IMD or Cambridge? [#permalink]

Hello all,

First thanks for the work done by all the community, it has been really helpfull in order to reach a good gmat score!

I would like to get some inputs to take a good decision regarding a complex situation.

I am 32 (turning 33 this year), I am an engineer, I work as a Supply Chain Manager and I have some entrepreneurship experiences. The purpose of my MBA is to create a great international network and give me strong skills regarding strategy, accounting, finance, venture investments and long-range company management. All that in order to act, in the future, as an entrepreneur or corporate entrepreneur.

I am applying to several MBAs, including IMD (January 2017 intake) and Cambridge Judge (September 2017 intake). Due to the different starting dates, if get accepted to IMD I wouldn't even let a chance to Cambridge (as its application process starts later...). The tricky question is the following: what would be the best? Not apply to IMD and keep Cambridge as a priority for Sept17, or apply to IMD for Jan17 and forget Cambridge if accepted in Switzerland?

It would be great to receive your inputs based on the schools experience, reputation and fit with the small description given above.

Thanks a lot!

Lieon

You haven't even got in yet. Id say don't even think about it and apply to imd if you want to go there, and if you get accepted then decide if you want to apply to Cambridge.

Not to be a bad omen, but if you get rejection from one of them or both, the school has already made the decision for you...

I agree with the above, there is no decision...until there is a decision. No problem to start thinking through how you would prioritize things now but keep it simple. I would say I always recommend to my clients that to avoid applying to a school that you would not be excited to attend. So keep that in mind as you map out your application strategy. Both are great programs so hopefully you can secure admission to at least one of these programs.

Hi all,

I am in a very similar predicament as the topic of this post albeit I have had an offer from IMD but in the midst of applying to Cambridge. As I am a lawyer working in the energy/infra space and want to change function rather than sector (remain in energy or maybe switch to tech) - is it more advisable for me to give up IMD and go to Cambridge instead. Or do the rankings justify going to IMD?

Need to keep in mind the high cost of going to IMD and Switzerland!

Thanks!

My advice is to reach out current students in Cambridge to see how the career service perform under the Brexit. The situation is still very unclear if you follow the economic news in Bloomberg, CCN money...etc. In same way, you should contact others in IMD to see the job climate for internationals. You do not want to spend money (high or low) in vain.

Good luck
