I have an international experience so I think my interview was an exception but not sure. It was more of a conversation rather than a Q&A. The interviewer started off talking about my company comparing it with its competitors asking me to comment on whether or not the comparison was right or wrong. Then, we moved to my education.
He asked me to comment on education in Pakistan, India Pakistan relations, the current Indian Prime Minister. ( I am from India)
In between there were a few standard questions – Why Oxford, Why MBA and why now, If I don’t get admitted into Oxford what I would do, and my weaknesses.
Towards the end I asked a few questions. He answered them very patiently. It was a very interesting and fulfilling conversation.
