The Panel

When you walk into the virtual room, you’ll be greeted by an interview panel. The interview panel consists of 2-3 ISB PGP alumni who have some idea about your work profile, industry or academics. They have your application in front of them and they know what kind of questions they need to ask.

Expect anywhere between 5-8 questions which would ALWAYS largely fall into the below mentioned themes :

  1. Get a good pitch upfront. 9 out of 10 times it’s going to be your savior in ice breaker question, “Tell me something about yourself”
  2. The panel is interested in knowing your motivations for pursuing the MBA program at this stage of your career
  3. If you have made career switches in the past, be thorough with the reasons why you made a particular switch. It is likely that the interviewer is going to grill you on it.
