Chicago Booth MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alumnus / Off-Campus

45 min interview in a coffee shop in Seattle by a Booth Alumni who worked at Amazon as a Finance Manager. A bit strict vibe, but mostly conversational. Music in coffee shop was a bit too loud and there few many people there so got a bit distracted.

Questions –

1) Introduce Yourself
2) Walk me through your resume
3) Three words that you would use to describe yourself. How would your supervisor at work describe you?
4) Couple of Behavioral questions like tell me about a time when …, biggest failure …
5) Why MBA? Why now?
6) Why Booth?
7) Do you have any questions for me?

In general thought it went pretty well, but I got rejected in December. Maybe being from a tech background didn’t connect very well with my interviewer being in finance. But all questions were expected ones, nothing out of the park.
