Hello all,

I have been selected for an interview at IE so was wondering if I could get any tips on the type of questions that I could be asked?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Cheers.

I had my interview last week and it was very pleasant. I am from Germany and had no choice to do an interview on campus; therefore got an skype interview.

Questions
- Walk me through your CV and start with the first post graduate work experience
- What do you do at your current job?
- Why MBA?
- Some specific questions on my CV in terms of living abroad
- Question ie should have asked and I put in the application
- What country i would choise to travel and why?
- Situation: 6 person on a team, deadline for an assingment tomorrow morning, 3 agree with a approach to finish the assignment, 3 disagree, you are not able to catch the 3 people who disagree. What do you do?

Hi!

I'm from Germany as well. My IE interview was pretty similar. Ironically I had to go through two of them. Apart from usual question I got some of these:

- What is better to be effective or efficient?
- What is 99/2? (amaizing)
- What would I improve on the IE Business School?

Hi Hegemon,

Do you mind sharing your experience with the second interview? Did you get accepted to IE?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Yowie91,

yes, I got accepted and am currently enrolled. The second interview was some kind of clarification of several points from my CV. For example IE wanted to know why I did recently change my employer. Further questions were about my people leading experience as well as how would I act in particular hypothetical situations.

All in all, the second interview was clearly shorter (it took only 30 minutes - in comparison with more than 1 hour in the 1th) and less formal.

I hope it helps. Don't hesitate to contact me in case of further questions.

Best,
Hegemon

Hi Hegemon,

Thanks for your fast reply. Did you have experience in finance prior your enrollment in IE? They asked me several financial questions, which I don't think I answered very well due to my lack of experience in Finance. Hopefully, I'll do better in the second round. How's life as an IE MIF student? And how's the job offer after you graduate?

Thanks for all your advice and insight!

Hi!

Finance? Isn't it a MBA-Forum? I applied for the International MBA program, not for the Masters in Finance.

Hi Faheem,

there is no preference of neither test. If you do well in IEGAT there's no need for GMAT. Otherwise you have to take the GMAT scoring about 680.
In terms of the interview I would advise you to be very well informed about IE School and your own CV / plans.

Best,
Hegemon

Faheem,

read my posts above. The majority of questions was about IE MBA (Why IE, why now, targets) and my CV.

I strongly encourage to read Montauk's "how to get into the top mba programs". All the questions are detailed there.

Dear Hegemon

I think what you are saying is too much are you talking about master in management or mba. Tuition fees for master in management is 30200 euro and living expenses would amount to 15000 euros at ,max for 1 year.You are saying too much dear just have a look and correct me if i am wrong.


Kind regards

I'm talking about MBA program. The program itself costs about 60K. Additionally you need ca. 1.5K each month on living expenses. Madrid is a pricy city.
