Duke / Fuqua MBA Interview Report: Round 2 / Alumnus / Off-Campus

The following Duke / Fuqua MBA interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant.

This Interview Archive has been a really helpful resource, so in the spirit of Team Fuqua…

Note: I’m American living overseas. The alumnus is a national of the country. We met in a café. She only had my résumé, which she had received prior to the interview.

The interview was conversational, rather than strict Q&A, so one question flowed to the next in general categories. Sometimes a lot of time passed in discussion without a question being asked. Overall it was very friendly. There were a few areas (noted below) where she dug deep with follow-up questions. It was about 35 minutes of interview, plus ten minutes of my questions for her / general discussion.


Walk me through your résumé; I’m curious to hear why you transitioned from one position to the next.

Tell me about your current job. What is an example of a project you’re working on? What did you do to overcome that? What was the result? What is the status now?

Why Fuqua? (This also led to discussion about my post-MBA goals, why North Carolina, etc)

What clubs will you be interested in joining? Why? Which one are you most interested in?

What does Team Fuqua mean to you? Give me an example of this in your career. How did you work to solve that problem? What was the result of this?

Do you have any questions for me?
