I have been admitted on the LBS track too. From what I understand about the presentation round from speaking to people, the presentation round is to confirm whether they would like to admit you or not if they aren't too sure about you as yet.

Hi All,

So got my interview on Monday (first interview).
Any tips? It seems it's kind of the classic job interview with HR where you discuss you back ground, work experience etc.
I'm expecting the two classic "why an MBA" "why now" and "why HKU", any curve ball or something?

Also, didn't find much info on schoolarships. Where eventually we will know something?

Thanks,

Stefano

Hi,

Here's my interview experience. I had one round of interview, it lasted 30 minutes. Here are some questions I was asked and I expect the interview pattern to be about the same:

1. Tell us something about yourself: Introduce yourself, where you are from, your educational and professional background. Keep it short- about 2 minutes and be aware that the next question would be framed from your answer. So prepare leading answers.

2. Why MBA, why HKU. Make sure you are in line with what you have written in your essays and be sure of your story

3. What is the current state of the Indian economy in your opinion? (I have a background in Economics, so it was relevant but I think they do ask a couple of questions on current affairs)

4. Discussion of my hobbies, extra curriculars, social work: They asked at least 3 questions related to these. I am passionate about my eca's and it was reflected in my CV. They are interested in knowing more about you and what excites you

5. What did you learn from your colleagues?

6. If you could change one thing in your life right now, what would it be?

7. Questions for us.

For two questions, I took my time to think and answer the questions and not just jump to any answer. Overall, I had a great interview experience. Just be confident, smile and speak from the heart!

Hi,

HKU decides on the merit-based scholarship once you have been admitted. You don't need to apply for them. I don't know about other forms of scholarships, though.

Hi guys,

So I had my interview this morning.
Questions were:
- I see you already have a solid educational background why do you want to do an MBA?
- Please describe you professional background
- What kind of leader are you?
- I see from your CV that you work with the COO of your client's company. What do you do with him?
- I see from your CV you have been involved in the hiring process of your company. What qualities are you looking for when hiring?
- Questions for us

Very relaxed enviornment. I liked the interview process a lot.

Good luck!
