a recommendation for the fake client. We finished with him asking me how many wheels were at the local airport.

From what I've been told, the second interview was necessary due to my limited work experience. Both interviewers gave me very positive feedback during the interviews and I felt like they both went well, even the more strenuous second one. I think my work experience gives me a tough road to climb for an admit, but I'm looking forward to hearing from them with a decision.

Wow, that sounds like a solid vetting. Was it easy for you to visit Madrid for the second interview ? Personally I might not have made the trip, if I could avoid it.
Kudos on the experience. Do wish you the best.

I'm sorry, my wording was a little bit off when I first wrote my post. Both interviews were conducted via Skype, so I haven't traveled to the campus yet. I've amended the post to reflect that.

During my application phase I really needed a way to visualize the campus so that I could imagine being there.
This below video helped me get a sense of IEs urban campus

How long did it take them to get back to you with a decision after your interview? I'm at three weeks right now and am wondering if I should send them an e-mail looking for an update

They took about little over a week for me.
Emailing them might be a good idea.
