Preparing for Your MBA Interview with mbaMission

Interview season is now in full swing for Round 1. If you are among the limited pool of business school candidates to have made it to this often nerve-wracking phase of the admissions process, you will undoubtedly be wondering how best to prepare. As with the essays, no one-size-fits-all approach will guarantee that your candidacy is presented in the best light—sharing your story in a compelling way and demonstrating your fit with the school will for the most part require you to think on your feet. However, you should take some crucial steps to familiarize yourself with common interview questions, refine your talking points and build the confidence needed to make your interview successful.

We at mbaMission offer a selection of Mock Interview Services geared to provide guidance and personalized feedback every step of the way. Whether you are preparing for Wharton’s team-based discussion, a video essay/interview or a more conventional live, one-on-one interaction, we have customized a variety of in-depth preparation sessions led by experienced consultants.

  • Individual Mock Interviews—conducted either in person (depending on the availability of our consultants in your location) or remotely via phone or Skype—are tailored to match the interview format of your target school, allowing you to practice responding to actual questions that have been posed by the school’s interviewers to our previous applicants.
  • Our Video Essay and Video Interview Prep Services cover everything from a live simulation of your target school’s video essay/interview component to arranging the environment in front of your camera to achieve a professional appearance.
  • Conducted in small groups of three to five fellow applicants in a secure and private online environment, our Team-Based Discussion Simulation is designed to give you peace of mind for Wharton’s Team-Based Discussions. The simulation, facilitated by our Senior Consultants, will provide you with individualized feedback on your performance and the opportunity to experience what the live group discussion might feel like.
