 IE B-school interview experience 1:

Hi, I am Neha. I applied through General Education last year and got admitted in IE Business School. My interview was taken by the alumni of IE Business School. She was very friendly, and it continued for about 40-45 minutes. I should say it was more than interview a conversation or general discussion in between us. Before the interview, there was a class and campus tour I was able to participate in. The students were extremely friendly (something IE Business School takes pride in because of the close-knit community). I recommend doing some activities beforehand because it will help you during the interview.

IE Business School Interview questions asked by the IE admission Committee during the interview:

  1. Walk me through your resume.
  2. What is your Plan B if you are not selected for IE Business School?
  3. If I called up your supervisor, what would he say are your strengths and weaknesses?
  4. What do you think is the weakest part of your application? I guess this is not similar to a generic weakness question but weakness from the application perspective.
  5. What is it about your job that brings you stress?
  6. How did you choose your recommenders?
  7. Do you have any question for me?
