Hi,

I have seen that a few people have posted what questions they were asked during their interview for Msc Strategic Marketing at Imperial.

However, I would like to ask anyone else who has had an interview but had not posted the questions they were asked on TSR... I would like to ask what questions were you asked and what advice and tips do you have regarding the interview?

I just want to have an idea of more possible questions that could be asked in addition to the ones that people already said on TSR that they were asked

Thanks

Please can you share the questions you were asked?
The questions I was asked were

1 What is your background and why would you like to study an Msc in Strategic Marketing at Imperial?

2 What is your favourite brand and why?

3 Compare the marketing strategies of Coke and Pepsi

4 What do you think is the future of marketing? (or where do you see the future of marketing... I cant remember what she exactly asked but it was something along these lines)

5 Have you applied to any other universities?

6 Do you think wearable devices (as in Google Glass and Apple iWatch) will have a big impact in the future?( again I cant remember what she exactly asked but it was something along these lines)

7 Are you comfortable working in a team with international students from around the world?

8 Are you planning to work back in Singapore after you graduate from your masters?

And then the interviewer asked me if I had any questions that I would like to ask her


I can't remember what order the questions were asked in and I may have been asked more questions but I can't remember at the moment what they were. If I can remember being asked any more questions and what those questions were I will post them on TSR

Was your Favourite brand Coke or Pepsi?
Well, when answering this question I mentioned a bit about Coke's marketing strategies specifically about how it has been seen as symbol of peace, equality and harmony and it has been associated with a 1960's song 'I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony'. I did not mention anything about Pepsi because to be honest I'm not too familiar with its marketing strategies and campaigns.

It was a bit concerning when answering this question as I am generally not so familiar with the two brands marketing strategies.

What about you? Were you asked this question? Have you already got an offer?

I'm not fully surehow many people got the invitation for interview but i know that in the past few years quite a number of people did get the invitation for interview since I have looked at a number of people's TSR posts where they mention the kind of questions they were asked

Thanks for sharing your questions. I had my interview this morning and I was asked very similar questions to you, except I was asked to compare the marketing strategies of Apple and Samsung.

For those with interviews, I would recommend doing some research on the person who is interviewing to see what their speciality is and what their research and interests are. You can tailor your answer in a way that incorporates their interests.

I was also told I would find out if I will be offered a place in the next few days.

Hi! Gosh how comes I couldn't find this threat before. I am about to be interviewed soon next week, by Lucy as well. Haven't got any ideas about how I will survive it. But this would help a lot. Thanks midnight999 for the sharing .

There is nothing to be nervous about. Take all the advice that's already on this thread and be yourself.

Yes she was my interviewer. Have you heard back now? You should contact the admissions department if not.
