1. Aishwarya Krishna (MBA Batch of 2020-22) [20jgbs-akrishna@jgu.edu.in]

i. How was your experience with the Admission team before you received the final confirmation call for your Interview?

Before finalizing my interview in JGU, I was being in a good contact with Kalpana Ma’am, from the Admissions team. I was very much happy and satisfied with her services and behavior towards me. Whenever I call or mail her for some purposes, she would respond very quickly, and she was also very calm and friendly while talking to me over phone.

I could definitely feel a sense of attachment and comfort when I had spoken to her. I was sure that if I get admitted into JGU, I would be able to approach her freely for anything.

ii. During your MBA interview how did you feel while interacting with your Interview  Panel ?

As I am from Kerala, it was not possible for me to go to the campus and attend my interview. Gladly, JGU was well equipped for conducting interviews in the online mode, via Skype.

My interview was taken by Professor Kulpreet. The interview was scheduled at 12 noon. As it was my first interview through the Online mode, I did not know how well it would be happening.  But before the start of my interview, I wanted my interview to go in a more interactive manner other than the “Question Answer” types.  The interview started off at sharp 12 noon. I greeted her with a smile, and She also greeted me.

The very first question she asked was to drive through my resume, and I did for about 2 minutes. I gave more focus on telling my experience about my Internship, and this was a turning point in the interview, as she was also more interested to know about it. She started asking me questions related to my internship and My role in the Company.

This session held for about 30 mins. But trust me, it was more like an interaction between me and Kulpreet Ma’am. I was much comfortable than I thought. It did not feel as if I was giving an interview.  From my personal interview experience, It was a wonderful session, that I did not know 30 minutes had passed by, just like a blink of an eye.

iii. Will you term you Interview as a Stressful one or where intention was to find more about you that probably wasn’t known by the Panellist?

Never. I was at My own comfort Space and Pace while the interview was happening.  I did not feel stressed at all. It was more like a communication between two individuals.
It was a like a Chit-Chat session.

iv. In case of your MBA interview a;t JGBS, what difference did you observe here in comparison to Interview of other Institutions?

The major difference I saw in JGU’s interview, while comparing to other institution’s interview was, the interview panelist never asked if I would 100% join in JGU, which I feel, is a very personal question to ask at the time of interview, at the first place.

When I had attended other institute’s interview, they wanted the assurance at that time itself, while the interview was happening.  Second most thing, which I loved during my interview with JGU, is that I had the  “Freedom of Expression”. I had the freedom to freely express my views and opinions about certain things.  It was more like an interactive session, which was focused on to better understanding between two people.

v. You may share your experience about Pre-preparation of Entrance Test as well as Interview to guide new aspirants.

It was during the time between December – February, the entrance tests and subsequent     interviews was taking place. I had appeared for CAT, MAT AND CMAT. The strategy that I used and felt beneficial, while writing the test was the  “Elimination Strategy” from the options. 

It is not about finding the correct answer for every question. It was about knowing smartly which question to attempt, how to eliminate the wrong ones from the options, and then arriving at the right answer.

These are some tips, that I personally followed before appearing for my interviews.

  1. Confidence is the Key – Be confident on whatever you are saying at that time of interview.
  2. Aware and Alert – Be aware of the major news, happening around us.
  3. Bye-bye to QnA’s – It is not about just merely answering to the questions that is being asked. Try to build a free communication between you and the interviewer. 
      1. Do not say the answer, Build it.
      2. Connect and divert – Always try to connect and divert to the area which you are most comfortable speaking.
      3. Attention – Grab their attention, they must be inquisitive to know more of what you are talking

2. Mandira Mathur (MBA Batch of 2020-22) [20jgbs-mmathur@jgu.edu.in]

i. How was your experience with the Admission team before you received the final confirmation call for your Interview?

My interview experience at Jindal Global Business School was very smooth and well-coordinated with the Admissions team. Regular calls were made to ensure that my desired time slot and preferred day for interview could be accommodated. Prior to the interview, I was sent a brochure about the MBA course outline which made the decision-making process smooth. Apart from this, a unique aspect was that I was shared an introduction of the panellists that will be conducting my interview which in more ways than one reduced the pre-interview stress that everyone feels.

ii. During your MBA interview how did you feel while interacting with your Interview Panel ? ( You may elaborate this with your experience of time , nature of questions being put in , were they technical , behavioural or anything else ) 

The interview panel consisted of two faculty members. It was scheduled for 1 pm and it started exactly on time and it was more like a conversation to understand my area of interest and why I want to opt for this course. The nature of questions was related to Marketing as I had prior work experience in this field. Apart from which some basic business-related questions to test my knowledge of the management/business field were also asked by the panellists. I can say that some questions were technical pertaining to my field of work whereas others were more general. The experience was smooth and the faculty members made me very comfortable which made me confident in answering the questions posed. 

iii. Will you term you Interview as a Stressful one or where intention was to find more about you that probably wasn’t known by the Panellist? 

No, I do not think that my interview was stressful at all. It was more of a conversation where the faculty members were getting to know more about me and my interests. This also helped ease the tension related to interviews and made me comfortable enough and answers all the questions easily. 

iv. In case of your MBA interview at JGBS , what difference did you observe here in comparison to Interview of other Institutions? 

A few of the unique features of the JGBS MBA interview were the sharing of details of the panellists which I’ve never experienced before. There is always a fear in the minds of students because they do not know anything about who will be their interviewer and this helped me a lot. Apart from that, even before my interview took place, the Director of Admissions had a conversation with my mother and I and informed us about the course, the facilities offered and even introduced us to the Assistant Dean for the MBA programme. This helped answer a lot of questions that are in the minds of students and parents. After the interview was over, we were even taken for a tour of the campus which was important because it is a fully residential campus and built our confidence and helped make our final decision.

v. You may share your experience about Pre-preparation of Entrance Test as well as Interview to guide new aspirants. 

The criteria for admission required a minimum of 50% in our undergraduate degree and an MBA entrance exam score like CAT/MAT/XAT/CMAT/ATMA, GRE, GMAT  or NMAT. I got selected with my MAT score. Before the interview, I prepared some general questions that will help the interviewers know me better and it would be a good idea to brush up on some basic topics from your undergraduate degree and the area of specialization that you would like to opt for.
