Assessment Challenges

IMD envisions a future of business and society that includes even more diversity amongst our leaders.

To foster this growth and encourage high acheivers who don’t necessarily have the financial means to apply, but do have the potential, drive and passion that we are looking for, we have created the IMD MBA 'Create our Future' Assessment Challenges.

If you have the desire and ability to join this select group, we want to help you.

If you understand the magnitude of change and opportunity the business world is facing, this is your chance to convince us of your capacity to play a part in shaping the future of our society.
