Michigan Ross Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alumnus / Zoom

Interview was on Zoom with an alumnus based in Chicago working in tech and a former MBB consultant. The vibe was relaxed, although the interviewer was a little ranty, telling me why consulting work-life balance sucked and why he’s glad he got out. The first question was an icebreaker – what did you have for breakfast. Then we got into the substantive questions. Surprisingly, the interviewer did not ask me to tell him about myself or walk through resume.

Instead, the first question(s) were:

  • Why MBA?
  • Why Ross?
  • Why now?

Then, we dove into behavioral questions, which included:

  • Tell me about a time you overcame a challenge.
  • Tell me about a time you worked to promote diversity and inclusion.
  • Tell me about a time you had to change your perspective/mindset.

I later had time to ask the interviewer some questions about himself, Ross, and his career.
