Debrief posted on  Nov 23 2019 [#permalink] IE, September Intake Class of
Skype Interviewed on: Nov 22 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"I had my interview with a senior associate director of Admissions over Skype. I had already spoken to him before applying to IE to know more about the Tech MBA program. I applied to the IMBA and the newly launched Tech MBA program at IE. My interview went on for one hour I would say. The questions I was asked were: Tell me about yourself Why MBA now? And Why MBA? You have applied to two programs the International MBA and the Tech MBA, what has attracted you to apply to both the programs. If you have to explain about Amazon to a layman how will you explain it? Which Technology do you think will completely disrupt the industries and also the Tech Industries? If you have to explain coding to a 9 year old, how will you explain it? Difference between human intelligence and artificial intelligence? What is your favourite programming language and why? If Amazon were to interview you today, why should they take you? There is a fear going around that Artificial intelligence will take away a lot of the jobs, what is your take on that? Asked me some questions around Randomization. People can pick random numbers, do you think computers can also pick random numbers? Asked me some questions on ethics and AI. Asked me about blockchain, I didn’t have much idea about it so I told him I haven’t got much idea on it. If you have to share with the class a time when you failed and what did you learn from it, what will you share? Asked me about other schools I had applied to and what were my preference and why IE. If you have to tell us about yourself in one sentence as to why we should take you, what will you say in one sentence.. Asked me a bit about my academics, where my school ranks. We spoke a bit about the Financial aid in IE Do you have any questions for me? The interviewer was really engaging and even though I don't feel I did very well in the interview but I just felt good how much deep they want to know you and they test you really well on how you can handle difficult situations. My advice would be to prepare well on the topics of latest technologies and how AI is disrupting the industries if you are applying for the Tech MBA program."

Skype Interviewed on: Feb 20 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"The interview lasted for 45 mins. All the questions are very generic. 1) Tell me your short term and long term goals 2) Why MBA and why IE? 3) What inspired you to do an MBA? 4) How can you add value to the class if admitted? 5) Tell me the biggest challenge you overcome recently and your role in persuading other members during the process. 6) Tell me about your leisure time activities and on what basis you chose them. 7) How did your career evolve? These are the questions asked to me. The interview went very smoothly and the interviewer said I will be informed about the decision, not more than by 2 weeks. Luckily, I was informed in 8 days."

Skype Interviewed on: Nov 10 2018 Final Decision: Admitted

"The interview went as per my expectation. The following questions were asked during my interview with the Associate Director of Admissions Committee: 1. Walk me through your resume 2. Walk me through your professional work experience 3. Tell me about your biggest professional achievement 4. What is the biggest challenge you faced during that and how did you overcome it? 5. What do you like doing outside work 6. If your colleagues were to write a book on you, what would be the title? 7. Tell me how you would contribute to the diversity of the class? 8. Any questions you would like to ask me? I was very fortunate to have worked with Arvind from "Dream School Admit" (https://dreamschooladmit.com/) on my interview preparations. He was very proactive on sending me the basic set of questions I need to have my answers ready on. He has deep insights on how and what the interviewer thinks. We also had a couple of mock interview calls and he pointed out very specific things for me to work on. This was really helpful for me to gain the necessary confidence and context. I wholeheartedly recommend Arvind to anyone looking to get into a Top B school anywhere in the world."

Skype Interviewed on: Apr 27 2018 Final Decision: Admitted

"I had my interview with an IE alumni over Skype. The interview was very conversational and took about 30 minutes. We mainly went over my resume. Some of the questions asked: 1) Walk me through your resume 2) Why MBA? Why IE? 3) You've already been promoted a lot of times. Would you join IE if you get promoted again this year? 4) Do you have any international experience? How will cope up with the class since the student body is very diverse? 5) What are your short term & long term plans? 6) More about my essays( which focused highly on AI, machine learning etc.) : How much do you think we depend on AI and robots now? Do you think this will change? What will be the impacts? 7) Do you have any questions for me? ( I asked a few regarding the labs and career prospects as a foreigner in Spain ) We ended up chatting about his experience at IE and how it had impacted him. Overall, it was very friendly and not much of a psych interview. I was told there might be a second round of interview with the admissions people from Spain. But, got admitted nearly a week after the interview."

On Campus Interviewed on: Nov 01 2017 Final Decision: Matriculating

"My interview took place at IE, with a guy of the admission department. I would split the interview in two parts. First one: The easiest one: Walk me throught your resume, why an MBA?, why IE?, why now? what are your mid and long term goals?... Second one: quite weird and pretty difficult from my point of view . What is 99/2? What is the nearest international airport you have to your city? How many wheels are there right now? Then a practical case. The gave me a some info about a company similar to Netflix. This company had some economic and strategic problems...what plan would you do to improve the situation? (they gave me 5 minuts to think about it). Then...he asked me about inflation, and also asked me to tell him the latest economic news I had read. I guess that, with this part of the interview, they want to see your hability and creativity to face uncommon situations and under pressure. And finally he asked me to tell him everything I knew about the IMBA program, the three different periods, how long they are... To sum up, I would't say that it's a piece of cake at all. Actually I would say that it's one of the hardest interviews I have seen. I recommend you to prepare for it! Best of luck to everyone!"

It was 50 minutes in Madrid. - Tell me about your academic and professional background, in general. - Why an MBA and why now? - Your immediate goals after the program and the long term ones? - If you are to choose 10 people to live with you in an isolated island, what professions would you pick? - what is inflation? - who is adam smith? - what is the GDP of your country? - what is 12*12-10? - who is the president of China? - What languages do you speak? - what is 279/6? - If you have the chance to meet famous person, dead or alive, who would be that person? and why? - How will you be financing your study? I was just myself and straightforward. It turned to be good interview, and have received the offer on Monday."
