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

It was a blind interview with an alumni, who graduated from Booth almost 10 years ago. She was working at a pharmaceutical company, so this helped her resonate with the examples I gave while walking through my resume.

The interview was much more detailed that I expected and she probed me to elaborate on my past work experience and extracurriculars with follow up questions.

  • Walk me through your resume.
  • What did you learn from your volunteering experience?
  • (Regarding my internship at Strategic Planning at Coca Cola) What were the insights you gathered through a specific project?
  • How did pursuing a career in marketing help you with your people skills? Give me an example where you convinced someone in a challenging situation.
  • How did you handle a challenging situation at work? (After I mentioned I worked without any line managers for more than 6 months)
  • Give me an example where you worked in a team with different point of views.
  • What are your strengths & development areas according to your managers?
  • Elaborate on your areas for development.
  • Post-MBA goals & target companies
  • Why Booth?
  • My view on Chicago Approach and how it will be different from education at college.
  • Which courses do you want to take?
  • Which clubs do you want to join?
  • How will you contribute to Booth?
  • What do you think will be the most challenging part of your time at Booth?

It lasted 45 minutes. I would say it was more challenging than my interviews with Kellogg, UCLA and Ross, because she directed many questions in a fast-paced manner . Still, it was a positive experience.
