Awesome start to the day!!! I got a call yesterday morning from Antonio Magalhaes inviting me for the assessment day. It is such an amazing feeling to pass the first hurdle. A day I'd been waiting for since I decided to do my MBA. May 22nd at Lausanne. Anyone else???

How to haggle in a Morrocan souk?  [#permalink]

 FROM IMD Admissions Blog: How to haggle in a Morrocan souk? ​A friend told me about her vacation in Marrakesh a couple of months ago. She enjoyed the city but felt quite annoyed that she needed to haggle for everything: taking a "taxi," buying a bottle of mineral water, or shopping for souveniors in the souk. Price tags didn't exist, and she could never be sure how much to pay for things. Today we had our first negotiation class, and I felt that I had the answers for her.The objective of a negotiation should be to reach to an agreement for two parties considering the interests for both. Firstly one should know how much he wants to pay for the thing. Secondly one should try to get as much information about the other party as possible. As professor Luis Almeida Costasaid, "get to know literally everything about the other party, even the color of his socks!" Then try to come to a price between two parties' valuation prices. E voila! You're done. Negotiation is completed.In real life, it is not always as easy as it seems. But at least we learned the important principles to use in a negatiation. I definitely feel more confident now when I get to do some shopping in the Marrakesh souk in the future.StephanieNegotiation takes place every day here......and here....

 FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Module 2 As you will have read from my previous posts, Module 1 was really intense, with continuous training in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Operations, and Economics.  Module 2 has a very different flavour.  Now that we all have a firm understanding of the Module 1 topics, we are being exposed to Sustainability, the International Political Economy, Innovation, Strategy - and some more Finance!  So far, we've had one module around Negotiation (that Stephanie explained), and some initial modules around sustainability.  It's amazing to see the range and calibre of our professors, and their corporate and governmental backgrounds.Last week, we also continued our career services experience, with a half-day panel presentation from some key recruiters of IMD MBA graduates.  It's fascinating to see the range of options available to MBAs on graduation - all sorts of careers and functions that I'd never even heard of, let alone considered, and whilst some of them don't appeal, I'm definitely getting my eyes opened to some new opportunities.  In the context of our sustainability lecture, it's also interesting to think about the ethical implications of some careers and sectors (naming no names specifically...!!!). As ever, it's not all work in Lausanne; we had a party on Friday night, and there have been multiple trips to a nearby Jazz festival over the weekend.  As with Module 1, it seems like we'll be playing hard as well as working hard in Module 2!Nick.​

 FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Photo blog: March ​March was tough, with plenty of work to keep us busy and ensure many nights of limited sleep. Here are a few photos snapped during this busy period:Plenty of time was spent in the dungeons......and in lectures.We looked at how to use annual report information in interviews......and how not to embarrass ourselves in front of the media We had intensive discussions......and asked many questions......especially of our classmates' presentations.The days got longer and warmer......and so we were finally able to enjoy the sun, even if we could only relax for a few fleeting moments in our hectic schedule.

 FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Looking to the future! ​It's unbelievable that it's the end of April, and we are nearly one-third of the way through the IMD experience.  At this point, I'm reflecting back on time that we've had, and looking to the future.I have had a fantastic experience at IMD so far; I've never worked so hard in my life, and there have been points when I have thoroughly had enough (definitely at points during the integrative exercise), but I wouldn't change it for anything; I've met fantastic people, been inspired by our experienced (and sometimes eccentric!) lecturers, all the while living in this fantastic location by the lake.  Time is going past so quickly!And now, having put Module 1 behind us (but not yet in receipt of the exam marks!), the class is looking to the future.  One of the topics on the agenda at the moment is the International Consulting Project (ICP) element of the course.  This happens in September, and it's when we work for a company, helping them to solve an issue or problem that they are facing.  There are 15 possible projects, and we've been submitting our preferences this weekend.  The options are varied, and all interesting in their own way - so I can't wait to find out which one I've been assigned - watch this space! This weekend, I enjoyed some lovely drinks with my classmates down on Lake Geneva in the stunning sunshine, and today it's King's day in The Netherlands, so we're all wearing orange to class (an eyewatering sight!).  It was St George's Day last week (England's national day), but embarrassingly, whilst IMD were thoughful enough to put on a special lunch to celebrate, my British classmates and I hadn't even realised that it was on that date!  Today, I'm writing an essay for our International Political Economy class - it's about Israel and how the turmoil in the region has shaped the Israeli economy.  Try compacting such a contentious topic into 1200 words!Until next time,Nick.

Travelling from China to India in one day  [#permalink]

 FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Travelling from China to India in one day ​In the second module, we have a new subject called "International Political Economics (IPE)." We look at the microeconomics at country level. It is a subject that I am enjoying a lot at the moment.Within one class, we learn the economics of different countries from emerging market to the "new" emerging market. I discover many new things about a countries that I thought I knew pretty well already. The professor Carlos Braga is like a walking google. He knows all the histories and stories of the countries, not to mention also all the important figures, like GDPs, FDIs, etc.As part of the class, we need to prepare group presentations on certain topics and debate with each other. It is a very good way for me to learn and digest a new issue. Sometimes discussion can get really heated and people get so excited especially if their countries' issues were involved. It is the first time I feel that the diversity of our class is closedly connected to the subject of our learning.I am looking forward to discovering more "country issues" in the next couple of weeks!Stephanie

 FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Innovation ​This week was focused on innovation, and this time REAL innovation. We did more than just talking about it in class, but needed to create something with our own hands.Each group was given an assignment to find a solution to a problem. It was about a company in Africa which was facing challenges of selling their products. The environment was hard: heat, bad traffic, crowded streets, minimal sanitation, and low-income of people. The product was quite simple and it didn't seem difficult to find a solution.Our group met after lunch time for brain-storming and we started to physically build the object which would solve the company's probem. We were quite confident that we would finish latest 8pm. Everyone was using our upmost creativity and handicraft ability. We used scissors, duck tape, paper, carton, styropore, etc trying to build up something that was simple. I was quite happy that I had sharpened my handicraft skills with my daughtors. However, we overestimated our creativity and artistic ability. We had never thought that it could take us almost 10 hours to build an object not bigger than a cooler box.The next day, we submitted our final product for the competition. We were very proud of our work, and won the 3rd prize! We learned that innovation was not only about theory, but the techniques could be applied to create a real object. We had certainly fun as well working as a team! Well-done all of us!Stephanie

 FROM IMD Admissions Blog: Summer is here! ​Summer is here, and IMD the official start of the seasonisn’t determined by a meteorologist, or even the social calendar, but rather –eating lunch outside!  Today was ourfirst day of lunch on the grass, with gourmet ice-cream for dessert.  I had to try the ice cream(obviously just soI could report on the blog…) and it was fantastic, but my class participationin the ensuing lecture was fuelled by a sugar rush – I expressed vocal viewsabout my perspective on Turkey joining the EU (which is frankly not a majorinterest of mine without some sugar to inspire me!)Last week brought three pieces of good news, first of allwas that I was successful with all of my exams – I was so relieved to hearthis, as although I loved our accounting lecturer, I can’t say the same abouthis subject, and I was a bit apprehensive that I might have to spend the summerproving that I really can understand various types of cashflows.The second piece of good news was that I got theInternational Consulting Project (ICP) that I wanted.  The ICP is an opportunity for major companiesto hire 5 IMD MBA students for a 7 week period to help the company solve abusiness issue.  My project fitsperfectly with my two major career interests; banking and real estate.  I can’t wait.And finally – on Friday just as the class was tiring of theweek, we got a fantastic gift – a personalised Lego figurine of ourselves!  Thanks to our Innovation professor for thegift.Greetings from a summery Lausanne!​Nick
