Hi Dude,

Congrats on completing the interview and keep you fingers crossed.

I think it will we of great help if you can post the interview questions. Since all the people who interview the prospective students are trained, there must be some overlap in question that interviwers pose. so there is high probability that the other people will also face the same questions.

Thanks in advance.

Happy practicing!




Thank you for the info buddy.. but I am actually following that blog since last few weeks.

are there any other question that are posed to you. something more like behavioural questions.

Thanks in advance


Hi Mahesh,

No questions were asked that you might not have heard of. In fact the post pretty much sums up all. Only different thing I found from Kellogg and Kelley interview was that there were few personal questions as well, related to me and my wife like how will we work things out if I do get in and things like that. It was very conversational and my interviewer did not try to stress me at all.

Inside the Roundtable on Digital Strategies [#permalink]

FROM Tuck Admissions Blog: Inside the Roundtable on Digital Strategies
Image
Image
By Kaia Davis T'16


Kaia is a second-year student at Tuck and an MBA Fellow at the Center for Digital Strategies. This post originally appeared on the Center for Digital Strategies blog.

A week ago, I had the unique opportunity to participate in a session of the Roundtable on Digital Strategies.

The Roundtable on Digital Strategies is a membership that meets four times per year and is designed as a thought-provoking, executive peer-to-peer discussion of the major changes and challenges facing corporate IT. At this joint session of the Americas and European Chapters, academics and business executives from around the world representing a variety of industries and companies such as Chevron, Swarovski,Volkswagen, Levi Strauss, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies debated the topic, “A Digital World: Where Will We Lead Corporate IT?”

The topic largely focused on how emerging tech trends are impacting the organizational design and role of corporate IT departments. Surprisingly, my biggest takeaway from the session was not a specific insight or aha moment around a particular technological strategy. Rather, what struck me was, despite representing various industries, corporate sectors, and countries, each organization represented is broadly facing the same challenges in organizing and evolving their IT teams.

We spent a lot of time pondering the question, “Is the role of IT in an organization that of an enabler or a strategist?” To me, this question boils down to: what ultimately shapes a business model - a business strategy OR tech capabilities? What comes first - wanting to do something OR having the tech capability to do something? Are companies employing specific strategies simply because they have the technology to do so? Are companies that solely employ digital strategies digital companies OR are they companies that use digital strategies to execute their key business strategies?

Defining IT’s role as either an enabler or a strategist has large implications for how IT is organized and prioritized within a company - does the IT team make decisions or enable them? After a quick vote, the room was pretty much split 50/50 - half thought of IT as enablers, the other half as strategists. However, everyone in the room agreed that moving forward IT integration is essential. Rather than having a separate, siloed IT team, members of the IT team need to be integrated into all functional teams to ensure that emerging tech trends and digital strategies are embedded in business decisions. To me, as a business student, the necessary integration of IT into every functions makes an even greater argument for the importance of being aware of emerging trends in the tech industry.

Which way would you vote if asked the same question, “Is the role of IT in an organization that of an enabler or a strategist?" We'd like to hear from you.

Hey,

Just wanted to quickly check with you on 2 points:

1) how is the optional essay to be used.. Can we write about leadership in community initiatives here.. or is it just for weaknesses

2) What is the word limit for the recommendations

Here you go:
"Please respond fully but concisely to the following essay questions. Compose each of your
answers offline in separate document files and upload them individually in the appropriate
spaces below. There are no right or wrong answers. We encourage applicants to limit the
length of their responses to 500 words for each essay. Please double-space your responses."

1) They have a list of examples, I think it will be unwise to use optional essay for anything else
"(e.g., unusual choice of evaluators, weaknesses in academic performance, unexplained job gaps or
changes, etc.)"

A lot of schools give these negative examples.. But students use the optional essays to convey their candidature in a more well rounded manner.. AND it is also viewed positively by the schools.. This is also the case with Wharton.. I guess I'll just have to wait till the adcoms are back in office on Monday in Hanover..

I just had my on-campus interview. Here are the questions:
1. walkthrough resume, follow-up questions with my extra-curriculum activities
2. short/long term goal
3. why mba
4. why tuck
5. how will you contribute to tuck
6. tell me about a time you worked with other people
7. a time you failed
8. your leadership style/your role in a team
9. your strength/weakness
10. Q for interviewer


I don't feel my interview went well because when I was talking, the interviewer had no response or any facial expressions.
And I sent thank you note to the interviewer, got a only response "good luck with your applications". Is this really a bad sign? :-(

Keep in mind, these interviews are meant to generate data points for who you are as a candidate. I think the interviewer's lack of response was likely due to their focusing on how your answers synthesized to the data they needed to record.

I have spoken with several students who admitted feeling their interviews were a total flop from the lack of chemistry. As long as you were prepared and represented yourself accurately, you did your best - rest in that.

Keep your head in the game!

I'm applying for the Nov round and had some quick questions on the global experience section. the 300 word "Briefly list all experiences you had of working studying or travelling abroad...." how have people approached this? Is this the global experience essay or is this literally a list. All my others essays are ready, I am just confused with this question.

Thanks!

On my campus visit, one of the other applicants asked about this section and the admissions representative said it should be a bulleted list with a short description to provide context for each item. She also explained that it can involve anything from vacations, to study abroad, to working with international team members and partners.

I have a query. I received the completion review email from Tuck around 10 days back but the status of my application still shows Awaiting material.

Is this something to be worried about? Should I contact them for changing the status? Does this mean they have not started reading my application?
