The Most Useful Tips To Ace The Interview In MBA

images

 

Time management preparation

The most important thing to be taken care of is time spacing in MBA interview. A student must make useful time calculation during the interview. Personal preparations make it easy to perform to optimum levels. Moreover, it is best to follow your own yardstick as your know your strengths and weaknesses. However, time management is the deciding factor.

Regular practice schedule

Keep a regular touch on questions most expected. Be genuine in the interviews. It is easy to identify if you are reciting few sections from your essay. Keep the flow going while speaking. Practice more with the trainers and friends by involving them more in mock interviews. Be clear about what you want to say. Once you strike a good conversation with the interviewers they will make the process more comfortable.

Get linked to the question

Only when a student gets to relate to the question the interview will be successful. Wait for the interviewer to complete the question. Stick to the point. So, answer accordingly than moving ahead. Do not waver into unrelated topics. Therefore, listen carefully before answering.

Walk on the same platform

Musicians are a good example. Once they strike the right note the sweetness of the music become more melodious. So is the case with an MBA interview. Quick responses give you the edge in creating a friendly atmosphere. This adds to your confidence. This sets the ball rolling for a successful interview process. Honest response to the questions are right steps that build a good relationship with the interviewers.

Be prepared for unexpected questions

Always keep in mind that a B-school is conducting an interview. It is due to the fact that you are found eligible for getting enrolled. There may be a topic on which the interviewer will keep asking repeated questions. Be calm and answer without any irritation. Do not give into their trap. The admission will be cancelled. It is just a strategy to see how well your reaction could be.

Speak to the point

Short answers are the best option. The interviewer may appear friendly. Do not get carried away and start talking at length. Use examples with explanations.

Keep open windows of conversation

As the interview progresses open a window of conversation that keeps the atmosphere alive. This helps you to show your strong skill of communication. But, don’t drag it much. Stick to one topic related to the interview. The references you provide should be used wisely.

Two way communication

Communicate openly to draw attention of your interviewer about special interests and activities in the university or B-school. The questions you ask should be intelligent. Don’t ask questions on information available on the school or college websites.

Planning time is essential

The interview could be around 45 minutes. Therefore, engage the interviewer within that time space. Make strong and clear statements. If you are not able to understand a question, you have the freedom to ask the question again.

Be early for the interview

As a professional you must be well aware to come early for the interview. It helps to relax. The dress sense should be neat. It should be business class. Make mention of a certain part in the interview that impressed you most. After the interview is over don’t forget to say thank you.

11 Reasons – Why do Students need a Consultant for MBA and MS admissions?

Manhattan Review India

In today’s highly competitive world it is of prime importance that one should get professional help to stay ahead of the pack. Professional admission consultants are immensely significant in this regard as they know lot of strategies which helps students in maximizing their chances so that they do not lose out.

Our point is – If you do not take professional help, there is a high chance that your competitors (other students) are doing so to gain advantage over you.

Read on to know how professional admission consultants can help you outshine others.

  1. The Insider’s Edge

It is always good to have somebody who knows what it takes to get into the elite B-Schools and top universities. A second professional opinion always helps. They know the ways through which you can brighten your chances of earning an interview call. Our point is, if help is available, why not take it. Getting a bit of advice from friend or two provides very limited and probably obsolete information.

  1. Short on time

Almost everybody has lot of multiple roles to play in our daily lives. Therefore it is only a matter of time, when students should seek professional help to manage the entire admission schedule.

  1. First Timers need it, Second timers need it even more

Now, if you are applying for the first time, an admission consultant helps you in getting your dream college, making your life easy in the process. They help you save time on online research. Admission consultants become even more significant, especially when students are applying for second or third time as you do not want to commit the same mistake again.

  1. If your weakness column is heavier

If you feel that there are a lot of areas where you are weak and need professional help, then without wasting any time you should consult an admission consultant to iron out the flaws. Better to act before it is too late.

  1. Even great players need coaches

We have handled several students in the past who were brilliant in academics, had an excellent percentage, a high GMAT/GRE score. However they got rejected because the other important parts of the application forms were not covered properly and after they came to us. So professional advice always helps.

  1. Extensive research about schools

You might have zeroed in a good school but it may happen that your particular choice of subject is being taught better in some other good school. Let a professional help you in getting it right for you. You need to cross the line within a stipulated time and time flies too soon.

  1. Professional approach

Professional consultants have good amount of experience behind them, so you can seek advice for maximization of your chances. Take advantage of free assessment tests, whenever you get it.

  1. Training for VISA Interview

All of us are aware how difficult it is to clear the VISA interview. And especially with norms being stricter it is always advisable to have some training under your belt before the show down. A must for those who have never faced any VISA interview in their lives or have been repeatedly rejected.

  1. Admission consultants are a good alternative to Admission Officers

During the entire process, you will have lot of questions but you cannot expect the admission officer to answer all of them. Admission consultants know a great deal about schools and since they charge you some money, therefore they will be more than ready to solve any of your queries and you know help is nearby, whenever you need.

  1. Post Sales Service

Some of the admission consultants like Manhattan Review even offer after admission services like Pre-departure orientation, Foreign Exchange and Travel assistance, different Dos and Don’ts checklists etc. It is a great value addition especially for those who are first timers in the US academic world.

  1. Finally, the most important reason

You should be committed for the entire process – right from free counseling, test preparation to pre-departure orientation. This will optimize your whole experience and benefit you from the total services offered by companies like Manhattan Review.  Then only would you be taking advantage of the experience, expertise and the large network of Manhattan Review.

What next, apart from USA?

What next, apart from USA-

Indian (even other international) students are very worried about the situation in USA, where the proposed legislations might affect their ‘employability’ chances and the opportunity to gain meaningful work experience in addition to the possibility of making a career/life in USA.

As far as education is concerned, there are absolutely no restrictions to study in USA – in good universities and programs. However, it is always best to plan for self-funding for the first semester (tuition and living) rather than looking for part-time jobs and other funding opportunities. It is expected (by the US government) that those who plan to study in USA, must be self-sufficient financially and should not depend upon jobs and doles. This trend will help students to get entry into USA if they show adequate proof of funds for their education.

Coming to employment after education (OPT), a major concern is about the proposal to restrict the same (OPT) to one year, instead of three years (for STEM program students) This effectively means that students can stay back for 12 months after their education, instead of 36 months. Please note however, that this is only a proposal and has not been made a law yet.

So, what are the options for Indian students who wish to avoid USA and look for other countries?

Canada is one country which is safer, equally good (for education), cheaper and more stable politically. Importantly, almost all programs/courses are available as in the US universities.

The biggest advantage for students is that they can stay back for THREE years in Canada, after their education, with a post-graduation work permit. This will help students to not only gain work experience but also use it for permanent residence (PR).

Obviously, Canada will be the best bet for education and settlement, as an alternative to USA.

Germany permits extension of visas to students for a period of one and half years (1.5 years) after their education. Students will have unrestricted access for employment, during this 1.5 year period.  While there is limited possibility to settle down in Germany after education and employment, the world-class education, coupled with rich work experience will provide students with opportunities world-wide for better prospects.

All said and done, USA is always the best destination in terms of education, flexibility, jobs, full-time employment opportunities and settlement. Moreover, with Trump’s proposal to offer ‘merit-based immigration’ to people who want to settle in USA (like Canada and Australia), USA becomes all the more attractive, notwithstanding the stray incidents that are troubling Indians.

So, choose your country carefully with your long-term goals in view. Manhattan Review (MR) will be pleased to provide you with more information and help you make a proper decision on your plans of studying abroad.  Meet our counselors at a center nearest to you.
