How to prepare for interviews for B Schools

Stage 1:

First of all, Congratulations! on clearing the first stage of the MBA admission process. You should be proud of yourself that you have reached this stage, but there is a long way to go, you have just reached halfway by clearing the MBA entrance exams. The next stage is to complete the process of Personal Interview, Group Discussion, and Written Ability Test, etc.

Stage 2:

Almost all the colleges have these admission process to be followed that are

1. Personal Interview

2. Group Discussion

3. Written Ability Test

So let’s discuss the Personal Interview which has the maximum weightage in the admission process, hence it is very comprehensive and needs proper preparation for the same.

Personal Interviews:

Most important is that one has to know what you have done so far in life, for example, educational background, personal information, etc, and what is the most important reason to do an MBA.

Following are some questions that are asked in the personal interview:

Tell Me Something About Yourself

Tell Me Something About Yourself

This is one of the most important questions asked in the personal interview, this question decides whether you are going to get through the interview. This question gives you the opportunity to tell detailed information about yourself, it helps you to tell that what all you have done till now and how this B school will help you to shape your career positively.

Some important points to remember when you will answer the question “tell me something about yourself.”

  •  Keep it short and simple, it should end within or less than 2 minutes.
  •  Make it more personalised, try to explain it with examples.
  •  For example, instead of mentioning that I belong to Mumbai, one can say that I am a native of the “city of dreams” i.e Mumbai which is also the capital of Maharashtra.
  • Then you can start with the educational background such as school, college, the reason behind your graduation degree, why did you choose the particular field and what did you learn from the same and also can mention the challenges faced by the same.
  • Next, you can talk about the work experience or if you are a fresher then you can talk about the internship or any project that you have worked on and most importantly what was the role and what did you learn from it.
  • Then you can talk about the achievements that you had.
  •  Academic Achievements- Here you can mention the academic achievements that you have won such as scholarships, academic or corporate competitions that you have won, or exams like Maths/ Science/ English/ Cyber Olympiads, etc.
  •  Extra-curriculars – Here you can mention the extracurriculars that you have done in life such as Music, Singing, Dance, Sports, Debate competitions, etc.
  • Co-curricular- Here you can talk about the academic projects, research papers, any responsibilities, internships, etc which you have done along with your academics.
