When company officials interview a candidate for giving employment in their company, their main focus will be on the capability of the person in the field of his work. For this, they may ask some questions which will reveal to them your expertise in the basics of the subject.

Your presentation skills, your body language and your alertness also will be tested with their questions.

There may be some focus on the internship you did while pursuing the course. Some interviewers will ask some minor details about your family also. Some questions will be on your ability to take decisions also.

Whatever may be the question be confident while answering. It is better not to do any guesswork in answering subject-related questions. There may be some general questions which will not have any right or wrong answers.

I conducted some interviews in some MBA colleges for appointing them to the company I was working for. Some of the questions our team asked in the interview are

1. How your MBA study helped you to change your thinking? Please explain with one or two examples.

2. What are your career aspirations?

3. The government of India is encouraging start-ups and what are your views on this? Given an opportunity are you ready to go for a start-up company with a few more partners?

4. How your MBA degree will help the company to progress?

5. Are you having any specific area of interest if yes, why?
