Episode 28 Replay: How to Interview at Harvard Business School

It’s always tough to score an interview invitation to Harvard Business School, and even tougher to get through the MBA admissions interview! But fear not, Clear Admit’s admissions experts, Graham Richmond and Alex Brown, are here to help you prepare.

Richmond has counseled hundreds of applicants along the way, read hundreds of HBS interview reports, and even been through the HBS interview process himself.  Brown, the author of “Becoming a Clear Admit: The Definitive Guide to MBA Admissions,” has worked in the admissions space since the 1990s, and trained admissions officers at dozens of leading schools.  Together, they tackle every aspect of the HBS interview process in this podcast episode, including:

  • What it means to get an invite from HBS
  • The kind of interviews HBS conducts (format, who conducts, location, etc.)
  • Unique aspects of the non-blind interview
  • Popular questions
    …and plenty more!  Get to listening to learn all you can and ace your Harvard Business School interview!
