Group Discussion

A GD is a methodology used by the MBA institutes to gauge whether the candidate has certain personality traits and skills that it desires in its students.

In this methodology, normally a group of 8-10 candidates is formed and given a specific situation to analyze and discuss within a given time limit (15-20 minutes). The group may be given a Case Study and asked to come out with a solution for a problem. The group may be given a topic and asked to discuss on the same. A panel will observe the proceedings and evaluate the members of the group.

There are no rules or guidelines for the selection of discussion topic. It can be anything. The objective of this exercise is to test your ability to deal with the topic, not your knowledge on the topic. Still, if the topic is from current happenings, you should have at least some information & facts to talk about and earn GD points.

While discussion, the following points must be taken care:

  • Make your chances yourself
  • Ensure that the group hears and you get noticed by the panel
  • Contribution must be meaningful
  • You should have clarity of thoughts and your thoughts should be organized
  • Body language must be right

Practice well before you go for the GD!!

Personal Interview

The personal interview is a critical step in the admissions process and should not be taken lightly. In fact, it's your best opportunity to persuade the interview panel that you are a superior candidate.

For the b-school, interview is an opportunity to question you about your application, your autobiographical sketch to screen out psychological misfits who may not be well-suited for business management program. Your interviewer wants to learn what you are like as a person and how well you respond and communicate. They want to understand your values, how you think and how well you handle yourself under pressure.

You should be prepared for these potential areas of questioning:

  • your childhood, personality, family, college life, hobbies, sports and outside interests
  • your professional and leadership experience
  • your career goals, political views and breadth of business knowledge
  • your motivation to obtain an MBA; why now, why our b-school

Be prepared for a wide range of questions. Keep your answers short and to the point. And above all, stay calm and be confident of whatever to say.

You must convey to the interview panel that you have made a rational and informed decision about your career choice.
