UVA Darden Interview Questions & Report: Dec (EMBA) / Adcom / Sands Family Grounds (Rosslyn)

MBA Admissions Brief: UVA Darden School of Business

December EMBA Interview at UVA Darden with Adcom.

Very conversational. We toured the Sands Family Grounds first, then found an empty room to pop into for the interview. I believe it was blind, though I’d had a phone conversation with this particular adcom person a month prior.


  • She asked me to walk her through my timeline in chronological order.
  • She’d ask clarifying questions
    • Why did I pick the Marine Corps?
    • What role to I typical play on a team? (for example).

The interview was way easier than I expected and felt like a meet and greet typical at work. I felt questions were expected, so I was sure to bring some that I couldn’t have answered from the website (why do students choose EMBA over GEMBA format, for example).

I felt like the interview was mostly to determine if I would be a good cultural fit in the EMBA cohort, in order to add to the case method pedagogy.
