Dear Mr McBride,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Act request, which related to
MBA admission statistics, as follows:

 

 1. Number of applicants.
 2. Number of offers extended.
 3. Number of applicants enrolled.
 4. The number of applicants who accepted the offer and enrolled.
 5. The number of applicants who accepted the offer and enrolled below 25
years old, 25-27 years old, 28-30 years old, 31-33 years old and over
34 years old.
 6. Median of GMAT scores for applicants.
 7. Median of GMAT scores for offer holders.
 8. Median of GMAT scores for applicants who accepted the offer and
enrolled.
 9. Range, Mean, Median and standard deviation of GMAT for applicants
below 25 years old, 25-27 years old, 28-30 years old, 31-33 years old
and over 34 years old.
10. Range, Mean, Median and standard deviation of GMAT for offer holders
below 25 years old, 25-27 years old, 28-30 years old, 31-33 years old
and over 34 years old.
11. Range, Mean, Median and standard deviation of GMAT for applicants who
accepted the offer and enrolled below 25 years old, 25-27 years old,
28-30 years old, 31-33 years old and over 34 years old.

 

Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act provides that organisations
need not respond to Freedom of Information Act requests if it would take
more than 18 hours to extract and compile the information requested. The
College does not request an admissions test score for most of its MBA
programmes, and of those that do request an admissions test score, an
applicant can choose to offer GRE or GMAT. This information is not readily
extractable from our records. It would be necessary to manually assess all
the MBA applications received in a 5-year period to see whether a GMAT
score had been offered by the applicant. In addition, the Freedom of
Information Act provides a right to access existing records. Organisations
are not obliged to create information in order to respond to Freedom of
Information Act requests. Imperial College does not hold the information
requested at questions 6-11.

 

Imperial College is planning to publish postgraduate admission statistics
for all postgraduate programmes. This will include the number of
applicants, offers and places confirmed and therefore answer your first 4
questions. We expect that this information will be available on
the [1]Transparency pages of our website by the end of January 2022.
Information that is intended for future publication is exempt from the
Freedom of Information Act by virtue of Section 22 of the Act. The
published figures will be updated annually. 

 

Regarding question 5, it would be possible for the College to provide
information on the age of enrolled students. Please confirm if you would
like to proceed with this aspect of your request.

 

If you are unhappy with the way that we have handled your request, you can
ask us to conduct a review. Please make your representation in writing
within 40 days of the date you received this response. If you remain
dissatisfied with how Imperial College has handled your request, you may
then approach the [2]Information Commissioner’s Office.   

 

Yours,

Dear Imperial College London,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Imperial College London's handling of my FOI request 'Admission statistics - MBA (full-time)'.

Please note that there are some parts of my request which do not appear to fall within the plans for future publication. The ICO's guidance on the Section 22 exemption states that it cannot be applied if there has not been an analysis of the materials to discern which parts will be included in a public release, and that it is not enough to note that you "will include some, but not all, of the information requested within the scope of the request for future publication". (https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...)

Can you confirm the following data will be published specifically to the FT MBA Program at Imperial:

1. Number of applicants.
2. Number of offers extended.
3. Number of applicants enrolled.

Additionally, you have calculated that gathering this information will exceed the cost limit, but I believe that this is an overestimation of the resource required. In you're application page it states the following:

You are required to have a valid GMAT or GRE score as part of your application for the Full-Time MBA.

https://www.imperial.ac.uk/business-scho...

The University of Cambridge has provided a full report of admissions data. As a reputable business school, Imperial has the same obligation to ensure transparency for student applicants and the general public.

Dear Mr Mcbride,

Thank you for your email. Please accept our apologies if our response to your request was not sufficiently clear. It would take over 18 hours to compile the detailed statistics that you have requested at questions 6-11. It is that part of your request that would exceed the 18 hours. As stated in our response to your request, applicants to the programme can submit GMAT or GRE. Information about the qualifications achieved by applicants (as opposed to enrolled students) is not readily extractable from our records. To provide the information you have requested, it would be necessary to manually assess all the MBA applications received.

We would be able to provide information on the qualifications achieved by enrolled students, I apologise that we did not suggest that alternative in our initial response to you.

I can confirm that Information on the number of applicants, offers made and enrolled students for all the College's taught postgraduate programmes will be included in the published statistics.

Please advise how you would like to proceed.

Yours,

Anita Hunt

Yours sincerely,

3. Range, Mean, Median and standard deviation of GMAT scores achieved by enrolled students below 25 years old, 25-27 years old, 28-30 years old, 31-33 years old and over 34 years old.

The College will respond to your request by 12 January.

Freedom of Information Team
Imperial College London

Dear Mr McBride,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Act request, which was as
follows:

 

MBA (full time) admissions statistics for the past 5 years:

 

 1. The number of enrolled students below 25 years old, 25-27 years old,
28-30 years old, 31-33 years old and over 34 years old.
 2. Median GMAT scores of enrolled students.
 3. Range, Mean, Median and standard deviation of GMAT scores achieved by
enrolled students below 25 years old, 25-27 years old, 28-30 years
old, 31-33 years old and over 34 years old.

 

The table below shows the number of enrolled students, by age-range.

 

2017-2018 2018-2019 2019-2020 2020-2021 2021-2022
25-27 * * 9 14
28-30 12 29 28 21 14
31-33 34 21 27 21 19
34+ 32 20 11 * 6
Grand Total 78 Approx. 70 Approx. 70 Approx. 60 53

Please note that numbers of five or fewer have been removed from the
figures provided (and the totals where the total would reveal figures of
five or fewer), due to the risk that individuals could be identified from
the information requested. Information is exempt from disclosure under the
Freedom of Information Act, Section 40(2), if it is personal data and
releasing the information would breach one of the data protection
principles contained in the UK General Data Protection Regulations.

 

The table below shows the median GMAT scores of enrolled students.

 

Intake Median
2017-18 650
2018-19 640
2019-20 640
2020-21 640
2021-22 650

 

Regarding your third question, Imperial College does not hold the
information that you have requested. While Imperial College Business
School requires MBA applicants to have GMAT or GRE, there is no specific
threshold that must be met (beyond the recommended minimum overall score)
and the scores are not considered against the age of the applicant. The
college does not collect or compile the information requested at question
3 because such information is not required by or relevant to our MBA
admissions process. In any event, given the relatively low numbers of
enrolled students (an average of 65 in the years covered by your request),
the information broken down as you have requested would result in very low
numbers which we would not release for the reasons given above.

 

If you are unhappy with the way that we have handled your request, you can
ask us to conduct a review. Please make your representation in writing
within 40 days of the date you received this response. If you remain
dissatisfied with how Imperial College has handled your request, you may
then approach the [1]Information Commissioner’s Office.   

 

Yours,

 

Freedom of Information Team
