You need to get two people to be your referees. They should be:

  • Your current employer (if you don’t want to ask your employer to be a referee, a colleague is acceptable)
  • Someone else who knows you well in a work context, for example a former employer or long-standing client.

Once you have added their details into the online application form, teh B-school will send them an email with log-in details for their online reference system. They might contact your referees if need be.

Tips for recommendation letters

  • Who can give a recommendation: You will have to provide details of one recommender who can be your reporting manager/ previous manager/ senior colleague/ current client/ previous client/ business partner/ supplier/ auditor etc.
  • It should not be a bunch of adjectives. The recommender should add specific instances/examples of your professional work together.
  • Academic recommendations ( from professors/teachers etc) are not valid
  • The recommender should send the recommendation from the official email id only. If the recommender does not have an official id – then a proof that you reported / or was supervised by this person should be attached.
  • Go by the nature of the assessment rather than the seniority of the designation
