MIT Sloan MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / On-campus

MIT Sloan MBA Interview Questions

An MIT Sloan MBA interview report with questions was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant on-campus:

I interviewed in the afternoon on campus. I spent the morning participating in a coffee chat with current students, attending a class, and then having lunch with current students. Overall the visit was well-programmed and really drove home how approachable and welcoming the MIT Sloan community is.

We were told that interviews would last 30-45 minutes, and that they are behavioral event-based interviews (BEI), which are essentially deep-dives on behavioral questions and past actions. My interviewer was a staff member of the Admissions Committee. We spent the first few minutes making small talk about my visit and then quickly got in to it.


  • What has changed since you applied?
  • Tell me about a time that you have disagreed with your supervisor.
  • Tell me about a time that you had to lead a team.
  • What is a piece of negative feedback that you’ve received?
  • Why an MBA?
  • Why Sloan?
  • What questions do you have for me?

The last one re: questions for the interviewer is surprisingly important at MIT Sloan; they want you to ask insightful, unique, and thought-provoking questions of them. Don’t ask anything too general or something that you could find with a bit of digging online.

Overall, I thought it was a very warm experience. My fear is that I rambled too much / deviated from the STAR method, however time will tell.
