Interview debrief: Feb 13, 2016
Location: Hyderabad

The interview was scheduled for the afternoon. I reached with about an hour to spare and that's plenty!
My panel was running behind the schedule, thanks to some board meeting they had to attend. But this gave me a chance to interact with a bunch of other candidates (well spoken people!)
I was jittery when I arrived but we all quickly got immersed in a chat and by the time they called me in for the interview, I was feeling very at ease.
Given that the interviews are almost unpredictable, one piece of advice that would always work is to interact with the other candidates. Nothing settles you down as well as this does. And who doesn’t want to make new friends?

The interview started with a light moment, thankfully, and from there it was all business. It was a two member panel, the nicest people I have met in a while. They were very well spoken and paid great attention to everything I had to say, even when it was prolonged.


1. (As expected) Take us through your profile: I was preparing to deliver my 30 second pitch, but it somehow turned into a longer response (close to 5 minutes)
Guys so keep a longer introduction ready, just in case!
2. A long discussion ensued here about some of my career decisions. They wanted to know the reasoning behind choices I have made. They seemed to nod in agreement even when I wasn’t completely convinced with my responses (not complaining!)
3. My current work is in Business Intelligence and I am relatively new to this field, and they wanted to know if this was a deliberate shift, at this point in my career ( I have around 6 years of IT and social experience)
4. The exact nature of my current work (very exact here)
5. Post MBA career goals: This area took up the most part of the discussion. We have debated many possibilities with regard to my goals (the industry, function etc.)
It pays to have a clear understanding of what you want to do post your MBA.
There’s no escaping this discussion! No Sir!!
6. Dream Company: Be prepared to answer why that company and what your role is going to be.
7. What if your plans don’t work out: I just responded saying that I have great confidence that I could find employment in the sector I am focusing on (and some stuff about how the PGP will help me in assuring that)
8. Why not join the startup movement which gives you the necessary client exposure, knowledge and experience
9. What would you do if your focus area tanks in the future (Deep learning etc. obviating the need for analytics): I don’t quite remember what happened to this question
10. What if not an MBA
11. Why not opt for a Masters degree in Statistics or some Analytics related subject
12. ISB loves diversity in its class and how would you contribute or add value and diversity to this year’s class?
13. They asked about one of my initiatives at work and what was my part in it.
14. I spoke about my longer term goals (10 -15 years) and said that they are still a little crazy (meaning still vague) and I used that to justify why I wouldn’t opt for a masters in stats etc. and why I need a holistic view of business management.
15. If we were to give you 5 Crore rupees and ask you do as you wish, what would you do? I said I am more patient now and I would wait until I gain the needed experience in my domain before rushing into spend my capital. (I felt wussy, but they nodded somehow)
16. Oh the one word essay was on ‘Fallacy’. (I taught GMAT verbal for some time, so this was an easy one for me)

The interview lasted for about 40 minutes (+ or – 5)

For the most part, I was totally honest with my experiences, my feelings, my fears and my ambitions. I don’t know if it was the wisest thing to do. Guess I will find out! 


Hope!

Regarding the one word essay, What if I don't know the meaning of that word. Can I still browse the internet or is it the end of the game right there? :?:

I wouldn't worry about that! While they may not like you browsing heavily, I don't think they would mind if you were to search for something on your mobile. No one really keeps an eye. It's all about how you can gather your thoughts quickly and articulate.
Browse away, brother!

Starting to see that people who've selected the HYD campus as the interview location have started being called up. Starting to get a bit anxious.

If you've received your ISB interview invite, congrats and all the very best! :)

Are you wondering how to maximize your preparation over the next few days?

How about a chance to undergo an accurate simulation of the ISB interview before you attend the actual interview?

Experience the ISB Interview Rehearsal here - http://bit.ly/20yotcf

And no, this is not just another mock-interview!

1. You will be interviewed by a 3-member interview panel, comprising interview experts and an ISB alumnus who has served on the interview panel of ISB for many years!

2. You will experience a face-to-face interview that will be a very close approximation of your actual ISB interview. You will come dressed in your interview clothes and work on a one-word essay, just as you would on D-Day. What is more – you will receive a video recording of your entire interview, so that you can observe your body language and work on your areas on improvement.

3.You will be evaluated on the same parameters that ISB considers important and receive ISB-specific, actionable feedback from experts who know what it takes to get into ISB.

Sign up here - http://bit.ly/20yotcf , or call us at 9008177800 if you’d like to understand more about how we can help you.

What I have gathered from various sources:

It is an innocuous exercise. A word would be given and one is expected to write about 50-100 words. The words given are usually simple ( such as reward, incentive, etc). Just write freely. Ample time is provided for writing purposes and the work is usually glanced over by the interviewers to confirm that you can write in English. Nothing to lose sleep over.
