Hey guys , just gave my interview today in Delhi, wanted to share few details. The interview was in two rounds, in the first round we were two interviewees and there were 2 interviewers.
In the second round we were 3 ppl and once again 2 interviewers. They make groups as per the specialization chosen by you. In both the groups I had different ppl .
The questions broadly covered all the topics. They asked me about my current job, why the switch, what roles I was targeting post an MBA. Describe an instance were you had an argument with your colleagues and in hindsight what all you would like to change.

Thanks raul1706

Can you answer the following questions as well

1. Do the interviewers ask questions on the essay or the profile questions you filled up?
2. Can you articulate in detail what are the questions asked in the first interview? How long was this interview?
3. Can you articulate in detail the questions asked in the second interview? How long was this interview?
4. How was the interview conducted, the same questions were asked to all persons in the group? was there cross questioning?
5. Was there any group discussion?

Mostly the questions were from the profile sheet, not much emphasis on the essays.
1st interview was for around 10-12 minutes. They asked to introduce ourselves. Asked questions like , what is the one thing you don't like about job? What is a life lesson you learnt from facing any hardships in your job. They asked me about crude oil prices and current global economics. They also asked me about current tensions between Iran n Britain. I am in the Merchant Navy and sail on oil tankers, so I guess they asked questions about my job.

2 ND interview was around 25 minutes, where they asked me why I chose this profession, and questions relating to my job. Also asked me the kind of roles I was looking for post MBA.

They asked different questions to different candidates depending on the profile. The last question was common to all where they asked us to narrate an instance where we had a disagreement with our seniors or colleagues in the work environment, and would we go back n change the way we behaved?

There was NO group discussion

Hi All,

I see someone mentioned that there are 4 essays during application phase. But I just applied and there were no essays. There were, however, 4 questions that had to be answered and that were not mandatory. Are those the 4 essays mentioned in one of the posts? Also, is it necessary to write 200 words in each, because I have written around 60-70 words in each.

Can you please throw some more light on the interview process. I know that there are 2 interview rounds.
Is there any psychometric or written ability test as well or just the two rounds of interview?

Thanks.

Hey Guys,

As there isn't any detailed interview experience on the thread. Ill be sharing mine

Registration: -
  • As soon as you reach the venue, you will be asked by Adcom to fill in a registration form
  • The registration form consists of 10th, 12th marks, work exp etc
  • For each of the line item you need to add a self attested copy
  • Your name will be called out and you need to visit the adcom who will verify the registration details with the orginal
  • They will take the self attested copy and keep the same with them

Interview: -
  • You will be grouped into the First specialization you selected into groups of three persons each
  • There are two interviews of approx 15-20 mins each
  • Each interview panel has two members

First Interview : -
  • Pitch yourself in 30 seconds?
  • Some questions based on the "Profile sheet" you filled ?
  • Others are asked opinion on the answer suggested by the other candidate?
  • What is the meaning of market share?
  • What is the market share of the company you are working?
  • Situation : - Since 2 years, an FMCG company is going in loss and unable to make profit. What could be the possible reasons
  • Any questions for the Adcom?

Second Interview : -
  • Introduce yourself in 1 minute
  • Some questions after your introduction
  • Why MBA?
  • Situation : - A company is selling a product that is flawed. If you dont sell the product , the company will shut down. Will you sell the product or save the consumers interest?
  • Some questions in the company you are working and the competition? What is the share price?
  • Will you be dependent for JOB on SPJIMR? Will you get a job easily? Why?
  • Any questions for the Adcom?

Some important things to remember for the interview: -
Do's -
  • Dress well. Wear formal blazers
  • Arrive well before the scheduled time
  • Be prepared to be called for the interview at any time. Although the slots are fixed, interview can be +-30 mins before the slot
  • Please keep some questions ready for the interviewer
  • Please be ready with common MBA questions such as Why MBA? Why <your specialization> ? Pitch yourself?

Dont's -
  • Please don't ask the interviewer their names. God knows what are you going to do with that information
  • Please don't ask questions available on the website to the interviewer. Eg: - Guest lectures, when is the result?

Hope the above helps. Let me know if any questions

pikolo2510, Awesome and super-detailed debrief. Thank you! You should, however, have also posted it in interview debriefs section as this post (and thread itself) is likely to get buried under a pile of upcoming posts/threads in coming months but it will remain visible in interview debriefs for coming years. :-) I've done that for you.
