Guys,

I am posting some interview questions which were posed to me in IIM ABCL interviews. Due to lack of time , I will just post the Q's and leave my actual experiences for next week. Hope junta will pardon me for that

Background :-
B.E (Mech) BIT Mesra
TCS - 5.5 yrs (3 yrs onsite)
CAT : 99.58
Calls : All six (didn't give K,I), Final call from SPJ

1. How many times did you attempt CAT
2. Why so late in considering MBA as a career option
3. Adjusting with the batch of avg age 22 yrs (I am 28!!)
4. What companies/job profile are you looking at in placements
5. As IBM country head , how would you compete with the TCS's and Infy's of India
6. Will you have probs with academics, being out of touch for so many years
7. Will you take up classes for first yr guys (when you are in 2nd yr) -how'll you approach it ?
8. Tata Business Excellence model/CMM/6 Sigma/BPO/ Business development
9. Business Plan for a startup
10. My US/Europe experiences & learnings (they went into details of where I stayed etc..just to check if I wasn't bluffing )
11. Ethics/Corporate governance
12. Map you career to a batsman coming at 85/1 (7 overs) in a 50 over match.
13. What consultancy can you provide us to improve the branding of our institute (IIMA prof asked me this )
14. Contingency plans ..in case no calls from IIM's
15. Q's on your domain knowledge
16. Why not ISB/US b schools (I had 740 in GMAT)
17. NO Q's ON ACADS in any IIM intvs

This what I can recall right now ..will add if I can remember some more.

Hope this helps.

Gut feeling : You need to sell yourself a bit harder than others, as 5+ yrs wrk ex is an exception rather than norm and IIM's need to be doubly sure whether they should take you or not.

Regards,
Sanju
