For Class starting in Sep 2013
GMAT score: 760
Profile: 4+ years in Economics – Advisory & Research
I was interviewed by CEO of an MNC and President of a Consultancy firm.
Standard Questions: Interviews were conducted at their respective offices and both interviews lasted 1.5 hours each. Interviewers have to fill a certain feedback form and most of the questions are asked from that form. These were:
- Why MBA,
- Why INSEAD,
- What are your short term and long term goals (geographical location/ industry and skills),
- What international experiences have you had,
- How you can add value to classes at INSEAD,
- Explain your career progression etc.
Environment: The interviewers played good cop bad cop. One interview was grilling and the other more relaxed. I was grilled on Why MBA; was asked how/what/why about the current domestic and global economic scenario. The other interview was more conversational and the interviewer discussed life at INSEAD and shared survival tips.
Final Result: Offered admission
