Columbia Business School MBA Interview Questions & Report: Early Decision / Alumni / Los Angeles

The following Columbia Business School MBA interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by an Early Decision MBA applicant. Good luck to them!

Went to his office, he had requested my resume in advance to review. Mostly conversational, but expressed some concern in my quant skills, as I don’t currently have a quantitative job, which put me a bit on edge. Asked what other schools I am applying to, what my GMAT was, though this seemed to be more from genuine curiosity, then anything to do with CBS. Interview lasted an hour.


  1. Walk me through your resume
  2. What are some challenges you’ve encountered at work?
  3. Why CBS?
  4. How will you contribute to CBS post graduation?
  5. What is your short term goal?
