IMD MBA “Create our Future” Challenge

The admissions team is gearing up for an exciting new admissions event in Mumbai, India.

We’ve been brainstorming with alumni, participants, faculty and leadership coaches to come up with a unique event to attract the very best in an area that is home to such a strong pool of talented professionals.

Applicants will need to complete and submit an event-specific application by May 1st and our admissions team will then pre-select those who will be invited to take part in a one-day challenge. A chance to brainstorm on how society could and should address some of its most pressing challenges. Those who make the most impact, who contribute most to the idea generation and who demonstrate leadership and potential for greatness will be shortlisted by our selection team.

The top applicant will be awarded a CHF 40,000 scholarship for the IMD MBA Program, up to four others will be offered a place in the IMD MBA class of 2019.

We’re really looking forward to being inspired by the innovative thinking of future-oriented optimists and their ideas.

The “Create our Future” Challenge will take place in Mumbai on 20th May with networking the night before. Winners will be announced on 21st.
