John Hopkins MeM Interviews
About MeM Interviews:
Since the MEM admissions process is competitive, candidates are advised to apply as soon as possible. Transcripts, recommendation letters, a personal statement, and a completed online application are all included in the application. Additionally, candidates are invited to interview with an admissions committee member.
The purpose of the MEM interview process is to determine how well the applicant fits into the programme. During the interview, the candidate will be questioned about their educational background, work history, aspirations for their career, and reasons for wanting to pursue a MEM degree. In order to evaluate the applicant’s capacity for leadership and their aptitude for problem-solving, the interviewer may also ask behavioural questions.
5 Tips to Ace Your MeM Interview:
- Do extensive research on the school and the programme. This will demonstrate your sincere interest in the programme and assist you in understanding the interviewer’s expectations.
- Practise standard interview inquiries. This will boost your self-assurance and readiness to respond to inquiries immediately.
- Get ready to share about your successes and experiences. This is your opportunity to promote your qualifications for the programme and to demonstrate your skills and abilities.
- Pose meaningful queries. This demonstrates your involvement and enthusiasm for the course.
- Be passionate and authentic. The interviewer is searching for a student who will be a valuable member of the programme community and who is enthusiastic about their studies.By using these pointers, you can maximise your chances.

“I had the honour of being interviewed via Skype over the internet.

On October 15, 2021, an off-campus interview was conducted for the MeM Programme. In the end, I was placed on the program’s waitlist.

• Tell me about a team you worked on.
• Do you prefer to work individually or on a team?
• Provide an example of when you didn’t get along with a co-worker and how you
• Describe your ideal boss/colleague.
