IMD vs INSEAD MBAIMD and INSEAD MBA programs seem to be different tier programs, but both MBAs are often shortlisted by aspirants who are planning to get into a top program in Europe. Let us look at eleven factors and compare the MBA programs.

1) Size

The primary difference between the two programs is the class size. IMD is targeted for a select few with just 90 students selected every year for the Full-time MBA Program. INSEAD Full-time MBA accepts over 1000 students.

2) Location

IMD’s Campus is located in Lausanne, a French-speaking City in Switzerland. It is just 62km from Geneva, one of the Financial Centers in the world. The largest employment opportunity in Lausanne is for the services sector, followed by manufacturing and processed goods sector. INSEAD, on the other hand, has a three-campus structure: Fontainebleau (Main Campus), Singapore and Abu Dhabi. With this structure, students can leverage the strengths of each of the locations – Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Flexibility: Insead > IMD...

Essay 1: Give a candid description of yourself (who are you as a person), stressing the personal characteristics you feel to be your strengths and weaknesses and the main factors which have influenced your personal development, giving examples when necessary (approximately 500 words).

This essay perhaps is one of the toughest questions to answer, not because of the complexity of the question, but for most of us, writing about our weakness is an ego buster. But don't worry. We have covered strategies to present your weaknesses in our Essay Guide. INSEAD MBA Admissions team knows that leaders have one unifying quality – “they have an encyclopedic awareness of their Strengths and Weaknesses.”

Why is Self-Awareness Important?

Self-awareness evaluates your leadership quality. If you have never reflected, at least informally, about your weakness, you are blinded by the halo of grandiose – a quality that is cited as the major reason why top performing professionals are rejected from the application pool.

Team Building

The value of self-awareness is not limited to your emotional intelligence but acts as the foundation for team building. A...

Insead MBAIn the Second Part of the Interview with Minh Huy Lai, the Managing Director of INSEAD MBA Programme, we discuss the Admission process (Essays, Recommendation Letter and Interviews), the entry criteria (GMAT, International Exposure, Experience), and the scholarship opportunities for MBA Applicants.

Read the first part of the interview to learn about INSEAD's MBA Curriculum, Campus Structure and the program's success in attracting top recruiters from Management Consulting.

Are there any criteria in terms of International exposure when you accept INSEAD candidates? Should they have travel experience or is it just working with an International (Multinational) company that counts?

 
Minh (INSEAD MBA): First, let us discuss what International experience means. An applicant might be working in their home country for an International company, but if they have traveled and stayed in another country for work, we consider it an international experience. Or they should have worked with an international team and interacted with them on a regular basis. Even if the applicant has no...

Insead MBAAtul Jose, Editor of F1GMAT, Interviewed Minh Huy Lai, Managing Director of the INSEAD MBA Programme to get a first-hand view of the curriculum, post-MBA opportunities, Campus structure, INSEAD's dominance in Management Consulting and the Admission process for the full-time MBA.

How does INSEAD complete the core and electives in such a short period (10 months) compared to US Business Schools that are typically 2-years in duration?
 
Minh (INSEAD MBA): When you look at the average age at INSEAD, it is 29. Our class is quite older. Students with considerable experience absorb faster. Another thing is that our Founder was an educator at Harvard Business School. He realized that we could deliver the same quality at a much shorter time. Our classes are longer in duration with a typical break at INSEAD ranging 3-4 days instead of 1-2 weeks that you see in US Schools. Our program is much more intense. That is how we cover so much in a short period. We have done that for 58 years. Recruiters will never come to us if we are not delivering on the quality of students at INSEAD. That is why INSEAD has...
