The following Columbia Business School interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by an Early Decision MBA applicant. Good luck to them!
Was a really short one- done in 20 mins which was surprisingly short. Very standard questions- nothing to throw off- Intro, why MBA, why CBS, what are your goals and how will you contribute to the community.
The Adcom member spoke really passionately about the alum network and her experience of traveling around the world for mba events which was good to hear.
CBS from this experience seems to have very to the point interviews with straightforward questions to just judge how comfortable you are talking about them.
Haven’t received a decision yet but hoping for the best!
