INSEAD - Admission Trends Over 5 Years!!



We decided to analyse our accumulated forum data of INSEAD applicants to determine admission trends and acceptance chances of applicants. We have tried to determine acceptance chances by GMAT score, Intakes, industry, etc. and compare performance of GMAT Club applicants with overall applicant pool. The data used for this analysis is self-reported, so it's advised to use findings of this analysis only to get idea of admission scenario at INSEAD. Don't presume that these findings will hold true all the time.

We would welcome any comments, opinions, suggestions or anything else that you might have to say about the findings of this analysis.

Avg Work Experience60 - 726760 - 7271726866667264
Average Age29292929292829282928




January and September Intakes: Applicants and Acceptance Rates



  • Both the acceptance rate and number of applicants are higher for Sept intake.
  • R2 and R3 have highest probability of acceptance than other rounds.
  • R1 is greatest round in terms of number of applicants.


Sample Size: 1907 Applicants
Image

Image





Acceptance Rate by GMAT Score



  • As expected, acceptance chances increase with higher GMAT scores; however, this holds true only upto 730 level, after which we can see some decrease in the acceptance chances of applicants with GMAT scores 740 and 750. We observed similar trend during the analysis of ISB applicants as well.


Sample Size: 838 Applicants
Image




Acceptance Rates of Different Age Groups GMAT Score



  • Greatest portion of INSEAD's applicant pool is coming from 28-30 age group and this group also has highest chance of admission. This is not very surprising because average age of INSEAD's incoming class has always stayed around 28 - 29.


Sample Size: 358 Applicants
Image




Acceptance rates by Countries



  • For this analysis, we have considered only those countries that have relatively higher number of INSEAD applicants on forum. We have not chosen the countries with less than 15 applicants.
  • We have also shown the difference between average GMAT of overall applicant pool of a specific country and average GMAT of admitted students of that country.


Sample Size: 610 Applicants
Image




Acceptance rates of applicants from various industries



  • The first chart - line chart - shows acceptance rates of applicants from various industries and the pie chart next to it shows industri-wise allocation of applicants.


Sample Size: 784 Applicants
Image

Image




Incoming Class of INSEAD



  • Here we have done industry-wise classification of students admitted between 2012 and 2016 to see representation of various industries in an average INSEAD MBA class.


Sample Size: 784 Applicants
Image


As I said earlier, we welcome your views, counter-views, suggestions, etc on the analysis. Thank you!

Hi everyone - as the holidays approach, it will be a busy time, but represent a moment to breathe for others. I would encourage you to reach out to INSEAD alums via advanced search function on Linked In (or other means at your disposal.) Choose people who you share something in common with, or are working in your target role/industry. A good way to go about this is to put together a list of questions for them to answer, but also give them the option (and some times) to answer them via Skype or on the phone. Make note of any gems from the conversation that you could include in your essays or interview.

If you have free time over the holidays, make a plan to brush up on that 3rd language.

Given the intensity of the INSEAD program, don't wait to test on it at the end. You will be busy taking exams every few weeks!

For those of you who will be around family this month - ask about their ideas on this question if you feel it would be helpful.
Get the ball rolling on the self-reflection and introspection - this process is about doing the research (on you, goals, school) and then writing the report.
Getting the research done now will make the rest of this much easier.

Give a candid description of yourself (who are you as a person), stressing the personal characteristics you feel to be your strengths and weaknesses and the main factors which have influenced your personal development, giving examples when necessary (500 words)
