ISB interview was tricky part. I prepared for it only through the document shared by Shruti and a bit of google research, reading few forums discussing interview experiences. I felt I was well prepared but IMO it totally depends on your presence of mind, how you handle the conversation, how confident you are, how do you approach any question. All these points helps anyone in the interview to excel. My interviewers were product leaders in their industry and deep dived mainly into: 1) Current work, my startup, challenges I faced, how did I solve them, case study based on my startup experience, management related questions like what one thing would you remove if you were to remove something from the business model canvas. 2) Why ISB, What are the other colleges you compared, Plan B etc.

My experience in the tech space limited my knowledge on the business aspect of things. When I decided to start my own start-up that focuses on providing a community to the elderly and disabled, I was perplexed to know that there is so much that i need to learn as an entrepreneur. My expectation is basically to gain plethora of business acumen and apply the same into my entrepreneurial journey and give back to the society.

Q4 What do you think was the most important decision you took during your application process?

Believing in myself was the most important decision. As if I have not believed on my potential I would have never thought about even applying for ISB. Life has been hard on me in terms of my career progression. But not just me but GoalISb with the experience they had made things possible

 

Q5 What was the most challenging part of submitting your application to different schools? Please discuss how you handled these? Any pointers for future applicants? 

For me, self-introspection on why I want an MBA was the most difficult thing to figure out. That's when GoalISB sent me a questionnaire to fill. It has much nitty-gritty. questions that pushed me to think hard on my profile. And along with that I also had calls with my colleagues from previous organisation which was kind of helpful.

Q6 What was the ISB interview experience like? Did you feel you were well prepared? What all resources did you access to prepare for the interview?

 

The interview process was quite tricky for me. I am an introvert and expressing myself was very difficult on my end. I was not able to structure/frame my emotions well in the mock interviews. But sessions with Shruti Ma'am helped be gain confidence and by the end of the last mock interview session I was able to narrate my viewpoint well to her. I blinded followed Shruti ma'am and her structured framework.

 

Q7 What were the key aspects that you were looking for in an ISB admission consultant?

My profile was very unique. My past experiences were scattered and not coherent. I had gaps in my career. These all pointers made many consultants apprehensive of my profile visibility to the adcom. But I wanted someone who can say that it's still possible to get through ISB.

Q8 What all criteria did you evaluate to choose the ISB MBA?

1) I wanted a b-school that would act as a launchpad to my post MBA goals 2) Place that provides opportunities for leadership development
