Yale SOM MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub

Yale SOM MBA interview

I had my Yale interview in early March, in London with an adcom. The interview was very structured, and lasted exactly for 30 minutes. The interview was blind-based, so the interviewer had only seen my CV and my quote prior to the interview.


  1. Walk me through your resume.
  2. Why MBA?
  3. Why Yale?
  4. What was your greatest accomplishment?
  5. What was your greatest mistake?
  6. Please explain your quote.
  7. Do you have any questions?

All in all, a very pleasant interview experience without major surprises. I believe the adcom primarily really wants to get to know you, and assess your fit with the school.
