Skype Interviewed on: Nov 20 2020 Final Decision: Admitted

"Hi, My interview lasted about 45 minutes. The interview is conversational in nature. The questions are focused on understanding you as a candidate and there are no right answers. At the end, there is an opportunity to ask the interviewer questions yourself. Some sample questions are below: What is your goal? How can Stanford MSX help you? What are your strengths/weaknesses? What advice would you give to a new leader? What leadership traits do you admire? etc. I hope this helps."

Skype Interviewed on: Nov 09 2020 Final Decision: Matriculating

"I had my Skype interview with an alum who lives in the same country. The interview was very informal, the alum mentioned that so far there was no big correlation between what feedback he gave to the AdCom and how the outcome of the admission process was, "therefore let's just have a nice conversation". The interviewer went through the list of 8-10 typical questions "tell me about a time you... contributed intellectually to a project; suggested something innovative; worked in a team; dealt with disagreement; asked about my career vision and followed up on some topics mentioned in my CV like extracurriculars and hobbies. The interviewer allocated enough time for my questions and answered them very honestly. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience, which gave Stanford several points in my mind comparing to HBS."

Skype Interviewed on: Oct 23 2020 Final Decision: Admitted

"Interviewer was just 1-2 mins late to the video call. Started really informally with talking about our days for 3 minutes. Alum interviewer and I were from the same state and region in the US. Questions asked to me in 30 minutes: - Why MBA / Why GSB - Time I showed results - Time I managed different types of stakeholders - Why I moved from [first job] to [current job] - Time I dealt with conflict - Time I made a mistake, as a manager - What questions I ask to people I interview, as a manager - What I want to do after GSB Then I asked questions for 10 minutes: - What interviewer wished they would have done differently about their GSB experience - How they felt about moving to GSB given being from [specific state] We finished in exactly 45 minutes and I thought it went really well since it was so conversational. But the next day or two, upon reflection, I realized I did a really poor job of giving a variety of examples. I mostly focused on my current job and not my first job or outside of work activities, which I should have done. But, it was my first interview so the next interviews I had were much better since I purposefully figured out how to squeeze in related info from undergrad, first job, or upbringing."

Skype Interviewed on: Mar 18 2019 Final Decision: Interviewed

"Hello all, just had my interview. The interviewer was lovely, very conversational and informal. Also very transparent. Now we wait until March 28 - seems like forever. Also one thing we discussed was the brand of MSx vs an MBA and I am a bit concerned about this. Not sure what you guys feel. I only spent 3 weeks (consulting doesn't allow for much) for my test prep and just applied to HBS, MIT and Stanford. I really should have done more research on the MIT programme. As someone already pointed out, their Sloan Fellows programme actually confers an MBA degree - I think that's a huge plus. But I didn't apply to their Sloan Fellows programme and regretting this now. Having said that - Stanford is more of a fit for me in terms of personality, career aspirations and the general ethos of the school. They said they are not thinking about branding the MSx as an MBA anytime soon.... So anyone coming in needs to be well aware of this."

Skype Interviewed on: Nov 15 2018 Final Decision: Admitted

"Interview debrief fro Stanford MSx I thought I should share some tips for those who will soon have their interviews: This interview was a lot more straightforward than I had expected. The interviewer knew everything about my application, had a list of questions prepared beforehand, and tried to cover all of them within 30 minutes. I got around 14 questions covering past experience, post-graduation goals, what I want to get out of Stanford, etc. She also asked some tough questions about my firm and its strategic direction. What was very clear to me during the interview was that they cared a lot about what you want to do after graduation and how Stanford MSx would help you."

"Interview debrief for Stanford MSx To add, the interviewer in my case took specific areas in my statement and asked me to describe in detail the insights I gained. The interviewer also asked me to put myself in the shoes of senior management in my organization, and what I would do in that situation. I also prepared in advance three questions to ask about the program; the interviewer would usually end off by inviting you to ask questions- it is helpful to have some on hand!"

Off Campus with Alumni Interviewed on: Feb 09 2015 Final Decision: Matriculating

"I had my interview yesterday and it was one of the better interviews I've had so far. I'm sharing my experience here and will be keeping it brief, however, if you have any queries I'm available on PM to assist. My interview was initially scheduled earlier last week, and then after being re-scheduled a couple of times finally took place yesterday. It was with an alumnus from Mumbai in a coffee shop and lasted for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Following are some of the questions I can recall 1.Can you explain what you do in your daily work? (Resume walk-through) 2.What would your subordinates say is your leadership style? 3. How do you show leadership at work? Is Leadership and Management the same? (Behavior analysis.. I aced this one I bet..) 4. As part of company X, tell me a time when you were part of a team that did not perform well, how did you contribute... 5.How do you work with people from different cultures? 6. What do your co-workers say is your weakness? 7.How have you overcome this weakness? 8. Why would you choose our school’s MBA program? etc. etc. My interviewer was from a somewhat similar background to mine but had much less upstream experience and more downstream and mid-stream experience.. So once the grilling was done he was genuinely interested to learn much more about upstream services and hydraulic fracturing(my domain of expertise).. we spoke about lot of things from energy sufficiency for india and how i envision the future of shale oil/gas and EOR etc. etc... All in all a pretty good one, wrapped up with him asking me to catch up for another informal meeting sometime soon and that I was headed down the right track in going to Stanford, told me about the energy research institute at Stanford and how i can leverage my functional knowledge too along with business skills gained through an MBA."
