The following LBS interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!
The interview was conducted in the alumnus’ office building. He talked me through his background and that had me “walk him through my resume”. He then preceded to ask standard business school and specifically questions such as “Why LBS? Why London? Why an MBA? What are your goals”. Following he asked several behavior based questions such as “How would I describe my leadership style?” and several questions about how I act in a group setting since a significant portion of classwork done at LBS is with a group.
Following these questions he chose a case study example out of a list from LBS. The one he chose was about Coca-Cola acquiring the coffeehouse company Costa and what strategies Coca-Cola should follow to ensure this acquisition was a success. I was given 5 minutes for prep and then presented for 5 minutes.
Following the presentation I asked him all of the questions I had about LBS. The interview lasted roughly an hour and 45 minutes. Although there were traditional interview aspects it felt far more casual and conversational.
I felt it went well and am looking forward to hearing the round 1 decision!
