Hi,
I am working as a Sr business Analyst with an Investment bank, and all my experience is in BFSI sector . I have close to 10 years of experience. I have done Btech , and I have passed all the 3 levels of CFA, although I don't hold the charter. I have decent school and colleges grades. I managed to score 740 in my GMAT. I wish to apply for INSEAD 1 year program, although I don't have onsite international exposure. I have led international teams, working for the banks .

Can you please advise on the profile for INSEAD.Does it make sense to apply with 10 years of experience?
Any other suggestions will be helpful.

Regards
Prakhar


prakharkaushik I realize this is a bit counter intuitive, but it's not permitted to do profile evaluations in this thread, however copy and paste this and email me (email option for PM) and I would be happy to respond with my thoughts. I recommend you also post this in Ask Admissions Consultants and you will get input from a variety of consultants, most likely.

ashutosh987 I'm afraid you can't request profile evaluations in the school threads. Please post this in Ask Admissions Consultants. You'll get more responses there, too.

Hello,
I had a question regarding campus selection . Insead gives option to select either Fountainbleau or Singapore as campus. If either of the seats of campus seats is filled ,would the applicant be considered for seat in other campus or be placed on waiting list?

Can any of the current students or alumni please advise on this?

Hiya - on their website they mention that the admission decision is reached without knowing your campus preference. Only after reaching this decision do that allocate students to locations. Said another way: your campus choice does not affect your chances for admission.

Hi Everyone,

Here're details of applicants with interview invites in R1. I guess invitation deadline was 21st Apr so we are not expecting any invites now?

Good luck to all who are preparing for interviews. Here you can read interview debriefs submitted by previous applicants. Don't forget to submit your debrief once your interview is done. https://gmatclub.com/reviews/business_school/insead-24
