Questions you can expect at an ISB interview



On the day of our interview we are all very nervous about the questions we may have to confront. Apprehensions such as what sort of questions will be asked, whether I will be able to answer them etc always bother us. So, here is an interview experience shared by our student that will give you a glimpse of the questions you may face.

Candidate: 30 minutes before my interview, I was asked to write about ‘Perpetual’ within a 50-100 word limit. I wrote about how my experiences in my family business had a perpetual impact on my life. My interview started 10 minutes prior i.e. at 12 pm sharp.

2 ISB alumni were sitting in the room to take my interview. The discussion is as follows.

Interviewer: How is the atmosphere outside?

Candidate: The atmosphere is pretty good. However, I am a bit nervous about this whole interview.

Interviewer: Do not be nervous. We are all friends here having a very normal discussion.
