The Ultimate LBS MBA Kira Video Essay Question Bank 2022


Everything submitted to the London Business School’s admissions department. Application done. “Oh wait what?! There is some sort of  video requirement?”. Yes, that’s right you’ve just remembered you have to complete a video essay as part of your application to proceed – and you definitely don’t want this to derail your application.

We’ve researched an extensive, but not exhaustive, set of possible questions to help with your preparation – and guess what! All these prompts are all built into Voomer’s AI-powered video assessment tools here.

We recently made a video that goes over some of the things I’m going to discuss in this article.  Take a look at the video but read on for more!

LBS’s style

You need to answer two questions.  The first one is a variation on the “why an MBA and why this school”.  If you are at this stage in your application, you’ll probably already have the answer to that question on the tip of your tongue.  Just make sure to make sure you have something unique that LBS has to offer ready to go on your answer.  LBS admissions isn’t stupid – they know that you’re probably applying to several other programs, but if you can mention something uniquely LBS (a class, professor, club, track, etc), the person reviewing your video essay will definitively pay attention.

OK so here we go! Brace yourself it’s a long list. As you know, there is much more to a strong performance than just being confident in potential questions – structure, performance, eye contact, vocal tone matter too – that’s why we created Voomer to empower you to communicate who you are more effectively.
