Hi guys, I haven’t received invitation until today. Does it mean that I get dinged or we can expect other interview invites in the next couple of days?

Hi septwibowo , it's been only a couple of business days since I got my interview invite and the period for interviews ends on February 16th so I think that they are still sending invites. Also as it was mentioned in this forum, MBS has received a lot of applications for this deadline.

Sorry I don't know for sure but that's what I think is happening with MBS applications. Maybe someone can provide a more certain answer. But definitely I would not consider you dinged because you have not received an invitation yet.

BTW, do you know that your recommenders submitted their recommendations? Because maybe your application is not complete since the Admissions Office have not received your recommendations yet.

Hi npeirano , thanks a lot! I'm pretty sure that all of my application components have already submitted.

Actually I've asked the admission officer this morning. You're right! They still reviewing my application and will give a feedback at the end of this week. Fingercrossed then!

Hi guys, I have just had my Skype interview with Dr. Heather Spiro, I really enjoyed the interview, she is friendly and conducts the interview in a way that makes you feel comfortable.

The questions I was asked were pretty much the same as the ones that were shared in this forum:

Why MBA? Why now?
Career Progression
Post-MBA goals and how do I plan to achieve them
2 reasons why people want to work with me in a team
2 reasons why people not want to work with me in a team
How would I approach a teammate that is underperforming
How do I add value to the cohort professionally and personally

Finally she asked me about what programme duration I was most interested and told me that they will be doing a final review towards the end of February.

Hope this helps! Good luck to you all!

1. Why choose your job
2. Career progression
3. Why MBA
4. Why Manchester
5. What can u offer to the team-work based community in manchester
6. Something in the presentation, just explain it
7. What will you do just after finish the MBA program
8. Any negative and positive feedback from your boss
9. Anything related to the resume
10. How would I approach a teammate that is underperforming
11. How do I add value to the cohort professionally and personally
12. Duration program I choose and why
13. Any questions to her

Hope this will help.
