Application deadlines

The IMD MBA assessment has been specifically designed to offer a more in-depth, mutual opportunity for us to get to know each other better. We will be looking to develop our understanding of the unique aspects that you will bring to the program. You should equally take this time to assess our culture, teaching style, network and vision because we want you to be able to get the most out of this year as possible.

When choosing your application deadline, ensure you leave enough time to fully prepare in advance while also bearing in mind any other constraints that will influence your decision timing.

Next steps

Once we have reviewed your application, successful candidates will be invited for an online interview and further assessment, which will include an elevator pitch, a team experience, class observation (where possible) and networking with members of the MBA team. 

Soon after acceptance of our offer and payment of the first deposit, we will run random background checks on some applications, to verify the authenticity of degrees and work history (including most recent salary).

Assessment Challenges

An alternate admissions route is to join one of our Assessment Challenges. These competition-style, local events aim to drive diversity in the class and each one comes with a unique scholarship opportunity.

Applicants from our Assessment Challenges are not eligible for our regular Admissions Process in the same year.
