Hello well well,

Can you detail your IMD assessment experience as well as give us some tips for preparation?

Best,[/quote]
Best advise I can give is be yourself and do not try to fake anything as IMD likes the genuine you.As this is the only way you would also know if IMD is meant for you as well.

In terms of the day itself, everyone has their individual schedule.My tip for the day as below

1) Impromptu Case study - be to the point and try attack the root cause of issue in the case.for group exercise be collaborative and try come to conclusion on time with proper group representation.

2) For interview be yourself and answer honestly everything as after all they liked you so no need to fake answer anything.Just tell your story.

3) For preshared case study - Try contribute productively by bringing some intresting insights based on your proffessional ex with respect to the context of case. A must not to do is interrupt anyone while they are talking. This situation is simulation for the how your group would be like in actual class. So try make this engaging and intresting. It shows what you can bring to the class.

4) Role play - pretty straight forward, use your instincts and avoid arguments.Stay professional and follow the rules.

So,gist is enjoy the day as it wont last long and have a gud time tasting delicious lunch. Try not eat the desserts too much as its hard to resist but they make you feel sleepy specially when you gave case to discusd in afternoon.

Have fun and good luck!

Hi Shiridip,

Glad to share my assessment day experience. Please refer below for the details. Please let me know in case you have any further queries. Happy to help!

My assessment day was on 8th August 2017. The group included 7 of us (including me) – 3 Indians, 1 Pakistani, 1 Swedish (Indian origin), 1 Peruvian and 1 Russian.
We were asked to report at 8 am in the morning at the main reception in the IMD building. We were greeted by an MBA recruitment officer, who then showed us around the campus for about 30 minutes and also briefed us about the schedule for the rest of the day. We all were to go through various same exercises, though our individual schedules varied in terms of order of these exercises.
My day started with a personal interview. It lasted for about 45 mins and was a pleasant conversation. Interviewer had gone through my application thoroughly and had prepared detailed notes. She had very specific questions about my experience, professional journey, my strengths, weaknesses, my future goal and why I think I was a good fit for the same. In the end, she allowed me some time to ask questions, if I had any.

Post this interview, each one of us was given an impromptu 2 page case study to read and analyze. Each one of us was given 35 minutes to read the case and prepare few slides (on A4 sheets with colored pens). Then we were all asked to present our slides for 4 minutes. Each participant presented to the entire group of participants as well as adcom members. After our individual presentations were over, we were asked to prepare an additional question as a group. We were given 20 additional minutes for this, followed by 5 minutes of presentation time.
Following this, all of us were given a brief situation to prepare for a role play. We were given 20 minutes to prepare for a 3 minute discussion in a role play format. The role play was enacted by one of the adcom members, who seemed to be quite aggressive in pushing her point. But, I managed to engage her into a discussion. Post the 3 minute role play, another adcom member, who was an observer in the room, shared her feedback with me on how she thought I handled the situation.
After this all of us broke for lunch. During lunch, each one of us were tagged to an existing student from the current batch. They engaged in general discussion but also asked why we wanted to do an MBA, why we had chosen IMD, which other schools we had applied to, etc.
Post lunch, we discussed the pre-read case study with prof. Sean Meehan, who is going to take over as Head of the MBA program in January. He opened the case discussion asking very specific questions on various aspects. The discussion went on for about 90 minutes. This was followed by a Q&A session with him where he encouraged us to ask him questions about the program.
Post this, we were asked to attend an actual class with the current students. The class was on using advanced analytics in Finance. The day concluded post the class around 5:30 PM.

Waiting to hear back from them! Fingers crossed!

Hey,

Can we have a more detailed chat to understand your profile from a fit perspective - please PM me. In my opinion and experience, an admit is a combination of lot of factors.. your past profile, growth, responsibilities managed and the overall quality of your application. I'm a 2018 student - starting at IMD in 2 weeks and will be happy to share my perspective.

Welcome all IMD MBA applicants!

Use this platform to discuss your application for the IMD MBA 2018 batch.

Please add IMD MBA to your MBA timeline so that the applicant stats displayed in the first post reflect true picture of admissions. While adding the program, MAKE SURE you are setting it for graduation year, i.e. 'Class of 2018' if you apply for IMD within the deadlines of 2017.

Hi, I was wondering if there a similar discussion thread for Jan 2019 Intake? It would help immensely to connect with current students and fellow applicants, especially given all the changes to application form this time.

Thanks!
