IMD MBA Program Admissions
Our admissions process is highly personalized and is tailored according to your individual profile. We take the time to really get to know you and ensure that you have the chance to get to know us and our alumni. We want to see candidates who understand the magnitude of change and opportunity the business world is facing. You will need to convince us that you have a vision of what lies ahead and of your desire and capacity to play a part in shaping the future of our world.
80% of our applicants are between 28-32 years old and the majority have worked outside their home country and speak several languages (you need at least one language in addition to English). Strong applicants are smart, with strong previous experience and achievements, and have the drive to pursue the journey to the end and contribute to the enriching class experience.
