Let’s take a step back for a second.  OSU Fischer has been using recorded video interviews run by a company called Kira Talent since approximately 2018.  Several programs at Fischer use these interviews in admissions – besides the MBA, several of the master’s programs as well, such as the MAcc, MHRM, and SMF.

The way these interviews work is quite simple.  You’ll be shown a question either as text or in a video recording from someone in admissions at Fischer, you’ll have a few seconds to prepare an answer and then about a minute to record your answer.

Keep in mind that it is on that submissions that admissions will actually hear you talk for the first time, and first impressions matter!  That’s why we compiled this list of OSU Fischer Kira video interview questions so that you can get ahead of your competition.

OSU Fischer’s style

Before we jump into the questions, remember to do your own research on OSU Fischer’s style.  While admissions officers love to build diverse cohorts, they are also looking for applicants that “match” with the program.

At a high level, OSU is very proud of its geographically and culturally diverse campus, and Fischer is quite similar.  So make sure to use examples in your answers that bring up situations where you had to deal with co-workers in other countries, how you overcame cultural barriers and what you’ve learned from those experiences.

Ok, let’s get on with the questions!
