How to prepare for UT Austin MSBA interview

Getting an UT Austin MSBA interview invite is a big deal since it is one of the best Business Analytics programs in USA. Here are the questions you need to prepare for it.

As per one of our students who appeared for the interview and later attended this fantastic program-

The interview was mainly behavioral and the questions were mostly repeated. Since my interview was quite late, I had connected with many people and prepared a comprehensive set of questions. No question was asked beyond these.

Proven strategies to get into TOP schools

MS Book by Nistha Tripathi


I would like to thank Nistha for her constant support during my application season. What I like about her is that she is very candid and straightforward. I drastically improved my SOP and it was UNIQUE. She always provided feedback which could really help see things which are usually neglected. I got good admits and in case I wish to go for further studies, I know i will get in touch with her.
