Re: IMD Switzerland MBA (1 year)

Hi Angshur, I would say yes, applying in the Aug 1st deadline is too late for the below reasons: *More than 2-3rd of the class is filled (admission offers are accepted) *As there fewer places, but still potentially great applicants (including yourself), greater likelihood of being wait-listed with l...

Re: IMD Switzerland MBA (1 year)

Hi Gaurav, GMAT - strongly recommend you improve to somewhere near 700. IMD's class is small (90), designed in a manner that no nationality has more than 10% of the class, meaning max 9 Indians / people of Indian origin, all diverse (IT, Consulting and industry). Over the last 5-6 years or so, the n...

Re: MS, MFE, Mfin, MPhil, PhD, other degrees

One more question, if i plan to join the 2014 class i will have around 7 years of experience. Would that be more considering the average experience for applying the course of MFE. ------- seekingMFEdetails, That sounds like good operational experience even if conducted largely back-office; you shou...

Hi happier and NOTSOConfused Le :-)

Experience always helps! If you feel confident with the extra, go for it. I don't see any issues with your profile for NITIE.

All the best

Re: MS, MFE, Mfin, MPhil, PhD, other degrees

Hi SeekingMFEdetails, Overall - seems a good profile you haven't provided more detail on what you specifically do for a Hedge Fund, but I assume its quite quantitative. Good academics, hopefully from a strong engineering school with a tough-graded program. If yes, I think you can get into an MFE or ...

Re: MS, MFE, Mfin, MPhil, PhD, other degrees

Hi Tonmoy, My opinion - it's going to be hard for you to get into a good US Engineering/Business School (required for what you want to study). You might be better off trying the CAT (or equivalent exam) and get into the FPM/Ph.D Program at one of the Top Indian B-Schools or Engineering Schools. Stro...
