London Business School MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Alumnus / Off-Campus

I received the interview invitation around 30 days after submitting my application to round 2, with my interviewer (alumnus) contact details. The interviewer was very prompt in replying and offering flexible dates to schedule the interview, which took place 10 days after the initial contact.

Overall, the interview was very friendly and established a personal contact in the first few minutes. He had already had access to my complete application package.

Main questions were:
1) Walk me through your resume. Focus on your most significant challenges and the accomplishments that make you most proud.
2) Tell me about a failure in your professional history. How did you overcome it? What did you learn?
3) What do you want to do after the MBA?
3) Why LBS?
4) How will you help your group/class? How will you contribute to the school?

Presentation
– It was the final portion of the interview. I had 5 minutes to read through the materials, 5 minutes to prepare, 5 to present. Theme was around a new strategy for a PE group. I believe setting out a clear structure, speaking clearly and breaking down the presentation into its components was even more important than the content itself.

After the questions, we spent another 20-30 minutes chatting about the school, the life in London and his experience at LBS.Interview 3
