London Business School Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alumnus / Off-campus

London Business School Interview Questions & Report

The following LBS interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!

The interview was an application-based interview with an alumnus in my country. The interviewer followed the guidelines from LBS and asked me the very standard questions of LBS Interview – what is your background, tell me about yourself, why you want to do an MBA and why in LBS in particular.
We talked about my professional experience, it seems that in his point of view I have relatively little professional experience (work in a law firm for 2 years, the interviewer has a background in law as well and he worked for 5 years prior to his MBA) and he asked me if I don’t think that additional 2 or 3 years of experience will not be valuable for my career – kind of “why now” question.

He also asked how my co-workers will describe me? any failure that I can mention? what is my leadership style? what are my strengthens.

The interview also included a 5-minute presentation in which I had was to explain about the relationship between founders and investors in startups.

It seems that the interview is made to see that the candidate fits the impression from his essays.
