MBA Interview Preparation

  • Artículo escrito por: .

Now that round 2 of the MBA application season is over, you can finally relax! NO, not really!! It is time to prepare for your MBA interviews! Hopefully, if you made a strong application, in just a week or two you will be getting an Invitation to Interview.

The interview is an essential part of the MBA application process. Here is a general breakdown of how it works at most schools:

1) the admissions committee recieves thousands of applications
2) they review the applications and reduce them to a small select group who will be interviewed
3) from that pool of interviewed applicants, more than half will be admitted to the MBA

So, if you are invited to interview, your odds of admission went from very small (just 7% at Stanford, 11.5% at Harvard, 20% at Wharton) to much higher, generally more than 50% possibility of being admitted.

Getting invited to interview means two things for you (the applicant):

1) the admissions committee likes you so far! your profile is good enough for admittance into the school and now they want to know you a bit more.
2) you still have work to do! That brings us to this article:

You MUST prepare your MBA interview carefully.

Being invited to interview is a great sign, it is a confirmation that you have what it takes to succeed in the MBA program, but you are still facing 50/50 odds. You can improve those odds by preparing your interview: understand the type of interview you will have (blind, non-blind), with whom (alumni, adcom member, 3rd party), where (on campus, in your hometown, by Skype), in group or single, etc. Once you understand these facts, you must prepare accordingly: know your application inside and out, study your CV, prepare interview questions and practice, practice, practice.

To help you succeed in your MBA interview, expert MBA admissions coach Candy Lee LaBalle is offering an exclusive MBA Interview Seminar on Friday, 07 February 2014. This seminar will cover:

-Different Interview Types (blind/non-blind; individual/group)
-Alumni v. Adcom Interviews
-Common Interview Questions
-Behavioural Questions + STAR
-Preparing an Interview Matrix
-Dealing with Unexpected Questions
-Focusing on the Positive
-Overcoming Weaknesses
-Controlling your Message
-Specific School Requirements

Seminar Cost is 65 euros and seats are very limited.
