My wife and I attended the IMD on campus open day on the 3rd of April 2018, arriving a day early to explore the city of Lausanne where the campus is based. The day was very well organised, starting with a tour of the campus, presentation and Q&A of the programme followed by lunch with a few of the MBA students and finishing with the opportunity to sit in a strategy class.
Everyone was extremely helpful and the highlight for me was the chance to observe Professor Knut’s class; it was actually very interesting sitting in on that particular lecture having watched an earlier TED presentation of his on the same subject. It was a very dynamic class and encouraging to see how everyone collectively works together to nurture such a collaborative working environment.
I was also impressed by the diverse backgrounds of the participants and the industries in which they represent which lead to an informative discussion in class and the opportunity to learn from a different perspective.
I would highly recommend bringing your partner to the open day, the MBA programme is a life changing experience for both and the support offered by IMD to the families is very reassuring.
A special thanks to Suzanne for organising an extremely informative day. We both remain feeling very excited about the possibilities and extremely impressed by the school, faculty and students.
