Berkeley Haas Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / First-Year Student / On-Campus

I interviewed on campus, I was told it would be with a second-year student, but it was with a first-year student. The interviewer had only seen my resume prior to the interview, and typed notes as I spoke. The interview lasted 45 minutes. The interviewer had a list of questions to choose from and selected questions based on my background and the answer I had just given him.

1. Tell me about yourself.
2. Why MBA/Post MBA Goals?
3. Why Haas?
4. Tell me about a time you had a heated debate with a colleague and you were in the wrong.
5. Which Haas leadership principle resonates most with you?
6. What’s your leadership style?
7. How do you motivate those you lead?
8. Tell me about a time you used data to guide your decisions.
9. Do you have any questions for me?

Overall it was similar to my other MBA interviews, the interviewer was nice and encouraging and made an effort to make the interview conversational rather than interrogatory.
