Step by Step Application Guide

Are You GMAT & GRE Ready?

2 male and 2 female students are smiling while networking in INSEAD programme, indicative of the opportunity to mix with corporate leaders from different industries and countries.

Thinking of applying to the programme? A strong GMAT or GRE score helps us assess your ability to succeed in the programme.

Like many other adaptive tests, both tests require rigorous preparation in the weeks leading up to the exam date. With the right approach and proper planning, however, acing them is well within reach.

Practice the tests on our online simulators to assess your level.

Admissions Video Interview

Shortly after completing your INSEAD MIM online application, you will receive an e-mail notification from Kira Talent with a unique link to complete 4 video interviews.

The video interviews are a unique opportunity for you to share your passions, your motivations and who you truly are. The MIM Admissions Committee is interested in obtaining an authentic view of you as a person, to see how you think on your feet and how you convey your ideas.

The video interviews do not replace the face-to-face interviews with Alumni.

Your application will be considered as complete and ready to be reviewed only once we have received your answers to the video interviews. Please complete your video interviews at your earliest convenience and no later than 48 hours after the deadline to which you are applying. 

General instructions on video interviews

  • You will need an internet connection, a desktop or laptop, a camera and a microphone. To avoid having to refresh your browser, consider using a cable for internet connectivity. 
  • For optimal user experience, we recommend that you use Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Safari or Chrome to record your Kira videos (Internet Explorer is not supported). Please note that mobile devices, smartphones and tablets are not supported at this time.
  • You may want to prepare a notebook next to you to write down your key ideas; you will have 45 seconds to prepare each answer and 60 seconds to share each answer with the Admissions Committee.
  • Test your camera, your microphone, then forget the technology and look at the camera as if you were talking to the Admissions Committee
  • You can prepare yourself by practising as much as you wish. Preparation and familiarity with the interface can help you to convey authentic and genuine answers. Practice responses are not shared with the Admissions Committee.
  • Although we ask you to wear business or business casual attire, the Admissions Committee will not judge your look or your background.

Useful tips for video interviews

Prepare, but don’t over prepare

  • While practising helps to minimise nervousness, avoid over-scripting your responses. Original answers with real-life examples drawn from your own experience will allow us to understand your motivation and interests.
  • Given that this is an opportunity for you to present your authentic self, relying on canned responses or AI-generated text is highly discouraged. We have found that such responses diminish a candidate’s ability to impress us with their energy and passion.
  • Structure your responses to help you better manage the interview questions (e.g. consider leading into your answers with a main point/statement, before contextualising or providing examples).

Connect and Be Yourself

  • Maintain eye contact with the camera (as you would in an actual interview) and avoid referring to your prepared notes too frequently.
  • The INSEAD community is global and embraces diverse perspectives. Do not be afraid to inject some personality into your responses.

How many questions are in the video interviews?

You must record your answers to 4 questions. Questions always vary from one applicant to another. You have 45 seconds to prepare each answer and 60 seconds to record your answer.

How many times can I try the practice questions?

You can practise an unlimited number of times. The practice session has several questions available and you can do as many practice sessions as you need to feel comfortable with the video interviewing. You do not need to complete everything in one go. You can create an account and come back later.

Are the practice questions recorded?

No, the practice questions are available for you to prepare, learn and improve. You can replay them and see how you performed and/or check if the sound and image are satisfactory.

What is the address for the technical support?

If you experience technological issues with the video (practice questions, device set up, etc.), please check the following technical support webpage You can either e-mail, phone or chat with the Kira technicians.

When will I receive the link to the video interviews?

The unique link to the video interview is available within an hour of submitting your application. An e-mail message containing the link is sent to you by Kira Academic. The link is also available on the dashboard of the online application system.

When should I submit the video interview?

Please complete your video interviews at your earliest convenience and no later than 48 hours after the deadline to which you are applying. We strongly recommend however that you complete this step before the final date to allow yourself some time to prepare for this exercise.
