Our Latest Podcast: Who Is Your MBA Interviewer?

At schools like Harvard Business School and MIT Sloan School of Management, MBA admissions interviews are conducted exclusively by members of the admissions staff. London Business School and Columbia Business School, meanwhile, are among those that rely on an army of alumni to meet with candidates around the world. Still other schools—including the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business—train current students in the art of interviewing and call on them to help assess potential future classmates. While much of the content of the interview may be similar regardless of who’s sitting across from you in the room, it pays as an interviewee to know your MBA interviewer and prepare accordingly.

If you still have an upcoming interview scheduled, you won’t want to miss the second episode in the Clear Admit MBA Podcast series, which is devoted to understanding the different types of MBA interviewers and how best to prepare for each.

Episode 2: Who Is Your MBA Interviewer?

Hosted by Editor-in-Chief Jeanette Brown and produced by Contributing Editor Jon Pfeffer, this latest episode features Clear Admit Co-Founder Graham Richmond sharing some of the first-hand insight into MBA interviewers that he gained working in admissions at Wharton and later advising thousands of business school applicants to a wide range of leading business schools.

In case you missed our debut podcast, which aired last week, it was also interview focused, looking at the wide range of different interview formats used by individual schools. You can catch it here.

And we’ll have one more episode on interviews—specifically, how to prepare for Skype or video interviews—later this week.

Future podcasts will include a widening array of guests to discuss trends within graduate management education, student life on campus, post-MBA career options, and more. So stay tuned!
