How to Totally Crush Your Texas MBA Interview

From the Texas Full-Time MBA Admissions Team:

So, you’ve submitted your application and after waiting anxiously for further news, you’ve received that coveted interview invitation. First of all, take time to pat yourself on the back to have made it to this stage of the process! Receiving an interview invitation means that the Texas MBA Admissions Committee is excited to learn more about you.

However, after a few excited minutes of celebration, some questions might start popping in your head. Should I book a trip to Austin? What interview format options are there? What sort of questions will I be asked and who conducts the interview? How do I prepare for the interview?

Like anything else, your MBA interview invitation is an opportunity. While some applicants may look forward to it, others may not exactly enjoy the anxiety. If you are a member of the latter group, look at it this way: this interview can be just the thing the Admissions Committee needs to stitch together the rest of your application elements with a genuine, prepared, and poised interview performance.

The interview affords one of the only formal opportunities for official face-to-face interaction during the application process. Seize it.

Re-Applying to the Texas MBA Program

From the Texas MBA Admissions Team:

The 2017-2018 application is open for all programs, so questions are starting to roll in from those who have applied to the MBA program in the past and are interested in re-applying for the Class of 2020.

First and foremost, having applied in a previous year is not considered a negative factor in your application. We are pleased to see your continued interest in the program and will evaluate your new application on its merits, and in the context of the new applicant pool, just as if you are applying for the first time.

Our best advice: Consider giving yourself a fresh start when you approach your new application. Think through and reassess your application, addressing any weak areas, and add new information that may be helpful in the admission process.

Below is an overview of the application process for re-applicants:

Still Deciding Between Full-Time or Working Professional MBA Programs?

From Sharon Barrett, Director of Working Professional & Executive Texas MBA Admissions:

Are you still deciding between leaving your job to attend the MBA program full-time, or continuing to work while you earn your MBA part-time? Rest assured you’re not alone. Here are some basic questions I ask people who are grappling with this decision:

What do you want to do with your MBA?

The answer to this question can help determine whether a full-time or part-time program makes more sense for you. The majority of Texas MBA students go into the MBA program with the goal of switching jobs. Our Working Professional (WP) MBA programs – Texas Evening MBA (in Austin), Texas MBA at Dallas/Fort Worth, and Texas MBA at Houston – are an excellent fit for those looking to switch to a career in consulting, or to move into a different function within the same industry (such as operations to finance, or vice versa). The strong general management focus of the curriculum in the WP programs also gives graduates the tools they need to run a company, whether it’s their own or someone else’s. And hands-on experiences through the MBA+ Leadership Program offer students the opportunity to work on a consulting project to sharpen the skills needed for a switch.

If you’re planning a complete industry switch, say from software engineering to financial services, or moving into a specialized field such as investment banking or clean tech, then you may want to think about how your past experiences are related to these goals. If they’re completely unrelated, getting exposure and experience in this field prior to beginning your job search can be important. The Texas Full-Time MBA requires a summer internship, and the elective choices allow students to dive deep into a specific industry or area of focus to position you for a strong career pivot.

Tip: Research your target companies in advance and see if they require an internship with the company prior to full-time employment.
