I know I don't post much but this forum was so helpful in my grad school prep I thought I would contribute with my interview experience!

Had my interview tonight at 7PM; actually just finished up about a half hour ago.

Interviewer was John Hughes, a very cordial and welcoming man who made me feel at ease. He initiated the call about 5 min early, as I was already online with Skype and sitting at my desk going over some notes. When he called, I had a moment where I froze and thought "OH MAN I'M SO UNPREPARED" but I pulled it together, accepted the call, and took a deep breath...

The interview itself was wonderful! John was incredibly warm and conversational and overall is an excellent interviewer. He seems to have a natural ability to set people at ease and get them engaged in the conversation.

Here are the questions I can remember he asked:

Where are you from/tell me about your hometown?
What activities did you engage in during high school?
Walk me through your resume.
If I had a conversation with your favorite recommender, how would he answer these two questions?
What two single words would you use to describe AFMan916?
What would you say AFMan916 should improve upon?
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Do you feel your GMAT and GPA are truly representative of your abilities?
What are your short term goals?
What is your ultimate long-term goal (in 30 years, things have gone according to plan, what are you doing?)
You've been given an impromptu day off, how do you spend it?
Why Kenan Flagler?
Why MBA?
Any questions for me?

Overall, a wonderful experience and great interviewer. For those of you who have the privilege of speaking with John Hughes, you're in for a treat!

Guys... I have been given a new leadership role in my team. Though its not a promotion, but more like formal increase in my responsibilities. I was hoping to tell the same to the ad-com team. What will be the right way to do so? Should I email? If yes, then to whom?

Also, is it okay to communicate this to ad-com, even if it is not a promotion, but a formal increase in my responsibilities?

PS : My interview is already completed.

Yes, do mention it to the admissions team by sending them a mail. However, as its not a promotion then do talk about any challenge you faced in this leadership role or something you learned through this leadership experience. You can also talk about what style you have adapted as a leader.

As you suggested, I should just drop an email to the admissions team, explaining about my role and my experiences. What if that mail goes un-noticed? What I mean to say is do they take care of such mails when they make decisions about admissions? Isn't there any formal way to do that?

Well most universities will ask you to do the same, but I would suggest you could drop a mail to the admission committee or give them a call and ask for the way to include your recent achievement in your profile.

FROM Kenan- Flagler Admissions Blog: MBA Community Service Day: A Lesson in Community and Teamwork
Image
Written by Lauren Braswell, MBA 2015


As I found myself with one foot in North America and another in the Pacific Ocean, I realized I was quite literally having a global experience that Saturday as an incoming MBA student at the UNC Kenan-Flagler School of Business. My fellow MBA students and I were in the Frank Porter Graham Elementary School courtyard hard at work painting a mural of the world.

How on earth (pun intended) did we get here?

Eager to begin the next phase of our lives as MBA students, many of my classmates and I chose to attend summer classes in preparation for the demanding courses slated for the fall. Along with the opportunity to begin forging friendships with our future classmates, we were also lucky to participate in this summer’s MBA Community Service Day.

Frank Porter Graham Elementary School, a school that encourages cultural awareness while ensuring that all students are bilingual and biliterate in English and Spanish, was a perfect volunteer option for the MBA Community Service Day. As we MBA students embarked on the next phase of our education and global careers, the school’s mission aligned with Kenan-Flagler’s own atmosphere of diversity and cultural understanding.

The UNC Kenan-Flagler core values of community and teamwork were in full display that Saturday. Our task was to repaint a faded mural located in the school’s outdoor activity area. In addition to being faded by the elements, recent storms had coated the mural with dirt and debris. While the large majority of volunteers had never painted a mural before, our team approached the challenge with the enthusiasm, dedication, and collaboration I’d come to expect from my peers.

Our morning volunteers handled preparing the space for the new mural, which included sweeping, washing, and priming the concrete. Some volunteers spent hours in the hot sun painting, some volunteers made additional supply runs for more paint, and some volunteers stayed later than expected to ensure the mural was completed successfully. I personally enjoyed getting to know my classmates even better by having some fun doing good for our community.

By the time we finished the mural in the early evening, we had brightened the courtyard with (Tar Heel) blue and cream paint. The incoming students now had an inviting place for lessons in the courtyard. The vice principal was pleased by our work and noted that parents and students would certainly enjoy the new activity space.

All in all, I would say that MBA Community Service Day was a success. Upon the completion of our degree, my classmates and I will embark on careers across the world. But for now, we can all look forward to working side-by-side to make our community a little brighter.

FROM Kenan- Flagler Admissions Blog: Global Business Project: Navigating Innovation & Culture in Brazil
Image
Written by Bridget Brennan, MBA 2014

After months of preparation, it was tremendously exciting to finally be off to Brazil! All GBP teams launched the in-country portion of their projects by gathering in one city prior to dispersing to client locations. The Hub City Weekend for us brasileros was held in Porto Alegre, and graciously hosted by GBP partner university UNISINOS. Porto Alegre is in the south of Brazil, and though famous for its gaucho (cowboy) culture, is also home to many thriving businesses, including SAP and Grupo RBS, who were both GBP clients and Hub City sponsors. Compared to the beach-town vibe of Rio, which I visited prior to the project launch, and lively, expansive, and traffic-choked São Paulo, where our project was based, Porto Alegre offered a different variety of Brazilian city— a smaller, walkable place with a strong European influence owing to waves of German and Italian immigrants.

The Hub City weekend kick-started us into our Brazilian mindset. We heard presentations on the Brazilian legal system, history, and culture. We reconnected with our fellow GBP participants, eagerly chatted about how the virtual portion of the projects had gone, and discussed plans for completing the projects in-country. We toured the RBS headquarters, and took a stab as Brazilian TV hosts. We asked questions about innovation and the Latin American market to a panel at SAP featuring GE Healthcare. We also ran around town on a scavenger hunt that goaded us into practicing our Portuguese (I found myself carrying on a stilted conversation with some locals about their dog!)

From Porto Alegre, we dispersed to our respective project locations. For some teams, this meant heading off to agricultural or industrial parts of Brazil. For us, it meant flying into Sao Paulo, and getting settled in the hotel where we were set up for the next two weeks…we got to know the lobby area well for team meetings! We were a short cab ride away from our client site, and found that we had a dedicated conference room onsite…which we got to know quite well too! However, our project also got us out into the city; several of us attended sales calls to observe sales tools and techniques and interview sales representatives. We incorporated those findings into our final recommendations.

We worked very full days throughout our time in Sao Paulo, including on the weekends, but we also fit in time for some delicious food, some dancing, and, of course, caipirinhas. We made our final presentation to several company executives, including key managers in Brazil, and stakeholders in the US via teleconference from headquarters. They were keen to ask us questions about our findings, insights, and recommendations. They expressed enthusiasm for our ideas, and gratitude for our hard work. It was tremendously gratifying to have contributed to the company’s vision for its future. On a personal level, GBP exceeded my expectations in everything it promised: cultural immersion, business learning experience, and relationship building. I’m just glad that my Brazilian visa is good for 10 years, so that it will be easy to return!
