  • Along with the activity, you can mention a few additional things

Frequency - E.g. I love to play cricket and most Sunday mornings, I play a game with my friends.

Level of participation - Though I am not trained professionally, I love to sing and I am the first to sing at social gatherings OR I have trained for 5 years and I have performed in various shows and have won xxx awards.

Manner of participation - Don’t say ‘I love music’ - Say I love listening to bollywood/EDM etc . Don’t say ‘ I love cricket’ - Say I love watching cricket .. I love watching all T-20 matches involving India and I follow all Indian matches online. Or Though I don’t watch a lot of cricket, I love to play cricket for my club. It pays to be as specific as possible.

  • You cannot mention family members, friends, coaching class faculty members as your referees.
  • You can mention school/ college teachers / HOD/ principal as referees.
  • You can mention your manager, head of a dept, project/internship guide as your referee.
  • Bottomline: The referee should have known you as a student in school/college or in a professional capacity.

It is unlikely that MDI will call the referee . Generally, the referee may be called post the interview. It is advisable to take the consent of  the referee before you use his/her name/ or inform at a later stage ( esp important for working professionals who haven’t informed the workplace about MBA plans :) )
