IIMC MBAEx Interview Preparation

The IIMC MBAEx Interview is the second and final stage of the IIMC MBAEx admissions process. It is very selective – only 50 candidates make it through to the final selection list every year (a few more are selected to allow for those who are given an offer but don’t take it finally, but this number is not very high). The IIMC MBAEx interview therefore acquires increased importance.

Frequently Asked Questions on IIMC MBAEx Interview

  • Is the interview friendly and casual or challenging and aggressive?

    There is no standard answer to this question and it all depends on the particular interview panel. Generally, interviews are not as challenging as you would find for PGP (the regular 2-year MBA at IIMC) applicants. Still, you can expect to be challenged and double-questioned on some answers and explanations.

  • Are the interviews technical in nature or more behavioral?

    It is not impossible to find technical questions as part of the interviews, but most interviews are predominantly behavioral. That said, there could be probing questions on some aspect of your work or academics, though you should of course not dust up your old textbooks to prepare to answer them.

  • How long do interviews usually last? Is the length an indicator of acceptance/rejection?

    Expect most interviews to last 20-30 minutes. Interview length can vary based on many factors, so interpreting it as indicator of acceptance or rejection is difficult.
