"I had my interview on March 27th. The alumnus was focusing a lot on my weaknesses, what challenges I faced, the times when I failed. Following were the questions that she asked. - How long have you been working in your company? - What is it that you do in your day to day job? What do you like about your job? What do you hate about your job? - Tell me about a time in your life when you thought you failed. How did you deal with it? - Tell me something which you really want to improve about yourself? - If you had to do it all over again, what would you want to choose as a career path? - What is your long term dream? What do you aim to become? - If you get into the program, what do you think will be a challenge? - What is that you will are scared of, about the MBA? Overall, I believe I did it well. Hoping for the best! Fingers crossed."

"Super friendly interview with a member of the admissions team over MS teams platform. A few of the Questions: 1) Where have I joined from? 2) Introduction about myself. 3) Branched off questions from my response to previous one such as: What was my role in that project? 4) Short term and long term goals. 5) Obstacles that I may face to meet the short term goals. 6) Did I speak with any alumnus? What did they tell me about the programme? 7) What other schools did I apply to and why would I choose SDAB among them? 8) What would my boss say would be my weaknesses? 9) What do I do in my free time? 10) Subjects that I liked in my undergrad. 11) Why do I want to do an MBA? I felt quite comfortable during the interview, the interviewer put me ease right at the beginning stating that it was going to be easy. At the same time, some of the questions such as “Why SDAB” and “What are your weaknesses” were asked in a challenging way as can be seen in question no. 7 and 8. No curveball questions like, “tell me about a time when you handled conflict in your team.” Tips to future candidates: 1) Speak slowly as the interviewer is not a native English speaker and your accent may not be understandable to them. 2) Be ready with a few more stories or points for each of the answer, apart from the main one, in case the interviewer asks for more. The interview lasted 45 minutes which included a question that I had asked and was discussed in detail, and two other questions which I had asked but were tabled for later. Best wishes to future candidates! Reach out to me if you need help."

"--Interview Tips Shared by Former SDA Forum Moderator-- Be yourself, know your profile in depth (ie, strengths and weaknesses) and get ready to support the story you unravelled in your essays. Engage your interviewer, make the interview as much interactive as possible (but remember to be polite and professional). Dress properly, as MBA interviews have their own dress code. Bring your CV with you, as well as a copy of your application. Remember that the adcoms want to know that you can both make it through the program, which is very demanding, and become an important asset for the school - in other words, succeed in your post-MBA career. As long as your answers help the interviewer understand that you are such a person, you'll be fine."
