FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Emotionally numbered, analytically sentimental
​I need to apologize for my long silence in the blog. I must
acknowledge, that my IMD experience goes far beyond schooling, projects or class
experience. When I packed my suitcases to come here six months ago, I thought I knew
everything I put there. However, just like in books of Milorad Pavic, all of a
sudden I found the whole bunch of stuff. In my childhood,
clumpy sea shells with loud wave illusions were popular to keep at home,
and to surprise visitors from time to time. And here, in my virtual sea shell
collection, of which I personally had no idea up to date, the first specimens
were rather small and negligible, while the last one almost deafened me.
Hopefully, that was the biggest one… I want to say "Thank you" to my classmates and all the people at the IMD, and to my friends, who helped me regulate the volume of noise and hear other beautiful sounds of the world around. We all are here, at the IMD MBA, the best place to learn
and explore ourselves in leadership from the business context. Those looking to come, just be prepared for the
internal journey, too. Putting your house in order might help find the better
version of yourself in many areas of your existenceJ

This week at school
was unbelievably full of learning discoveries, accomplishments and light sadness,
as we completed finance and strategy courses, and a class on sustainability. I
didn’t notice, when exactly the financial terms and concepts became a regular
part of my thinking and communication, but yesterday, when I listened to my classmates
making presentations on various financially-related topics of versatile
businesses from all over the globe, I was amazed to admit, that we were a
completely different group of business people, juggling with sophisticated topics,
asking each other tricky questions and going back and forth from finance to
economics, from marketing to leadership, from communication to negotiations etc. (not to mention quality of slides and speakers!). My heart was almost bursting, when we were applauding to our finance professor
Nuno Fernandes. I also want to thank our strategy professor Mikolaj Piskorski,
who taught us cybernetics of strategic thinking and made us dig very deep
beyond trivial in searching for real answers. Debates in the class were very
hot, while the level of respect to individual opinions together with unexpectedly
brilliant navigation of the class discussion by Misiek sometimes brought us
from decision-making to realistic futurism.

Well, despite bitterness of farewell, the thought, that we belong to the IMD community, and that the
door for us will be open, keeps me looking forward to the new paragraphs with
IMD and beyond. So, no time for sentiments, exams are just around the corner!

Till soon,

Aysylu

Hi Guys,

Can you share what are the questions which are asked to the recommenders ? I am planning to apply and want to know the questions my referees need to fill out so that i can give them some suggestions ..


Hi

Questions are normally not available for an applicant at any MBA application.
You give email of your recommender, IMD will send a link, and the recommender will follow the link to fill in the form. Sometimes applicants would fill in the form themselves if the recommender allows.

I believe questions will be general, something like greatest achievement, positive AND negative things about applicant.


Hi Vibis,

Thanks for the reply. I just wanted if anyone was aware of the questions so that i can ask my referees to start preparing them and also help them with some points which they might want to add in their answers.

Also, are you going to join IMD or are you considering other schools as well ?

Regards,

Hi,

Don't worry that much about references. At the assessment day they would not ask questions regarding the references, and if you are sure in the referees, it should be ok.

I already paid 15K francs, so I am definitely in :)

FROM IMD Admissions Blog: This one is for Nuno!
Classes are done, so much happened in the last couple of days and exam preparation time started.

One of the most memorable event was our last Finance class with the mighty professor Nuno Fernandes.

I would like to take this space to thank him once more on behalf of all my colleagues for the unforgettable classes he gave us, the fun and sometimes tough learning experience, the eye opening speakers he brought in, but most of all, for his genuine care about our learninf and about us, the people behind the students.

Here are a few pictures from our last calss with Nuno, some of the presentations we gave and our traditionnal class picture.

Thank you for everything Nuno!

FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Strategy masters
​With all classes finishing, our strategy class has also come to an end.

I might have been slightly presomptuous with a title like "Strategy masters", but I can defnitely say that, thanks to Misiek, our view on strategic thinking will never be the same as it was before this outstanding class. Thank you for engaging us in class and coming back to each one of us to push his reasonning to the extreme in order to make sure we understand the implications of every strategy we discussed.

Thank you Misiek for the great lievely classes!

I have seen some of very negative and aggressive opinions on IMD on the web. However, I know several alumni of recent years and, of course, current students, and I don't think there is some apocalypses at the school at all. Those who I know are happy with the school.

Yep I think within 6 months few people still did not get the job. The problem is, since the class is only 90, the relative figure is a lot, like 5-10%. Don't know exact numbers, just rumours here and there.

In my personal case I don't see a problem in that.

Yeah it sort of caught me off guard a bit because based on IMD's website, typically speaking they would need 3 to 6 weeks before sending out invitations.
My assessment day is scheduled on July 1st in Lausanne.

I received my invitation a week after application, so it's quite normal for IMD to call few days after deadline

I heard somewhere that the applications number has declined sharply this year. May be it explains the fast response giving the limited resources of IMD admission team, they are few now. Since the departure of the old team two years ago, IMD experienced tough times, last year I guess the applications number received was 320 based on Forbes, or so. The number for this year seems to be much less. IMD has to do something. It loses excellent candidates for INSEAD, LBS.

FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Going back to the future
All good things must come to an end (cliche overload!!!!). And so do our core classes. More late nights, more sharing some more caring and in the end of it all some more exams marking the end of our academically intense period at IMD. When we came to IMD in January we had traded our suits and ties for backpacks and ​tees. How happy we were to not bother matching the colour of our belt and shoes. But as the "student" period draws to a close and as we prepare for our "executive" engagements, the formal attire is back. Slick looking guys and gals are all set to make a quiet but impactful entry back into the business World.

 No we are not done here yet! We still have a while to go before we can claim to be a part of the esteemed IMD Alumni community. But our remaining time here will be spent outside the classroom, in the midst of executives. Not just listening to them but also engaging them in a dialogue on key business topics. End of this month we will all be headed to one of the three major European cities, Zurich, London, Munich, where we will present our work on various topics concerning business and human challenges to executives from top companies. This will be followed by discovery expeditions around the globe.

So in a way the student life comes to an end one more time. It does make me a bit nostalgic to realize that all 90 of us may not be sitting in the same class again until Graduation but then I am also proud of the fact that I will forever remain in the company of these exceptional 89 people and many more.

But for now it is time to go back to the future
