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.

Any recent admissions in the latter round?
This page has been a little silent for a while. I was dinged after a remote interview two weeks back :/

R1 Offer got.
Background : 5+ engineering in Manufacturing
GMAT : 650 Q49 V31 ( So I'm sure IMD is judging from the whole package or saw my potential)

Schedule
- invitation received 20 days after R1 deadline
- assessment day about 1 month after invitation
- a case will be sent 3~4 days before assessment
- offer got 10 biz days after assessment day
- must decide and send back acceptance in another 10 biz days

Assessment day
- personal interview : schedule could be the day before or the morning of assessment day. casuals questions such as tell me about yourself, biggest achievement , why is that, what's the key factor to bring the success, how your friend, colleague, family would say about your quality/defect, how many hours you sleep everyday
- impromptu presentation preparation : 30 minutes to read a case + hand writing presentation (4 minutes) , hand writing ones will be collected but you can *****keep some drafts and read questions first before starting the case
- Snack time
- group discussion( ~2-3 hrs) for the case sent previously : open discussion firstly to share each own vision and host will pose some questions, challenges from time to time. **** don't be offended or aggressive, just take it as a study group where you just share your visions and challenge each other instead of attacking or winning over something. Remember you are a TEAM and you like everyone at this stage.
- Impromptu presentation : ****4 MINUTES !!!!! RESPECT IT. Some started with a time line for general introduction before heading into the analysis and conclusions. There is no fixed way but it's important to hit the points and show your analytical skills and logics of thinking within the time frame. Find your own style and the methodology that suits you. Don't let others presentations influence yours. But listen carefully if some points you can use. After everyone finished the turn, a group discussion led by host, he would pose some interesting and challenging questions, pointing out our missing puzzles or superficial understanding
- snack time + dinner time
- Mingling time before master class
- Master class
- Mingling time + snack time

It was a long heavy and rich day which I supposed to be every single day during the program.
At the same event, you ll see who you are and how you position yourself in this program; meeting future candidates and professors as well as the ambiance that this program develops.
If it wasn't for this experience, I would be still doubtful about myself and about the program.
There are some other candidates with different interview process ( individual Skype with case , in campus individuel interview only without case )

Welcome to send PM if you need more infirmation or you just want to meet me or you got offers.
Wish you all luck :)

This was a great help Kyuh.. I have few things to ask you for the admission process .. if you can answer ... it will be greatly appreciated

1. How much time does IMD give at the time of giving admission offer to selected candidates for submission of their first Non-Refundable Fee Installment?
2. Transcripts are usually received from College/University in Sealed Envelope. Are we supposed to unpack it, scan and then upload at the time of Application?
OR
Can we upload Scans of our mark sheets at the time of application but later at the time of offer we have to share transcripts? How this process does go?
3. Are all scholarships announced at end of September or they are offered at the time of offering admission notice/call?
