There are some general guidelines that help during the selection in any top Business schools like ISB, Harvard, etc. Some of them are discussed below in points.

Leadership Quality:

  • You need to express your leadership potential to the jury. In this way, you can distinguish yourself from others. 
  • Motivating others and becoming a better person professionally should be established.


  • A good academic record and a GMAT score of above 710 can prove an excellent academic potential. 
  • Studying in a top institute and good academics are an added advantage to the cause.

Work Experience:

  • Good working experience is always necessary. Good Business School always gives preference to student employability. 
  • Having some good brand names in the resume, with proper work experience can help a lot in the interviews. 

Mutual Fit: Proving to the panel that you are a good fit for the role and have made extensive research on the profile would help a lot during the selection.

Career Goals:

  • Express your short-term and long-term career goals to the panel. 
  • Short-term goals should be such that can be made possible with the current skill-set and with the aid of the institute. 
  • Having an impossible aspiration is not worth expressing.

Be Genuine:

  • You need to be genuine in everything they say. Business schools are very much aware of plagiarized content and they find them out easily with the use of plagiarism software. 
  • The decision panel has been doing the selection for decades and so, it is not possible to escape from them, having plagiarized content.

Recommendation Letters:

  • It can be used as an essential form of self-presentation. But, recommenders should be chosen wisely. 
  • It should not contain anything against the candidate as it can have adverse effects. 
  • Asking the supervisors or vendors for recommendations is the best choice, rather than asking a CEO or CXO.

Interview: Interview preparation has a lot of resources on the internet. Sounding originally is essential.

These are some of the key points that would aid during the preparation for a B-School like ISB.
