On my friend's recommendation (who received an admit from ISB), I too approached Gyanone for MBA application and interview preparation.

Right from the consultation regarding schools to interview preparation, Gyanone team provided me an honest feedback.

Gyanone provided personalized attention, with several rounds of review on each and every aspect of the MBA application.

Needless to say all the efforts paid off, I received admission offer from CUHK with a scholarship.

I would like to give my sincere thanks to Gyanone for their advice and support throughout my application process.

I will definitely recommend their services to candidates who are planning to apply for MBA program.

Hi Pranab,

I was interviewed on the 13th, awaiting final decision now. The discussion usually goes on for at least an hour, but mine was the last of the day, and one of the panellists had to catch a flight, so my interview took place for only 40 mins.

Still, a lot of questions were asked. Why MBA? Why CUHK? Why now?
Some of the questions were specific to my professional career: Why so many job changes? Kind of roles that I have taken? Methodologies followed while working? etc.

Some questions were regarding my personal life: Discussion on why I am currently a stay at home dad? How will I finance my MBA? How have I planned for the time when I would be away from my family? etc.

Overall, be prepared for a discussion rather than an interview lasting an hour. Be thoroughly aware of what you have written in your application and your future aspirations. The panel gives you the opportunity to express yourself and drive the interview by way of your answers.

Hope this helps.

BR,
Rahul

Hi,
I am new to this thread and really wanted to understand certain points - I choose to opt for CUHK MBA 2018-2019 (12 months)
After giving several attempts at GMAT, with my heart bleeding as hell I could secure only 620 (Q - 49, V - 25, IR -6).

If some one can please review and let me know if I stand a chance for CUHK (I do not wish to give GMAT further as my levels have saturated after many attempts)
Following is my profile -
Total Work Exp - 8yrs
Growth in profile -
1. Launched the 3G network for a leading telco in India in 2008
2. Launched a Malaysian retail brand in India in 2014 with 2 outlets in the South
3. Currently, handling a pan India business growth for one of the products of a leading firms in India
4. Launched an e-commerce company attracting a seed funding and aiming to expand to South East Asia
5. Got published in 1 book which is still selling in Amazon, Flipkart and few retail stores in India, U.S. and India., the 2nd book will be published in Aug(most likely)

Extra Curricular - Participation in Athletics & Football (District Level), Playing Guitar, Mouth Organ & Flute
