Hi,

Has anybody got interview invite? If yes what has been the interview experience. Also can someone provide me a generic feedback about the school and career prospects post MBA from MBS?

I had an interview with Heather Spiro about a month ago, found out I was accepted about a week ago. The interview was about 45 minutes long, she mostly asked questions about "interesting points" of my application. Honestly, she was super friendly and put me at ease. I generally do not consider myself a good interviewer but this interview felt very relaxed and she was very personable. It was a great experience. Feel free to ask for more specific details if you have anything you are curious about!

Congratulations on the admit! I am just reviewing my essays and getting my documents together to submit my application.
Can you shed some light on the presentation that you submitted as part of the application. Struggling a bit on that front.

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.

Had an interview with Dr. Spiro yesterday in Singapore.
In all it was a very good interaction but a detailed one.

The questions based on our cv & slides and some std questions like why mba, why Alliance MBS & about our team management.

She's so friendly so just relax and speak clearly :)

Good luck for you all!

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!
