In the hierarchy of business school rankings, no program is as selective as the Stanford Graduate School of Business. With an MBA acceptance rate that is traditionally in the single digits, GSB is the program that knows exactly the type of MBA candidate they are looking for and they know how to filter out the rest. The school expects applicants to truly know who they are as not only a business professional, but more importantly, as a person. They will accept nothing less from those who eventually gain entrance to GSB - MBA students who truly know themselves and how they plan to change their communities and leave the world a better place than they found it. If you doubt your candidacy to the world’s most selective MBA program, relax for a moment and read this guide.
Every year, we work with a growing number of INSEAD applicants who decide to take advantage of the staggered intake system to submit a sterling "summer app" to what many believe is the top non-U.S. business school in the world. It is due to this rise in popularity that we added an INSEAD guide to our "how to apply" series that previously featured HBS, Wharton, and Columbia (GSB and Booth are in the works). We are also happy to say that we have enjoyed a success rate with June INSEAD applicants that is basically unprecedented. Whether this is because of the added focus (other than HBS 2+2, we really don't have any other clients applying to schools in late May or July) or because we just have INSEAD nailed, it's hard to say.
Either way, if you are considering a summer submission to INSEAD, we would encourage you to download our guide at the very least. If you are interested in full consulting services, shoot us an email at email@example.com and we can share with you our approach for nailing the DNA of INSEAD and helping a diverse mix of applicants gain enrollment to that program. We've helped applicants young and old, in elite jobs and out of work altogether, and from four different continents and we can help you as well.
