FROM Copenhagen Students Blog: Tips from a successful student: How I nailed the personal interview
by Daniel
The headline
here is rather a big overstatement - at times where I desperately thread water
and do my best just to keep my head above the water line, I couldn’t feel less
like the successful student. However, the work load oscillates and when you
have pulled through and written that 10-page assignment in just 2 days, life
feels very good. In my point of view, life is all about the contrasts, and my oh
my, does the MBA give us exactly that!
So, the
personal interview..
It was last April, a couple of weeks after I had submitted my application, that
the Admission Manager for the Programme, Thuli, replied with an email and asked
if we could schedule a telephone call later that week. This was just an initial
phone call to discuss my submission, as well as go-through a couple
of details in my profile, but  I still remember that my heart skipped a
beat when I read the email. I got the impression that I had passed the initial
screening and that it was now up to me to show that I deserved a spot
in the year’s program.
The phone call
was nothing to be scared of as Thuli was warm and welcoming, and we had a
good conversation about my education, my motivations for doing an MBA, my
future plans, and my stuttering. Nine out of ten times I “disclose”
the stuttering in the beginning of a conversation with a new acquaintance , and
this time was no exception. I do this to address the “elephant in the
room” so to say, and this both lowers my stress level, and most often the
other party’s as well. The phone call was brief, but enlightening, with
regards to what I could expect in the coming year if I got in. I was also invited to the campus by Thuli, so that I could sit in on a lecture and meet the staff
in person. I didn’t have the opportunity to do this myself, but those who did told
me later that this just reassured them that they wanted to go for the Full-Time
CBS Programme, and that it helped them to mentally prepare for the workload to
come. Most of them also had their personal interview while visiting the campus
in spring. This is highly recommended!
Following this, I got an email inviting me to the official personal
interview the following week. It went by very fast and Gitte was just as warm and welcoming
as Thuli. If I should give some specific advice it would be the same clichés as
always; be yourself, be honest and sincere, show motivation and just relax.
Like all interviews prepare briefly with some background information you think
can be valuable, make an outline of what you would like to convey, but all
in all keep it natural and conversation-like.
One final piece
of advice though, be certain you are motivated for this. It is A LOT of hard
work, to some points ridiculously difficult, but in the end you will reap the
benefits of your hard work and get a pretty fancy degree on top of your former
experience. And not to say the least, get some new life-long friends and a
really valuable network.
ridiculously difficult, I still haven’t got my head around Miller & Modigliani
2nd preposition, and with the Corporate Finance exam in less than 16 hrs I
better get to it.  Sayonara!
