What to expect from the interview (ESSEC)?

  • Posted by - Sleed - on 12 February 2014 - 2:42am


    First I would like to thank you for putting up such a great website that has been really helpful for me when deciding where to apply.

    Here is my question:
    I will have my interview with ESSEC in the next few weeks and I was wondering what to expect from it? I know they are going to ask the "obvious" questions such as "why ESSEC" or "what do you want to do after the master", but what else should I expect?

    Additionally, is the interview the deciding factor when you have been shortlisted or it only counts for a certain percentage in the admission decision?

    Thanks in advance for your answer,

      Hi Sleed,

      Any feedback you would be willing to share from your interview with ESSEC?

      Thanks Thomas and many thanks to Ashwin for his post.

      I'll update here if I find any differences between the SAI interview ant the ESSEC one.

      Hi there,

      thank you for your questions. You may find this Master in Management interview post very useful as it provides a first-hand summary of what you can expect. Overall, the interview will count approximately 20 percent of the total evaluation.

      Best wishes
