Hi Santanu, this sounds like an error on their part, that they had failed to update the application from last year in its entirety. Contact admissions.

Thanks MBAPrepCoach.

I have emailed them now with the screenshot of the error on the form. But most likely the response will come on monday. Will wait till then.


Cheers!

Quote:
IESE Business School’s online application is now live for the 2017-2018 admissions season, meaning that the IESE recommendation questions are now available for applicants and their recommenders. Unlike other business schools’ applications and recommendation forms, IESE asks recommenders very basic identifying information and only requires two written responses (250-300 words in length).
2017-2018 IESE Recommendation Questions
Recommender Information
First Name
Last Name
Position or Title
School, Institution or Company
Relationship to applicant
Written Responses
1. How do the candidate’s performance, potential, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples. (300 words)
2. Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant’s response. (250 words)


According to clear admit, these are the questions. I cant vouch for their authenticity though. I couldnt find any questions on the website either. These questions look similar to what other top US schools ask, but I wonder why the word limit. Its as if they want the recommender to struggle with editing his/her earlier recommendations.

Is the deadline for submitting recommendations same as the application deadline i.e. 17 October? One of my recommenders is hospitalised, any leeway that the school gives in such scenarios?
