FAQ

Interview Process

Q. How important is the interview in relation to the rest of the application?
A.

The interview is an important component of the application and provides you an opportunity to share your story. Through the interview, we hope to hear more examples of the types of experiences you have had in both your personal and professional life, and to get a sense of your demonstrated record of achievement, your interpersonal and communication skills and your focus—why MS Finance?

Q. How long do interviews last?
A.

The interview usually lasts 30 to 40 minutes. In general, the goal of the interview is to assess your maturity, judgment, professionalism, initiative, interpersonal and team skills, communication skills and ability to think critically.

Q. Do I have to come to Nashville for my interview?
A.

No—we recognize that it's not possible for everyone to travel to campus, especially in the middle of the workweek or from far away. Typically, we conduct your interview via video call once your application has been submitted and gone through an initial review. You will be contacted via email to set up your interview.

Q. What can I expect during the interview?
A.

We conduct a structured conversational interview. We are interested in evaluating all candidates on a common set of criteria, but we also want to discover your individual story, unique talents, and personal ambitions. Your interpersonal skills, communication abilities, and professional presence are at least as important as the specific content of the interview. We expect that you will wear professional attire and have a copy of your current resume.
