Puys....Plz help me in understanding how to ans the following general quest....plz plz plz reply or else guide me to the thread where it has been discussd....
why this college?
why want 2 leave enginering & go for mba?
how u'll relate mba & mech engg?
Very pertinent questions but no one seems to answer...no one can guide you here to any threads here..y don u try the small search button on PG
Actually there individual threads dedicated to these questions as such!!! So try them for more inputs...
But basically from my 3 yrs experience i would say that you need to have good or even very good answers to these questions. These are questions that can make or break your selection.As to Why MBA?
Dont go on and say the usual stuff that u want a responsible position, wanna contribute meaningfully, leadership, contribute to growth of organization etc etc.. Those are some trite answers try to find out something different.. Try to find a solid answer..It may vary from person to person...end of the day you maybe looking @ a good profile/salary but that you cannot go and say in an interview... Go with some solid plans, make some clear cut answers to these questions... Think what you want and find out different things like entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship or even going back to the org where you are working currently in a better role and say why you wanna take it up and what its requirements are etc etc.. these are just examples...Have a solid one for yourself b4 u go! search PG thread for Why MBA and you will get lot of ideas...Describe yourself:
I guess Pallavi has answered it quiet beautiful in one of the recordings..check it out..I would advice have 2 answers one that completes in 1.5 mins another that goes to 3 mins. Also be prepared with something that is not in your CV/form for 1-2 min atleast.why this college?:
Again don repeat the same stuff as the mass says..Yes you need to point them out but you can also say that "In addition to the obvious good reasons like so and so I feel that these are some good reasons...Go onto point out some thing different like this one matches my freq..i didn't apply to all the coll but had done lot of analysis b4 selecting 3-4 coll whcih suits my b/w etc etc...Say how the coll will help you..have an idea abt the profiles being offered, the course being offered,content of the course etc so that you may base your answer based on thiswhy fin/mkting/etc?
: This answer should be based on your choice..your liking and your sills..Though you may not be fully aware of the specializations till you get in a college i suggest you do some sort of a research b4 u come up with an answer... Again be convincing and if you feel you are yourselves not sure tell them the truth tat you know so and so ...looking forward to this because of these skills and so an so nature of work or reasons etc but i am open to the specs.. Would like to have a deeper insight before i select one...why want 2 leave enginering & go for mba?
Again come up with something yare.. i think these qns are answered umpteen number of times in various threads...Just search!!! Try to find out some relation b/w engg skills and MBA etc...say its just a continuation, career ladder, competition, preference in job circle, say abt techno managers, your like to work in related field etc etc...
Similarly they may also ask why not got for a job b4 doing MBA to freshers and to experienced guys they will ask why quitting and doing MBA?!!!
Most of the qns are answered in detail in some dedicated threads... pls pls read them before you go for PIs.. Its of utmost important that you have well prepared and well rehearsed...Spent atleast a couple of days preparing answers for such standard questions..It is worth it.. Have well defined goals(short and long term) strengths, weakness, examples of some qualities from your life, role models etc etc ..... You need to be prepared with all this before going for PIs unless you are a good orator or a very lucky person
Mind you the competition will be really tough in the top institutes so being prepared wont do any harm!!
