Guys,

I have been invited for the assessment day after applying in R2. I would like to know is it ok if I chose singapore as my location because it will be easier to travel from where I am situated.


Congrats Mahanshu!

When were you notified? By email I assume?

I applied in R2 as well, and am anxiously awaiting a response.

Good Luck.

Hi All,
I have been invited for assessment day in New York on 21st May. Given IMD’s essay and interview process has changed since last year, can any body help to give me some pointers about the interview , case study and group work. I am curious about the interview more as to what type of interview it is , casual or deep Dive. Any help will be appreciated.

Hi LekkerBru, how was it? Can you provide a debrief? I imagine you have heard back already, they are pretty quick.

I attended the assessment day on 21st in NYC . It was an Amazing experience. There are basically three sections. Interview, an impromptu question with a 2 minute speech and a group presentation on a case study. There was a surprise excercise also which I will not reveal. But the bottom line is assessment day is very informal and like another day at work. Carry your best through out the day because you are being observed full day. No need to prepare hefty case studies. Its pretty straight forward. They look for your team work. Just be natural and show who you really are. For the surprise excercise, all I can say is that it is fun. Make sure you and your team have a strategy. You will get to learn a lot also on the assessment day. The best part of the assessment day was the generic discussion after the excercise where others would give feedback or you get a chance to reflect. IMD is all about self-reflection and that’s what they promote and encourage you during the assessment
Day.

I found this essay very interesting. Which programs people are listing here?

MBAPrepCoach, Any expert advice on how to handle this essay? If we mention highly ranked programs such as INSEAD, will it send a signal to adcom that I am treating IMD as a safety school and unlikely to attend if I get admits from my top choices?

Hi Narenn, so sorry for the late response here, just missed this and going through my notification inbox.

In this question, you want to pick adjacent programs to some degree: similar ranking and like IMD, leadership development oriented. So maybe another school that has a well-developed personal deep dive course(s.) Or has an industry focus more so than consulting or finance.

This speaks to the core of what differentiates IMD. I do think it might be a mistake to put down INSEAD here because if you have the right stats, they know they will probably not "win" you if they choose you. Also, INSEAD is really quite a different program from IMD and so this will undermine the sincerity of your application.

They want to know: if I invite you to my party will you come, or will you make an excuse last minute and I will have to scramble to invite more guests? IMD wants to pick the "best" applicants but also the applicant that think IMD is the best as well; their first choice.

I recommend everyone do a fair bit of research on IMD to get clear on what IMDs value proposition is specifically for them and their career; probably should be some aspect of personal development, introspection, and leadership. And how industry focus. How they would benefit from a simulation-type learning environment.

A good place to start would be the interview with the Dean by Touch MBA. http://touchmba.com/tag/imd/
