Some people consider the ‘Personal Interview’ as a chance to take the next step towards their dream while others just consider it as another round of selection process. You may be aware that interview questions for MBA admission are intelligently crafted to assess you from head to toe. It is the toughest round to clear among all the milestones towards the admission in a good reputed MBA college, indeed the last mile as well.
This is because, despite months of preparation, it is unpredictable if you will be able to face the questions thrown at you in the personal interview round.
Some personal interview questions for MBA admission with tips an aspirant must prepare thoroughly
1. Tell me something about yourself?
Ans. This question is generally asked to check your communication skills, confidence level, and body language. Also how you make sure that you are giving the most brilliant first impression.
Here you can talk about your background, educational and professional background, your interests and hobbies and finally about your strengths and weaknesses.
2. Where do you see yourself 5 years down the line?
Ans. Try to be honest while answering this one. Don’t say “in your position”, it is an outdated answer. Try to give relevant and appropriate answers which should be your ultimate career objective and make sure that it sinks with your line of specialization and your choice to do an MBA.
3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Ans. This question is thrown at you to get a detailed analysis of yourself. Be genuine and answer this one with grace. Make sure that your strengths overcome your weaknesses. Also, tell the interviewer that you are working on your weaknesses.
4. Why MBA?
Ans. Answer this question by telling me about your background. Try to relate the MBA with your background. If you are a fresher you can say that MBA would be a great platform to give you an entry in a corporate world and if you are someone with prior experience tell the actual reason for pursuing MBA.
5. Why this institute?
Ans. A little homework and your actual opinion about the institute before sitting for an interview will help you answer this one.
In conclusion, I would say that even though the interview questions for MBA admission may be new, being prepared for the obvious ones will instill confidence in you.
