The assessment day experience is quite unique. While it may seem arduous to travel to Lausanne and do an entire day of interviews, the experience gives you a great sense of what it is like to be an IMD MBA. It is the day that I fell in love with the school.

The day typically starts before the actual day. I was on a WhatsApp group with the other attendees and we all decided to have dinner together the night before the assessment day. I had the opportunity to meet a number of my future classmates who hailed from all over the world. It was nice to go into the assessment day already familiar with the other attendees.

On my assessment day, I spent most of the day doing the following:

Standard Individual Interview - Why MBA, why IMD, what do you want to do in the future, etc. This is to get a sense of your competence, personality, and motives. This is done individually.

Case Study in group - We were given a case study prior to the assessment day to prepare for the assessment day. We had an IMD professor who moderated the case and, as a group, we had to drive the case to a conclusion. This is to get a sense of your competence, your ability to be a team player, and your ability to keep your composure.

Role Play interview - You sit with one other role play participant and an assessor (both from IMD admissions). They will create a life like scenario and you have to think on your feet to solve a problem. They tell you the situation and you have a brief period of time to prepare a plan of attack. My role play was on a high performing employee who refused to train junior employees. I thought I knew the answer to the case and quickly found that my assumptions were wrong. This is to get a sense of your competence, your ability to maintain control in dynamic situations, how you handle mistakes of your making, and how quick you are on your feet.

Outside of interviews you will get the chance to attend a class and have lunch at IMD’s Restaurant. They usually pair you with a current IMD MBA for lunch. I greatly enjoyed my experience, despite the intensity. Lausanne is a beautiful city and IMD’s campus is amazing.

I hope this helps. Good luck to all those who were chose to attend the assessment day.
