Strathclyde interview for MBA admission


phemy

I received an email from Strathclyde business school yesterday that a telephone interview would be conducted for me soon. Having said that, please i will like to know in advance the kind of questions they are likely to ask me because i have never done one before.

Many Thanks.

I was told that this year the school is trying to follow an unorthodox interview pattern wherein they will ask you questions beyond the normal quota of why mba-why now stuff.
The person I was talking to was asked about his favorite vacation spot and what he likes about it, his favorite personality and some regular stuff that you should already know about.
In all, there is not much "educate yourself" type prepration needed for this interview, because preparation might not help much.
I'd suggest that you team up with a friend of yours and practice an interview simulation over phone. That really helps - talking to a phone for an admission interview might be pretty creepy for the first timers.
Also, chalk out what do you want to share with the interviewer when asked about yourself, your professional life and achievements.

Thanks
