Admissions update!

Category: By Stuart
hi Guys,

Thanks for the numerous mails & messages ....

i have some scoop regarding the admissions of the incoming class (Class of 2009):

  1. The class size is likely to be 40 participants (up from 35 of the present class).More than half of this number (> 20) have already enrolled and many are in the process of confirming their participation.
  2. While there are 5 more seats available this year, there has been a 5 fold increase in applications compared to last year.
  3. The average GMAT of the students admitted is around 710.
  4. With an objective to ensure a diverse international participant mix, country specifuc quotas of a max 5-7 students from one nation are in place. As a result highly competitive applications (with good work experience and GMATs of 730-740+) from Americans, Indians and Germans have been turned away.
  5. There is a discussion about cancelling the 4th admission round (June 1 deadline) as the target enrollment is likely to be achieved by the 3rd deadline (April 1).

(Meanwhile, Steve Riley has replaced heiko as the admissions manager.)

Hope this helps!



p.s. : Many of you have written to me about the forum HSG. I will publish a post soon on that.
