NYU Stern MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / Zoom

Interview was very conversational and was conducted by a member of the admissions committee. Based on the interview reports I had read, I was expecting to be challenged on my short-term goals and recruiting strategy, but that part of the interview felt tougher than expected. So my number 1 tip would be to make sure you can defend your short-term goal and make a case for how Stern will help you get there, especially if you intend on recruiting for traditional industries like IB or consulting.

1. Question from Pick 6
2. Summary of your career post graduation?
3. What does a typical day at work look like for you?
4. Short-term goals?
5. Companies you will be targeting in IB?
6. Recruiting Plan for IB?
7. What do you think is the toughest part of recruiting in IB?
8. What will give you an edge in IB recruiting?
9. What will you do if you don’t get an internship/job in your target industry?
10. How will you get to your long-term goal given it is niche? (The long-term goal I wrote about was very niche, so I had to explain how my short-term goal and resources as Stern will help me get there)
11. Clubs you want to be a part of at Stern?
12. A time you demonstrated EQ?
13. Anything else you want the admissions committee to know?
14. Any questions for me?
