How To Crack an Interview for a Top Business School?

Posted on August 13, 2020 by Umer Fayaz  | Academics | Blog

Getting into a top B-School is a dream for many but it requires a great deal of hard work and patience. The admission process at any reputed business school involves entrance exams that test subjective knowledge and aptitude of a candidate. Some schools also ask for work experience to evaluate your candidature for admission. Another important aspect of the admission process is personal interviews.

Admission committees at the leading business schools insist on interviewing candidates because it provides them personal insights into a number of factors like communication skills, emotional intelligence and leadership qualities of a candidate. Based on that, the committee decides whether the applicant is fit for the course or not. Appearing before the experts and being interviewed by them can be a challenging task for many but if you know the mantra, you are likely to ace the interview.

Prepare Beforehand

Qualifying an interview is a skill that needs to be honed and worked on. Ask your friends, teachers or parents to prepare a list of questions and take your mock interviews. Dress up and act like you are facing a real interview, doing so would help you in pinpointing the areas that need to be worked on and overall it will help you to stay focused. Preparing a list of the common questions that are asked in the interviews is surely a good thing to start with.

Ask Questions

The experts in the interview panel expect you to ask some questions. It is preferable that you keep a few questions already at your disposal. Doing so will help you to make the process less monotonous and that’s what the interviewers want from you. Make sure that you bring specific questions that are not already available in the public domain.

Be Yourself

The aim of a personal interview is to explore the strengths and weaknesses of a candidate. Any attempt you do to hide that or boasting about something you haven’t done will easily be noticed by the interviewer. Sounding overconfident or scared will ruin the interview. Talk about your experiences and weaknesses while explaining how you want to improve on them. Talking about your failures and mistakes gives your story more credibility but ensure that you know where to stop.

Common Interview Questions

The easiest way to go about preparing for an interview is to compile a list of common questions that are asked during the interview at the business schools. Here are a few common questions:

    1. Why do you want to attend this college/university?
    2. What are you hoping to gain from the course?
    3. Where do you see yourself in five years?
    4. What are you motivated by?
    5. What are three interesting things about you that I wouldn’t know from your application?
    6. What’s an example of an obstacle, a failure, or a mistake that you learned from?

    If you want to study in India at a low-cost end receive a degree from the University of London, then ISBF has a line up of programmes that are rigorous and industry-oriented.
