Last year I felt both the interview and GD process was pretty cool. Last year we had personal interview first and then a common GD for both MBA and MM guys.
Very generic. why MM, why AIMS, what is your aspiration, what is your present role, how do you fund, what do you think of AIMs etc (They were more interested on the present role)
Almost similar to MM. (But more interested on aspiration)
This was common to both MBA and MM.
case study was about a Japanese Salesman. This case study seems to be the GD topic for couple of years with AIMS. The professors look for the participation. They do not encourage debate. Everyone is right, but they look for out of box thinking. 1st round everyone is given a chance to talk in a serial order. Then from the second round, we need to raise the hand to further elaborate the discussion or to support their views.
Not much of preparation is required. But we need to think differently and understand the root cause of the issue and try to give out of box solution.
Many of us felt: They have a predetermined approach on the selection. GMAT/AIMAT score, Yrs and area of experience are the parameters they look for and give 30% of weightage. Interview-communication and aspiration - 40% of weightage. GD-analysis, expression and thinking - 30%.
Attire : Formals with Tie.

Tips for people who have to appear...
-Each GD group has 10 people
-The group will be split in two to three subgroups
-the case-study would be a typical survival one wherein your team had a mishap and you have a choice of items like matchbox, water, food, blankets, torch, magnetic compass etc. etc.
-Each sub-group has to prioritize or rank the items according to their importance to achieve the goal-'Survival'
-Whats expected: subgroups discuss their plans, strategies and ranking of items and merge perspectives to come up with a consensus as a group.
-Tips: Dont fight, assign role to people, merge perspectives, give logic & rationale, choose a teamleader or a moderator, agree to disagree & move on and stick to time-lines.
Not a stress interview at all...but pls. avoid giving canned responses.
Questions pertaining to career goals, Essays, Resume and GD (what went right or what went wrong/analysis of paralysis)
Dressing: definitely formal (suit+tie)
