MBA Interview Questions

Describe yourself
This is the most common interview question asked during almost all job interviews. You have to present yourself to the employer. Remember that though this is a simple question do not neglect it. Employers already know about you as they are having your resume with them. With this question, they want to see how efficiently you present yourself and promote you in front of the interviewers.

How can you explain your leadership quality?
Explain any incident from the past when you took initiative for completing any particular task. No matter whether it is related to your work or not, your initiative is most important to display your leadership skills. Think of any such situation where you needed to take action for completing the work.

Have you ever come across the situation when you thought of an innovative idea and needed to convince your seniors or colleagues to implement in your work to improve efficiency. How did you convince them?
Working in an organization, you may come up with different innovative ideas that you would like to implement in your work. Implementing these ideas may improve the efficiency of the employees but you first need to convince your seniors and bosses and explain them the positive side of your proposed method. Explain to the interviewers how you convinced your seniors and explained them the rise in the overall performance of the company. Also tell the interviewers about the improvements in the company after implementing your idea.
