Why MBA? Why Kenan Flagler
I was surprised with this being the first question as opposed to" tell me something about yourself", I had hoped to create some background using that question. However, I answered what my post MBA career goals were and how an MBA would help me reach the goal and add on to my existing skills and strengths. I also spoke about making connections and meeting new people. Research the KFBS website for unique details about the program which help if mentioned in the interview.
Tell me about a time you faced a tough situation at work? How did you manage that?

What are your post MBA career goals?
Strategy and Operations consulting. Tied my love for analyzing complex business problems and drew parallels between my present work and skills to the requisite skills in consulting. Try and rationalize your answer be specific. I was specific about my role. I mentioned the given role in Technology and or FMCG sector.
How will you cope with a wide group of nationalities you meet at KFBS and what clubs interest you at KFBS.
I talked about a career related club /consulting club and about an extracurricular club. KFBS website is your best friend, explore it and you'll be prepared for such questions. Spoke about leading an international team during my stay at Wacker and how putting across ideas and communicating freely have always been my strength.
