Hello,

What is the best way to answer this question in the interview? How long should it be? Should this also include why MBA?

This answer should always be related to the job. Remember, although the employer is asking personal questions, they are still all related to "what can you bring to the company?" So, I usually give adjectives like reliable, loyal, etc., but make sure you back these with supporting examples. The most important thing is to make sure you boil it all down to presenting the answer in a way that it matches the things the employer is looking for.

Hi, Niladri. This really is just an icebreaker question for you to tell about who you are and what you've been doing with your life. I like it to include the things that are important to who you are: your education, your general career path, possibly some highlights or awards that are relevant to the main ideas of who you are. Your answer should really only be about 3 minutes long - that's a long time to be talking straight through - though it might spark additional questions from the interviewer if s/he's interested in something that you mention.
Good luck with the interview!
