B-Schooled Episode #26: MBA Interview Advice (Part 1 of 2)


In this episode of the B-Schooled podcast, our host Erika talks with Beth Tidmarsh—one of Stacy Blackman Consulting’s Flight Testers, and the former director of full-time MBA admissions at the Kellogg School—about MBA interviews.

They have a discussion about:

• Common types of MBA interview questions
• Advice for how to answer typical MBA interview questions
• What admissions committees are looking for from candidates in an interview
• What to do if something goes awry during the interview
• … and more!

Then, stay tuned for part 2, which will air in two weeks (November 4). In that episode, Erika and Beth will focus specifically on behavioral interview questions (they’ll actually role-play several questions and answers), general interview do’s and don’ts, and specific advice for questions you may be asked at the end of an MBA interview.
