During the search for the right MBA program for me, IMD was at the top of my list because of its reputation and focus on global leadership and entrepreneurship. The experience at IMD’s Mumbai Assessment Challenge reassured me about my choice. During the challenge all participants started out as strangers and towards the end of the day, became friends. It was because of the well-designed process which helped us identify each other’s strengths and leverage them. This was a day filled with learning from others, innovating together, and challenging ourselves.
Now at IMD, my experience thus far has exceeded the expectations set by the Mumbai Assessment Challenge. Our cohort of 90 students is brilliant, accomplished, and yet, we are all here to learn and grow. Every day is challenging and inspiring. The IMD MBA team works continuously to make our year here impactful and rigorous while making all of us feel well cared for. The IMD MBA is already turning out to be one of the key transformational experiences of my life.
