I applied to the YLP programme in my pre-final year and did not make it through possibly because of a low GMAT score. I plan to apply again this year as a final year student. Does it affect your application in any way? What are some things re-applicants need to keep in mind while applying?

I have 11 years of experience in IT across various industry domains and cross functional roles. While I see that the general class profile is between 23 and 42 years of age, I would like to know from ISB Alumni and experts here on the points of being among the most aged in an ISB class. If anyone could elucidate the pros and cons of my position, it would be great.

PS: Though I have never given GMAT, I had an Admit to SUNY Buffallo Phd In Marketing management (2005 admit, GRE/TOEFL) but could not take it up for personal reasons.

Young Leaders Program, notes on each option at stage 1.


Option 1: Write about an incident or set of incidents in your life that had the most profound influence on you. While writing this essay briefly mention the incident and the impact it has had on your life. (300 words max)

Option 2: How would you describe yourself as a person and what are the two qualities / skills / attributes that you wish to further develop in yourself through the ISB Young Leaders Programme? (300 words max) 

(300 words max)

As all you YLP Applicants might be aware, ISB has given two options for answering Stage 1 Essay this year. We will be highlighting how to choose the right option given your profile and how to approach each option in detail.

Choosing the right option :

The first option’s intent is to understand your experiences and learnings at a broader level, here you talk about your story, your formative experiences and incidents that have profoundly influenced the way you think, act, live and learn.

Choose this option if you have had a specific incident that changed your outlook for the better or if you want to showcase how you have developed over the years into a wise and prudent individual because of a string of events and experiences. This option gives you an opportunity to bring forth the real motivations and stories that have shaped you.

Someone with good writing proficiency and a creative bent of mind could do wonders with this essay. Also one of the pre-requisites here is to actually have been privy to such a profound experience. It may not be commonplace and hence you have to take a long hard look at your past experiences and pick out significant instances that demonstrate learning and growth.

The Second option is a good way out for the non-author types, you can follow a structured content and trait based approach. Ask yourself, what are the two things that work the best for you, character traits/attributes. You could be a leader, someone with great interpersonal skills or someone with a well rounded personality. Pick the top 2 traits, or if you are confused ask a few friends or your professors. Also this essay gives you an opportunity to showcase your clarity around your career goals, both right after college as well as after YLP. You can talk in depth about your take aways from ISB and the YLP weekend programs in between. More on this soon.

Hello all,

  I'm working in IOCL currently. I've 8months experience in L&T ECC, then if I'm joining for 2018 intake, I'll hav 3.5 years exp in IOCL. I passed out from NITC with 8.2 GPA. 10th & 12th - 97 and 94%.. I heard that people with experience lyk me, will be preferred for admission in the name of diversity of the batch,  but for placements, I'll be having a tough time. Any truth in this? Any ex- PSU - ISB people you know? if yes, where did they end up after the prgm.. Also in a dilemma, whether to quit or not?
