The interview went well, it took about 40 mins. Heather asked about your cv, essays, and presentation. I think you should prepare about your strengths and weaknesses. Most importantly, why mba and why manchester. Good luck Manish!


Thanks fandyrachmanto for sharing the experience. this should immensely help others :thumbup:

I just showed myself outside of my school/work experience. I had slides on things that I think show how I'm unique (i.e. volunteer experience, family life, other interests, etc.) I put 3-4 pictures and a few captions on each slide. I'm sure there are other (probably better) ways to do it, but I liked how it turned out.


Thank you for your feedback. I saw this a little late but I too submitted the presentation that showed a more personal side and less focused on the professional front.

I submitted my application on the 15 Nov but my professional references have still not submitted the online feedback. Hope this isn't a big cause of concern?

Any tips for the essays? I saw that their word count is a minimum, so I just wanted to see around how long your essays were.

Thanks!

But that 500 word count is the minimum. Maximum can be anything I guess. I am trying to keep the word count to around 750.

What I meant is a 500-800 kind of range. One question says 300 words min, and the other is 500 words min.
