UC Berkeley Haas Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alumnus / Off-Campus

Berkeley MBA Deadlines

The following Berkeley / Haas MBA admissions interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!

Received interview invite very late in the Round – two weeks before decision date. I signed up via the portal in my area and an alum reached out to me via email to schedule a location and exact time. We met in a local Starbucks. Interview was fairly relaxed and largely centered on my resume.


Questions I was asked included:

  • Why did you choose your school for undergrad?
  • Why did you choose your first job after college?
  • Why did you move to your current job?
  • Describe your role at your current company/do you manage any direct reports?
  • How has the transition to managing others gone?
  • Tell me about a time you had to manage someone difficult.
  • If you were in a meeting with your learning team and someone was being really difficult how would you handle it?
  • Why Haas?
  • When you get into schools how will you decide where you want to go?

Had a very pleasant experience and was ultimately admitted!
