Your profile looks awesome. enough and meaningful experience. Good enough GMAT.

Make a strong application and you should be fine.

one observation. you have entrepreneurship experience. Spanish language. Look for Spanish schools also (if you are not already looking).
All the best.




Thanks for the help !

As far as jobs are concerned. you ate gonna have to put a lot of effort yourself. in most of the European schools. It is the general trend that about only a 1/3rd candidates get placed within EU. rest are going around in APac, north America... and so on.

So even if you compare with INSEAD that itself doesn't guarantee a job. the candidate has to do most of the heavy lifting

Hi to all INSEAD applicants from TopDogMBA!

I wanted to make you aware of my blog at https://topdogmba.com.

I'm a current Sloan student with experience applying to various b schools - including a successful offer from INSEAD - and the ups and downs of the MBA application process. I've spoken with lots of Class of 2017 and 2018 applicants, and hope there's some useful information for you on my blog.

Thanks and good luck future Class of 2018! :)

Hi,

I have two queries :

1>I have done my engineering in Biotechnology but I can't see that in option.
2> I want to know till what time I can submit my application on 21st Sep (preferable IST time)
3> Is that correct that I can submit video interview after the deadline. I want to know what are the questions. And how should I prepare for that.

Thanks in advance,
abrakadabra

"You've been invited to an interview for the INSEAD MBA Programme"

That's the title of the email I got 20 min after I submitted my application. Then the catch... "Video interview"

>:(

1: can't help
2: i think its noon parisian time. But I would advise you to not wait for the day. Submiting by tomorrow will be great. The video can be done upto a week after you have received the link
3: That's the big mistery. Hope the ones who are through it can share some insight soon.

Goodluck to you!!
