Duke Interview

Posted by nixbert on November 4, 2008

I screwed this one up. Royally. All those months of preparation went down the drain in 45 minutes. It was a classic deer-with-headlight-in-the-eyes experience for me.

Here are the questions that came my way –

– Why do you want to do an MBA and how have you prepared yourself for an MBA?

– What are your short term and long term goals?

– What time frame are you looking for your long term goal?

– What if someone else moves in and captures the market before you for your long term goal?

– Coming from a very competitive pool, what differentiates you from others?

– Consider the following situation – There are 10 team doing similar work. A survey is done by the organisation at both Quantitative and Qualitative levels and your team turns out to be the worst performing team and is placed last. What would you do?

– There are several kinds of leaderships. What do you think is your style? Give me an example?

– Are you involved in any community activities?

– Give me your 6 strengths ( one word for each strength)

– Give me 3 weaknesses. Again in one word
