The candidate has a lot of curiosity and then the candidate becomes aware of his/her interest areas.
  • Unlearn and then Relearn – MBA is like a vibrant color box. Every individual comes from a different background. Some are freshers and some have work experience but unlearning those experiences and learning new things from all the bosses (faculty) is the main role of B-schools.

As a finance manager, how will you work with them?  These scenario-based questions tell a lot about the individual’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as their analytics skills. The candidate is judged on his leadership skills, communication skills, and how he/she prioritizes in terms of Decision Making.
  • Be a continuous learner – It’s fine that you’re good with numbers and excels but one needs to be continuously evolving and keep digging only then he/she will keep growing. Nowadays content is available everywhere and if you decide to learn something you can do it.
  • Be the Change – The manager has the power to bring a change in society.
