It was a two-way communication and not a typical interview that evaluates you solely on your academics or experience.

How did you hear about Masters’ Union?

I came across Masters’ Union through one of the news articles which mentioned a modern-day B-school catering to the new age business problems with technology, along with providing a master-oriented learning experience. This caught my attention and I had to do my bit of research like reaching out to a few first cohort members and the admissions team from whom I got further clarity. Coming from Chennai and having 5 years of work experience, I had to carefully evaluate my path and what I could take from this programme.

I went ahead with the application process which required me to spend time and do my groundwork. It helped me envision, narrow down my thoughts and find my goal of making the best use of this course and leveraging it for my growth.

Can you tell us about your interview experience?

After getting shortlisted, the interview was tough compared to all other elements of the admission process and needed more preparation considering that I was going to be interviewed by Arun Malhotra – Former MD of Nissan Motor Corporation. I was asked to fly to Gurgaon from Chennai. I had a fixed time slot and my interview went for 45 minutes where Mr Malhotra grilled me to make sure that he got all the insights he needed for my candidature. Overall, it was a wholesome experience and was the furthest thing from a random technical interview.

When I had the time to reflect on how it went, I understood that it was more about getting to know me as a person, my fitment to the course, my passions, goals, dedication and more. Hence, you can say that the interview is aimed at getting to know the applicant’s potential, and how the individual and the course would add value to each other. After the interview was done, I understood that I should have been even more prepared and that this programme would help me push my limits. That was when I realised MU is an institution that helps you get out of your comfort zone and push your boundaries.
