The following Berkeley / Haas MBA interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!
Met my interviewer in the admissions office on campus, interviewed in a small room in the same building. Second-year student interviewed me, seemed they had scanned my résumé prior to the interview.
Interview ended up being very relaxed and conversational, but there were several distinct questions:
- Walk me through your résumé (included brief explanation of why MBA in response)
- Why Berkeley for your MBA?
- Tell me about how you prefer to work in teams
- Any questions for me?
I was asked to provide an ID, which did not occur for other schools.
I was surprised by the level of enthusiasm that my interviewer had about Berkeley. I think it speaks to the strong culture and identity that’s built on campus. They were also very friendly and welcoming, which also seems characteristic of the school.
