IMD MBA application form
The 7 short essays are your chance to show us how you communicate your ideas and how you contribute to the world in which you live, whilst also highlighting:
Address for supporting documents
Please send your transcripts, diplomas, signed certification and passport photos to this address:
Ch. de Bellerive 23
CH - 1007 Lausanne
We inform you if we would like to meet you for an interview within 6 weeks after the application deadline to which you applied. Normally, we will then confirm if you have been selected for the following year's class within two weeks of your interview.
Letters of recommendation
Your three confidential letters of recommendation give us an extra assessment of your overall personality, your business achievements and your leadership capabilities.
The recommendation forms provided in the online IMD MBA application form must be used and substitutes are not accepted.
From the online application, email one form to each person from whom you are requesting a recommendation. Each recommender completes their form and sends it to IMD. If you are company-sponsored, you should supply at least one letter of recommendation from a senior executive who knows you well and is familiar with your company's plans for you.
|Choose people who know you well and with whom you have mutual respect over someone with an important title.
Balance your choices: choose people that represent diverse facets of your professional life spanning various companies and years (preferably direct managers).
Alternatively, choose someone who has shared an experience with you either in your professional career or an extracurricular activity (mentors, charity event coordinators, colleagues, etc).
We occasionally encourage people to ‘reapply’ in a few years’ time, however this advice does not guarantee admission at a later date.
Reasons may include:
All reapply applicants must complete a new application. However, you do not need to resubmit academic transcripts or the GMAT score unless the score was not sufficient, there has been a change, or the original has expired.
The application fee is required with each application.
