Services: HBS 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 Intensive Interview Simulation with Devi Vallabhaneni, a veteran interviewer with 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 Intensive Interview Simulation includes the following:

  • Two or three 30-minute 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 time between your interview sessions with Devi so that you can internalize the feedback and adjust accordingly before trying again.

The HBS Intensive Interview Simulation is conducted online with a webcam. The interviews will be scheduled individually at a mutually agreed upon date and time. Please choose from the options in the drop-down menu. We will follow up with you shortly to complete your registration.

What Past Clients Are Saying About Devi's HBS Intensive Interview Simulation

Devi is an extremely talented interviewer who helped me become a significantly better interviewee in just three 1hr long sessions. Through honest and direct feedback, Devi wasted no time and gave me exactly what I needed to hear in order to improve in just 3 sessions over the course of 2 weeks. I felt much more confident at the end of the process. More importantly, I came away feeling I’ve learned skills that would benefit me for the rest of my life in business and beyond! I highly recommend Devi to anyone who wants to improve their interview skills.
Looking back, I can say for sure that choosing to work with Devi was the best decision I have made during the preparation for my HBS interview. Devi not only helped me to obtain a deep understanding of the interview process, but step by step worked with me to build my confidence, by emphasizing equally my strength and the areas I needed to improve.
Working with Devi was a fantastic experience! She helped me self-reflect to extract impactful stories related to my resume and taught me the right approach to connect my different stories. Most importantly, she trained me not to sound “scripted”! Although I practiced with Devi for HBS, her preparations paid dividends. I leveraged her approach during my interviews with other top schools and, thanks to her, I also got admitted to Stanford and Wharton!!! Working with Devi is the best investment ever!!!
