Former HBS Interviewer Shares Insight

Join Poets&Quants' John Byrne and mbaMission's Devi Vallabhaneni as they discuss the coveted and anxiety-producing Harvard Business School (HBS) admissions interview. Devi is an HBS alumna, former HBS Alumni Interviewer, former HBS Admissions Board Member, and now the HBS Interviewer-in-Residence at mbaMission. While on the HBS Admissions Board, she interviewed HBS candidates in Boston, London, and Paris. Over her 20+ years in MBA admissions and readiness, she has conducted thousands of real and mock interviews helping candidates across all industries, geographies, backgrounds, and personal stories. You’ll hear why there’s even a waitlist to prepare with her.


During this 30-minute conversation, John and Devi will address common HBS interview concerns, such as:

  • What is anxiety-producing about the HBS interview?
  • What are the myths surrounding preparation and the interview itself?
  • How can someone prepare? Isn’t it hard to know what’s covered?
  • What does it mean to be authentic in the interview?
  • Does your interview have to be perfect for you to be accepted? What if you feel like you messed up an answer?
  • What is HBS really looking for in the interview? Can it make or break someone’s candidacy?
