Thanks a lot @rishabhagindore for an insight into ISB. You really calmed my nerves.
Here is my debrief. I had
my I/V at 8:30 AM slot on 28th. Before the I/V, I was hell nervous, but that all went away with conversations with other interviewees. I went in at 9:50 AM roughly and came out after 20-25 mins.
I was called in the room and given an extempore to speak about. The topic was somewhat like "Political and Economic system in India is not good for Entrepreneurship".
My panel consisted of a male and female professor. I was given 2 minutes time to jot down my thoughts and 2 minutes to speak. I started within one minute. During my extempore, I was cross questioned. Frankly, I lost my flow with that nudge. Restarted and was stopped again to give a new point. Then, took 20 seconds and then started talking about political effects on starting business via economics theory assumptions.
I was asked what books do I read. I am pursuing a Masters Course, so I just mentioned that.
I was asked about latest report and details I have read. I didn't remember which one was that and conveyed that but I gave some stats from the reports within my sector(IT) growth. I was prodded more for the reason why did you read that report. (Probably, panel was thinking that I read it for interview only). I gave the reason.
Topic went back to Entrepreneurship and I was asked about my 2 recommendations to PM Modi. I was prodded till I gave exact method and plan of my recommendations.
I was asked about the reason for trends in IT. Reasons for the trends. And that discussion went deep as we went into discussing 10-30 years of IT trends in market. Later, discussion came back to current IT trend. I work on cloud, so I tried to steer it that way, but panel seemed to be interested in hearing lot on Big Data Analytics and prodded me for specific application. I said I don't have specific application on top of my head.
Finally they asked me some questions on my extra academic interests. What prodded me to go for those extra interests?
Lady Professor was active most of the times firing the volley of questions and asking for more details. I did feel that interview entered into realms of stress interview as I remember saying "Sorry, but I dont remember or know" atleast 5-6 times. It was comfy for most of others I talked there.
Anybody who has been selected for the SP Jain MGB program JAN intake ?

Hi, I am Nagarjun from India. I am aiming for Jan 2015 MITB (Analytics) intake. I need to know more about the placement record of SMU in MITB (Analytics) course. It would be a great help for me if some one brief me about the placement statistics of MITB (Analytics), so that I could proceed further towards my application closure.
I have 4 years of experience into IT sector with international exposure. I have more than 85% aggregate in both 10th and 12th standards.
In extra curriculars I have won accolades in debates, group discussions, drama competitions and singing competitions as well.
Please let me know the score I should target and if you can provide some good colleges in US to target for R1/R2; with good chances of scholarships as well.
I am also inclined to ISB and INSEAD apart from the colleges in US.
