On the application form, what is everyone filling for the field "Number of staff supervised" - Does it have to include direct reports only or staff supervised on a project? Problem with the latter is it varies across projects. So unsure of what should go in that section.

Thanks

I supervise teams of 3-15. I've been putting 8 because it doesn't allow a range. Then in the resume, I've spoken to the 15-person team and the 3-person so you can pretty easily see that there's a range.
hope this helps!

I'm curious about this as well. What about people that report to the people who report to you? What about people who report to you but are in a different locations/countries?

For example, if Jeff Immelt were applying would he put 300k employees? Or the 15 or whatever people he "supervises" on a day to day basis?

to your first question, i think you put down ALL reports, direct or sub-direct, on your application.
to your second question, if jeff immelt were applying, he would give hbs admissions a call and say "hi this is jeff immelt."
