Sandy’s Latest Mock MBA Interview

Fridays With Sandy

In this  second episode of Fridays With Sandy, HBSGuru Sandy Kreisberg does yet another mock MBA interview with a soon-to-be candidate for a top business school’s MBA program. He shows how to answer such key questions as:

  1. Walk me through your resume
  2. Talk about three accomplishments at work
  3. Introduce yourself to your classmates
  4. Tell us about your peak college experience
  5. What motivates you at work
  6. Why do you want to attend our MBA program
  7. And more….. . .

The video was done live between HBSGuru Sandy Kreisberg and a soon-to-be applicant from Edinburgh, Scotland, to several major business school programs, including London Business School and IESE Business School in Spain. But it could apply to any mock interview at any leading business school. Every Friday at 2 p.m. EST, join us on the Poets&Quants’ Facebook page for this series.
