The following Michigan / Ross MBA interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 applicant. Good luck to them!

The blind interview was conducted by local alumnus off-campus in India, and lasted ~1hr. The tone was positive throughout and format conversational and free flowing, even though the interviewer was referring to Excel sheet and constantly making notes.

We covered a wide range of topics and experiences which I believe allowed me to present a complete picture of my candidacy and fit for Ross. Certain questions, I felt it necessary to further build on my answer without explicitly having been asked the question. Perhaps this was appreciated by the interviewer. The positive interview helped me get into a very positive mindset for the subsequent off-campus Team Exercise.


  1. We started by comparing notes on our common first employer, comparing and contrasting industry trends and practices more recently vs. during the interviewer’s time. Along with presenting my learnings during the role and rationale for joining, I additionally shared my perspectives on the industry going forward.
  2. Which other programs are you applying to? Explaining my program choices, I then built into why Ross specifically stands out.
  3. What are your post MBA goals and what kind of companies are you looking at. Do these companies recruit at Ross?
  4. Whom have you spoken to about Ross and what is the impression you got?
  5. What would you say is your 1 strength, and 2 weaknesses?
  6. How did you imbibe a unique multicultural awareness working across different cultures, and how did you adapt? This was a detailed question with detailed follow-ups on the challenges faced and how unique insights imbibed allowed my team and I to overcome these challenges and drive impact. This then led to questions on my leadership style.
  7. How will you contribute to the clubs and activities at Ross?
  8. Any questions for me?
