MBA Mock Interview With A Humanist

You would be hard pressed to find a more non-traditional MBA candidate.

Melissa earned a Phd from Barnard College in music and then taught music at both the graduate and undergraduate level for several years. Then, she took a detour from academia and went corporate. She now works in digital marketing and analytics for a publishing company in New York. She manages a team of people who help in audience development for several media brands, including the challenging of reaching C-suite executives.

Get Sandy Kriesberg's advice to make handicapping your odds of getting in possible

Sandy Kreisberg, founder of HBSGuru.com

After scoring 710 on practice GMAT tests, she’s preparing to apply to several MBA and EMBA programs over the next year. Her goal is to ultimately gain a more strategic role.

In today’s Fridays With Sandy Facebook Live broadcast, Melissa was on the receiving end of a mock interview by HBSGuru Founder Sandy Kreisberg. Every Friday at 2 p.m. EST, Sandy appears on our Facebook page to do either a live mock interview or a live handicapping session with a prospective MBA student. These are tell-it-like-it-is live consulting sessions that provide an inside look at how candidates can best present themselves to highly selective business schools, either during their admissions interview or in their MBA applications.

As always, Sandy is direct and candid with real applicants. So the sessions provide lots of highly valuable lessons for both the candidates who accept his advice and the general audience.

See the blow-by-blow mock interview, available only to registered users of Poets&Quants.
