What to reply interview questions such as..... [#permalink] New post 03 May 2010, 08:18
Hi

Would request you to help over some questions in asked in interview. This question are very usual but important for me. Following are the questions and my concerns:-

1. How are you going to finance your MBA.
Can I reply to this question straight forwardly and say "Since the financial conditions of my family is not that good, I would definitely finance my complete tution fees through loans. If assited by the scholarship from institute, it would be of great help."

2. Have you applied any where else?
If I have applied and I have got an admit, then should I mention that Or should just say "no I havent applied any where else."


-Regards

Matt,

1) You can reply that you intend to finance your education largely through loans if you do not receive a scholarship. I wouldn't go into the family situation. It is unnecessary.
2) You can say you applied elsewhere and where you applied and not mention the admit.

Best,
Linda

Hi Linda

Thank You!

Another question:-

3) Why MBA?
Along with other things like knowledge and platform, can I mention about the financial boost to the career i.e. increased salary in my answer.

Matt,
Increased salary is assumed. It doesn't add anything their knowledge of you. I wouldn't mention it.

Best,
Linda
