Top 5 mba admission interview questions

Confidence is the key to crack MBA Interview:

The answers should be answered with full confidence. The interviewer many times tries to shake the candidate by confusing over data or answer, but candidate must have confidence. This does not mean that one should exaggerate about a topic and reflect overconfidence.

The answers must be replied without offending the interviewer. Similarly, the candidates need to be updated in current affairs to avoid any errors.

The candidate must know to drive the interview towards one's strength. While answering, if possible it should be related to candidates’ strong area. Sometimes, interviewers tend to ask question-related to your undergraduate stream. One must be prepared to face such questions since your degree says a lot about you.

Be Calm and Polite:

Now, while speaking one should be calm and polite. If an answer is not known, simply deny it. There is no harm in not knowing everything. Instead of misleading yourself to an unknown or ambiguous topic, one must avoid it. Sometime the interviewer may be wrong about any information, and they can be corrected politely. The MBA interviews are stressed ones, and one must stay calm and think before answering. Be relaxed and calm as much as possible, and it is the key to adding some points on your side.

Confident About the Facts Mentioned in CV:

In an MBA interview, most questions are from the candidates’ CV. The information provided in the CV must be fully versed with any minute detail that may be asked. One should be confident about the facts mentioned in the CV. The current affairs and business details must be known, and the CV should be justified relating it. If thorough with the CV, the interview goes well with least problems.

Well Dressed and Punctual:

Any person’s first impression is the last impression. The candidate should be well-dressed and punctual. Positivity is to be displayed from body language. The sitting posture needs to be formal throughout the interview. You should give answers with positive expression, approach and attentive nature. Several times interviewer is interested in a positive approach to a question rather than the correct answer.
