Welcome! I am MBA graduate from Harvard Business School’s Class of 2015.
For me, applying to do an MBA in the US was quite an uncommon path. When I was invited to interview, I had no idea what to expect. All I knew is I wanted to give myself the best chance at admission and was willing to put in a lot of time to make sure I was as prepared as possible.
When preparing for interviews, my approach is to firstly understand of all possible sorts questions I could be asked. After that, I think through “why” would these questions be asked? What is the interviewer looking to learn about me by asking this question? This information is much harder to find. While the internet had been very helpful with tips for how to prepare my application, I found it much less helpful for preparing for the interview. So, I put together my own interview guide, including:
- A list of possible questions
- The points to highlight in the responses based on what the schools are looking for in an applicant
- My personal “stories” I could share to demonstrate a characteristic or value
In the 4 years since my interview, many of my former colleagues and friends have reached out to hear about my experience in the application process. In particular, they are eager to understand the interview process, and get my advice on the sort of questions they should prepare to answer. Like me, they have not found a “one stop shop” for MBA interview questions.
I put this guide together during my own interview preparation, and updated it to include my personal experience interviewing and that of my friends. This guide has been designed to save you hours of time and make your interview preparation much more efficient and effective. It contains over 50 practice questions and tips on how to answer the questions.
On this site you will find articles about the key aspects of the MBA interview, and a link to access the guide.
