Harvard Business School MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / On-Campus

Harvard Business School
The Harvard MBA admissions interview was really relaxed — I truly got the sense my interviewer was just looking to get to know me.
The visit was good. There were lots of activities (classes, lunch with the director, tours, chats, etc) during the day you could pick to be a part of. I found that everyone else interviewing was also really nice. We all chatted in the waiting area 15 minutes before our interview and right up until we each got pulled into the private rooms with our interviewers. My interviewer was very sweet — kept telling me that none of the questions were meant to be “trick questions”!
There were no surprises. Most people could’ve done an interview like mine cold if their application is true.


  1. Why [blank] college?
  2. What did you do on campus?
  3. Tell me about X activity in school.
  4. Tell me about Y activity in school.
  5. Tell me about A activity post-grad.
  6. Tell me about B activity post-grad.
  7. Tell me about your job. What do you like best/least?
  8. What are your bosses like?
  9. Why did you get a promotion?
  10. What do you want to do after MBA?
  11. Someone you admire in your post-MBA goals field?


Just relax, be yourself, and let your personality shine.
