FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Orchestrating Winning Performance
​This marks the first years that IMD's MBA's have been given the spotlight at the OWP event, providing us the opportunity to share our ideas, present our skills and add to the overall value of the conference. It was a special activity for us to do as a group, testing our own abilities to orchestrate winning performance within the MBA team. Having been given the vision from our program director, we split into presentation and marketing teams. People took up leadership in liaisoning with conference staff, designing marketing collateral, perfecting presentation delivery and organizing networking events with conference participants. After our last set of presentations this morning, I believe the class feels proud having started a new tradition.

With our new program director this year, IMD is working to leverage even more the resource it has being the global leader in executive education. This has meant more networking options for the class and more exposure to company leaders on continous basis. With just two weeks left until summer break we already have company presentations from leading industry, consulting and financia firms on campus. I know when we return in late July, that we will be well prepared for a more intensive job search.

Tough Choices  [#permalink]

FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Tough Choices
​We are all at a point where we are trying to narrow down choices
for the next phases of our lives, making tough choices on where we want to be
this time next year. I just watched a TedTalk on tough choices and how the
beauty of these choices is that they allow us to define who we are as
individuals.

This made me reflect on the many entries that I have written
on diversity in the class and how this has, at times, led to conflict, to
compromise and to growth. Combining my previous line of thought with the idea
that tough choices define who we are, it made me think that in the end we are
all only so diverse as a group of 90 can be whom have all made the tough choice
to come to IMD.

Perhaps, our conflicts have not simply been a measure of our
differences, but also of our similarities. Furthermore, it is possible that the
similarity which we each share having made the individual choice to each be at
IMD this year is just as powerful a component of who we are compared to any
other experience of difference that we have experienced this year.​

not only the wait is painful, but silence is much more worse, some how year on year people are getting engrossed into devices or becoming more lazy :roll:

Hi All,

Glad to see some movement in the group. I attended the info session in Dubai lat week with few alumnis. Their words were quite encouraging and motivating. I would like to summarize their point of view about the admission process for your understanding:

- The adcom will evaluate all the parameters equally than dinging one by focussing only on his/her nationality, GMAT score, area of expertise etc.
- The school is looking for leadership potential, not for super strong management experience.
- IMD's assessment is quite different from that of other B-schools. So, just be yourself and tell your strory effectively. Any false statements in your application will be exposed later.
- Team playing ability is a crucial factor in deciding an applicant's acceptance decision to adcom. Being shy and oversmart on the assessment day will simply go against each applicants irrespective of his/her leadership potential, international exposure and career accomplishments.
- Develop an understanding about how to solve business cases. Ther will be two cases to be solved and presented (alone & gropu) on the assessment day.

Hope thses will help you guys. Waiting for that "very special " call from IMD.

two cents worth of words from my side,
one of the Alumni told me that he asked IMD to distribute his contact email to other participants to meet up before the assessment day.
this will help the group ease into group sessions.

FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Summer beckons
Summer break is so close we can almost smell it. After a grueling
but extremely rewarding first half of the program, the whole class seems ready
for a (real) vacation. One more day of group work tomorrow, one last session
with my PDE analyst this weekend, an end-of-module class bonding trip to France,
and voila! Off we go on our summer breaks!

It is funny how the pace and structure of the year has had
so much impact on my life. Early on the program was very structured, and so was
I. It was a struggle at first for me to get organized and stay on top of the
coursework. After a couple of weeks of dealing with the heavy workload, I
started to get the hang of it, and really maximize every minute of each day.
Once classes wrapped up, suddenly we found ourselves in a totally unstructured
environment, where I had significant assignments to take care of, but no
directions on how to go about them, and now I feel much more disorganized.

My classmates have some very nice summer plans lined up,
with lots of travel to exotic places. Many of them organized trips to their
home countries, offering themselves as tour guides. I am sure there will be some great stories when we are all back together at the end of July. For me, I am just excited
to spend some quality time with my family and catch up on some sleep!
