Duke Fuqua Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Alumnus / Skype

The alumnus had graduated from Fuqua about 10 years and the age difference made the interview a bit like briefing to my boss. Just kidding.

  1. Self-introduction and follow-up questions about my current employer.
  2. My role in the team
  3. Failure story due to my fault and my solutions.  He challenged my solutions and shared his view on this issue.
  4. Most important factor in mind when selecting school
  5. One factor that may cause me to decline Duke offer.
  6. Career goal.  Since my CG is PE/VC industry, for which MBA may not help me that much, he shared his concerns and his viewpoints about the school’s strong suits.
  7. Any questions for him.

He shared a lot about his reason in choosing Duke and his personal gain during the experience.

The interview was very formal and he challenged me a lot. But I was very grateful to his sharing and his honesty. The interview lasted about 50 minutes and I had some reflections afterwards thanks to him.

In sum, the interview centered around cultural fit and my reason to pursue MBA.

Hope this can help.
