Chicago Booth MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Alumnus / Off-campus

Chicago Booth MBA Interview

My Booth interview was with a local alumnus in my area at his workplace during the week. He was very accommodating and laid back. Interviewer only had my resume and took notes during the interview.


  1. Tell me about yourself.
  2. Tell me about a time you had to deal with conflict.
  3. Tell me about a time that you failed. What did you learn?
  4. Why MBA? Why now?
  5. Why Booth?
  6. Have you visited campus?
  7. What classes/club activities are you interested in?
  8. Do you have any questions for me?

Like others have said previously, the Booth interviews are very relaxed with behavioral questions. Mine was no different, and the interview turned out to be very conversational. There weren’t any surprises and the interviewer wasn’t trying to “get me.” The interview ran about 45 mins and we could have talked for longer, but I wanted to be respectful of my interviewer’s time.
