Harvard Business School Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub

The following Harvard Business School / HBS interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 applicant. Good luck to them!

I was interviewed by the Admissions Director in Mumbai. The interview was very conversational. There were four parts to the interview:

1. Introduction/Small Talk
Spoke about the city I grew up in and where I work currently. Discussed environmental and infrastructural challenges that the cities have been facing.

2. Discussion on current job (venture capital)
Spoke about the VC landscape in India – key players, differentiation etc.
Went into specifics of my experience – How I evaluated deals? Specific deals which I liked but my colleagues did not? How would you improve the firm?

3. Discussion on previous job (consult)
Anything that you miss from consulting days

4. Open-ended
One thing that you are working on? Anything that we have not covered?
