London Business School Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Alum / Off-Campus

My LBS interview took place at Starbucks with an alumnus. He is working in the VC/PE space and I have worked in startups, so I think that was a common link.

Interview was very casual and conversational.

It started with introduction:
– Schooling & family
– College activities, internships
– Work experiences

After introduction he asked the below questions:
– Goals
– Why MBA?
– Why LBS? Why not U.S. or Indian schools?
– Geography preferences post-MBA

The above 2 parts were completed in 30 minutes. Surprisingly, he didn’t ask any behavioural questions such as “tell me a time when you lead a team” etc.

The next part was case study. He provided the case question and gave me 5 minutes to prepare. After that, I verbally presented my thoughts on the same. There were no follow up questions. In the end, I asked a few questions about his experience. The entire interview went for 1 hour.
