Skype Interviewed on: Dec 01 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"I remember jumping with excitement after I got the mail for the interview. I had my interview after 4 days during which I had to travel a lot so didnt have much time to prepare. But I was sure of my goal and about who I am as during my traveling I had a lot of time in flight or car to introspect on why i need MBA and what makes me stand out. It wasn't an interview rather a very casual talk as if I met someone at a restaurant who wants to know more about me. I was so comfortable that I even spoke very long for some points but my interviewer very patiently and keenly listened to whatever I said. My interviewer was very friendly and gave me room to express myself and took interest in getting to know me, which made me more relaxed. So be sure of why you want to do MBA, what makes you unique, how you can contribute to the class, the school and the society and how well can you fit in the industry you want. Introspect, be yourself (Seriously!), back your answers with situations or reasons for that. Talk with alumni to get to know the school better to find your fit. Being nervous is ok, but believe me, it is worth it."

On Campus Interviewed on: Nov 01 2018

"This was my first visit to the school, but not my first to the city. The MBA program is situated in one building, but the school has seven campuses across Copenhagen. The MBA building is in Frederiksberg, which is a little bit west of the downtown city, but there is a good amount going on by the campus. I have visited a couple masters programs before, I was accepted into the MsF programs at Villanova and Boston College, but passed up on those to work, and the structure is pretty different at CBS. The MBA program is a cohort of one class, you are with the same 30-40 people in all of your classes and your classes are typically 9am-12:15 and then 13:00-16:15. Because this is a one-year program, the class curriculum is very different than a USA two-year program as the classes last about a month, though they have a year round leadership class. On to the class experience, I was able to join in on a managerial accounting class that was mostly a lecture, but ran through exercises as a group for verifiable understanding. It seemed pretty basic to me, but it was one of the first classes, and I have a background in the study. The students are extremely collaborative, very accepting of humanities degrees, and students will tutor those that are unfamiliar or are coming from degrees outside the given class. Probably the friendliest classroom experience I've ever had, every single student came up to me, introduced themselves, and I was able to see some of the demographics of the class. The class has a ton of experience, the average work experience was between 6-8 years, while I am coming in with two years. The professor was easy to understand, was engaging and seemed to enjoy student input which was good. The class was relaxed and didn't seem extremely competitive or cut-throat. Some notes on the school, it has two very big tracks for post-grad; sustainable business (Alt. Energy) and entrepreneurial (Start-ups). The year-round leadership class has a focus on sustainability, as well as due to the lack of opportunity to be an summer associate with a one year program they do an advisory board program where groups of 4 students partner with a Copenhagen start-up to advise them on certain situations. I know of several students in the class with a start-up in Europe already, so it seems to be a main point within the program. Their recruiting companies tend to be local, so consulting is a strong option, as PE and IB with the start-ups in the area, though the transactions will be smaller. I hope this helps give a little insight, I am looking to work PE post-grad in Copehagen, but am still working on a refresher of my Danish, good luck to anyone applying!"

Skype Interviewed on: Feb 03 2014 Final Decision: Interviewed

"Experience: It was a great experience for me. I got the opportunity to elaborate myself who I am how could I contribute to new class and how I developed my leadership skills while working at several companies. The interview was more conversational than a formal interview is. It created the sound environment to position myself than getting nervous. I graduated from CBS in 2015. Suggestions: 1) Try to be yourself 2) Explain yourself who you are and how could you contribute to the new class. 3) Focus on your strength and give proper examples. 4) Whatever answers you will give must be supported by nice examples. Examples should be in SCAR form ( S=Situation, C= Challenges, A= Action & R=Results). It means that answers should be structured, so it would be easier for interviewers to understand you, especially if you are a non-native speaker. 5) Research lot about the School website, talk with old students. It could help you to show your motivation. Having strong motivation could be often a deciding factor for CBS MBA apart from your professional experience. 6) Try to show your leadership skills through examples. & 7) Research on two X-Factors of CBS that "Leadership Discovery Process" and Integrated Strategy Process". For this, you may talk with few alumni. If you also explain well while giving the interview. Your chances will be high to get in. All The Best Guys! Hope it would help you!"
