Services: HBS In-Person Intensive Interview Simulation

Predicting exactly what questions you will be asked in your Harvard Business School (HBS) interview is impossible, given the dynamic nature of the meeting and the school’s individualized approach, but this does not mean you cannot prepare to navigate the interaction effectively and increase your chances of leaving your desired impression! To help candidates do this, mbaMission is proud to offer our HBS In-Person Intensive Interview Simulation with Devi Vallabhaneni, a veteran interviewer with more than five years of experience interviewing hundreds of HBS candidates. Through this intensive simulation, you will have the opportunity to experience an HBS-like interview, demystifying the process and enabling you to approach your real HBS interview with competence and confidence

The HBS In-Person Intensive Interview Simulation includes the following:

  • Two 30-minute, in-person (live!) interview experiences customized to your application. Before your first session, Devi will spend several hours reviewing your written application, following the same process she used when conducting candidate interviews for HBS. This allows her to target her questions based on what she discovers about you from your application.
  • Personalized feedback. After each interview session, Devi will provide you with targeted feedback, talking you through her impressions and offering strategic advice for improving your HBS interview skills.
  • Reflection period. You will have a break between your first and second interview so that you can take time to internalize the feedback and to adjust and prepare accordingly before trying again later that day.

These in-person interviews will be held on select Saturdays and Sundays in October and November 2018 in New York City. The exact dates will be announced by September 1.

Total cost is $3,000. A $1,000 deposit is required to reserve a spot but will be refunded if you do not receive an interview invitation from the school. Traditionally, HBS releases its interview decisions in early October. If you are invited to interview and have submitted a deposit, you can then complete your purchase ($2,000 balance) and book a date and time for your simulation. If you are not, your deposit will be returned to you.

We will also maintain a wait list so that as sessions become available, candidates can reserve a simulation time with Devi.

Applicants who would like additional practice time with Devi after the HBS In-Person Intensive Interview Simulation can purchase single 60-minute mock interview sessions. These will be conducted over the phone.
