As Round 1 interview invitations from The Wharton School roll out, we wanted to make sure you’re ready for their MBA interview.  In this episode, your hosts Alex Brown and Graham Richmond break down Wharton’s group interview – the ‘Team Based Discussion’ (TBD) – and offer a wealth of tips and background to help applicants ace their Wharton admissions interview.

Alex and Graham, who both formerly worked in admissions at Wharton, discuss the history and purpose of this interview format.  They also provide sage advice on how to deal with different personality types in your TBD and explain the pros and cons of Wharton’s unique process.

The TBD prompt for the 2019-2020 admissions season can be seen here.  This podcast episode includes a lengthy discussion about what to expect from the 1-on-1 interviews that Wharton conducts after the TBD. If you have any desire to attend Wharton, this podcast is a must-listen.
