Hi dkvs007,

You would ideally get an invite from them 10-15 mins before the scheduled time.
I got an invite for 6th as well. What's your profile like? Do you expect a certain type of questions?

Hi,

It doesn`t mean that we are dinged. Probably, they would have released the first list.

So, we have no option now than to wait and watch.

Cheers

Hi Erabm1439s,

Eventhough I haven`t got a call from NTU, I have had my fair share of mba interviews.

So, I will tell what I know from my experience.

MBA interview preparation is similar to doing a work out - Core and supplementary.

Core Questions in any interview (80% of the questions)
1. Your career progress (tell me about yourself)
2. Why MBA?
3. Why now?
4. Why NTU?
5. Why not NUS?
6. Why Singapore?
7. Goals - Short and long
8. Hobbies?
9. What can you bring to the class?
10. Strengths and weaknesses
...

Supplemental questions can be any behavioral related questions

1. How do you work in teams?
2. Have you ever faced a situation in which team was going nowhere and what you did to streamline?
3. Conflict resolution scenarios
4. Leadership scenarios you have faced
.....

These are few example questions. I think this set applies to any business school and more often than not majority of the questions revolve around this.

Good Luck and please do share your experience so that thread members can prepare in accordance with it.

Cheers
Balaji

All the best to everybody with an interview invite!

My 2 cents for the interview preparation -
a) Be thorough with why MBA and why an MBA at this time specifically. Especially if you're a younger candidate with ~3 years of WE, make sure your response is articulated properly, tying back to your goals.
b) Goals - short and long
c) Relevant industry knowledge (I'm in e-commerce and I was asked quite a few questions on how the e-comm industry is doing in the Asian markets, my company's plans/performance in the asian markets, competitors, etc.
d) Why should you be selected and how would you add value to the batch (your value proposition)
e) Employment plans and back-up plan

Interviews generally last for 30 min (+/-5 min). Make sure you're able to effectively communicate your clarity of thought. Finally, smile and try to have a great time :)

All the best for all those who are invited for the interviews. Glad if you could share your experiences after you have your interviews.
Others any updates? I see only 3 invites from the group. March 8th is not so far, is this the end of the road for us?.

Hi,

Let`s wait till we get any confirmation. Hopefully, I believe that they would update our status in the portal.

Hi drashi17,

I too feel that the chances are bleak.

But Let`s wait and watch.

Thanks a lot Balaji!

These pointers were certainly very useful as all the questions did revolve around them. One tip that I would like to share with people who get an invite is to do a thorough research on the program and how it'll fit into your plans. Clarity on your goals would really help you. Also, if you can talk to a couple of students currently at NTU or alums, that would give you an edge.

Hope this helps!

In addition, they mentioned that we'll hear back from them in around 2 weeks. So there's still hope for those who haven't heard from them yet. :D
