UT Austin / McCombs MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-campus Hub

UT Austin McCombs MBA essays

My McCombs interview was on January 18th in NYC with adcom member. It was a blind interview, so she had just reviewed my resume before I arrived. Very friendly adcom member, made it easy to relax and take my time answering questions. A lot of behavioral based questions, so have your stories ready, and also do your research on the school and extracurricular offerings.


  1. Walk me through your resume
  2. What are your short-term and long-term goals?
  3. What is your plan b if these goals don’t work out?
  4. Why McCombs? Why now?
  5. How will you contribute to McCombs?
  6. Tell me about an experience in a team where you had a leadership role
  7. Tell me about a time when you had a positive impact on someone (did not have to be a work example)
  8. Tell me about a time when you came up with a creative solution to a business problem
  9. What work accomplishment are you most proud of?
  10. What do you like to do in your spare time?

I asked 3 or 4 questions at the end specific to my interests at McCombs. She appreciated that I had done my research on the program and was taking notes as she answered my questions.
