Hi..do we have any statistics as to which intake is more competitive? Jan or Sept? Not sure if there is a significant difference in terms of number of application in these two intakes?

Cheers

There is a slight difference in the number of applications. It's in one of the INSEAD videos on youtube (can't link).

Please let's not ask these kind of questions here. No one knows. Be confident and submit the best application you can. Good luck

Quoting Caroline Edward's reply to similar question that was asked in recent live chat.

Quote:
Fortuna_Caroline: There is no difference in the level of competition Jan v Sept. In fact the school gets slightly more apps for Sept start but slightly lower yield (percentage accepting the offer) so the offer rate is the same.

Why does that imply the end of your journey, it's just mass marketing
