关于我

2009年7月份,我给一个老朋友(Simon FT-MBA,2010春季班)为申请MBA而写的Essay提了几点比较关键的修改建议。后来,她成功拿到Simon的Offer。再后来,她建议我做留学DIY咨询方面的工作,并向我介绍了我的第一个客户。最终,我的第一个客户也成功拿到几个TOP16商学院的面试并顺利拿到Duke Fuqua商学院MBA的录取。 本人毕业于上海复旦大学管理学院国际企业管理系,属于商科科班出身并且做过管理工作、有领导经验的人士。

留学面经:Interview Questions From Top MBA Programs (2016-2017)


BY: JEFF SCHMITT ON FEBRUARY 06, 2016

 

 

Interview Questions From Top MBA Programs

“Why an MBA?” “Why here?” “Why now?

Those are the big three interview questions in any interview. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first round phenom or third round rabble rouser. And it’s same if you’re sitting down with an alum or skyping with an adcom. You’d better be able to paint a compelling portrait of why you belong. Considering the competition, that means positioning yourself as the “indispensible” candidate – the person who runs clubs and organizes trips, collecting awards and press clippings along the way.

Of course, those aren’t the only questions to expect. Traditionally, you’ll be walking the interviewer through your resume. Chances are, you’ll spend your time explaining the process and rationale behind your career choices, such as your industry, employer, and role. Not to mention, you’re certain to field questions about what you hope to accomplish in both the near-term and the long-term.

Think of such questions as unforced errors – you can easily prepare for them. However, schools are known to ask their own special brand of questions. Many times, business schools ask prospective students to describe how they’ve acted in adverse situations or function in a  team setting. They’re looking to see how you perceive and respond – and how you’re able to lead and motivate others.

So what should you be prepared to answer at particular schools? Each year, Clear Admit encourages MBA applicants to share their interview experiences, offering a $10 gift card (along with including respondents in a drawing to win larger prizes). As part of their submissions, students include both the questions they were asked and their impressions of the overall process at the school.

If you’ve landed an invite and are busily prepping for the big day, here are some of the questions that your peers are being asked at programs ranging from Stanford to Kelley.

(To see the full list of questions, click on the Clear Admit links provided)
