FAQ in PI: What are your strongest abilities?
It is important to prepare well in advance for the following interview question: What are your strongest abilities? Generally, students indicate their strengths and abilities on their resumes, and if you have done so, you should expand and elaborate on your strongest abilities during the interview. 
If you have not stated your abilities and strengths in your resume, share three strong abilities that you possess with your interviewer. The abilities that you mention should be relevant to your MBA and future career goals.
Strong abilities like being hardworking, determined, a good communicator, a good leader and a team player as well as enjoying challenges can be mentioned during an interview, depending on your personality type and strengths. 
When sharing your strongest abilities with your interviewer, ensure that you do not sound arrogant and egoistic. Apart from mentioning your strongest abilities, share with your interviewers stories of your life which shine light on these strengths.
If you have demonstrated certain abilities in projects, internships or in school, share these with your interviewers too.
Also, enlighten your interviewers on how these abilities will help you to achieve your goals, be it short term or long term goals. In addition, share how these abilities will help you while pursuing an MBA and a career in business or management upon graduation. 
By giving an in-depth answer on your strongest abilities, you not only show that you are passionate about pursuing an MBA from the business school of your choice, but you also show that you are capable of being a successful leader, who possesses the right skills and abilities for the business world.
So, before the interview, think carefully about three strong abilities that you possess and demonstrate how these abilities will help you to become a successful business leader in the future.
