Duke / Fuqua Interview Questions & Reports: Round 2 / 2nd Year Student / On Campus

The following Duke / Fuqua admissions interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 MBA applicant. Good luck to them!

I really enjoyed the day of activities that Fuqua plans for interview days. There are class visit opportunities (though you don’t get to choose the class, which is a bummer), tours, panels with students, lunch with students. The whole time you were sitting in the waiting area, there was always a few 1st year students to chat with you and answer questions. This was a great opportunity to learn about the program. The activities are not as fulsome on a weekend, so try to come on a week day.

My interviewer was extremely enthusiastic and put me at ease by telling me that it’s a conversation, not a firing squad. He will be taking notes, so don’t look into it because it’s just a way for him to remember what happened. Because it’s conversational, be prepared to deviate from your “pitch” sometimes. If you get thrown off easily, practice having a conversational interview rather than Q&A.


1. Tell me about yourself (some questions in the middle sprinkled in about my career transition, my undergrad institution)
2. Why MBA?
3. Tell me about your career goals
4. Why Fuqua?
5. What kind of legacy to you want to leave at Fuqua?
At this point, he transitioned into some other questions. I think he gave me a heads up about the transition. I don’t remember specific questions, but they were very team-based.
