Columbia MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Rolling admission / Alumnus / Off-campus

The interview was conducted by an alum and took place in a conference room in his office. It was a blind interview, but I sent him my CV in advance.

– Walk me through your resume
– Why Columbia/ why MBA?
– What other schools I’d applied to
– My current role
– What I had to bring to the table in the classroom setting

He was a young and friendly interviewer. He gave me his background too. It felt fairly informal. There was time at the end to pose questions. He had a report to fill out afterwards, so he apologised if the questions seemed trite, and because he’d be writing comments based on my responses as I spoke. The interviewer felt a strong affinity to the school and conducts many interviews.
