Duke Fuqua MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Second-Year Student / Zoom

Image for Duke Fuqua MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Second-Year Student / Zoom

The interviewer was a second-year US student at Fuqua, who was energetic, engaging and seemed interested in my background and work experience.

The interview lasted about 50 mins, with the last 20 mins for me to ask him some questions about his experience at Fuqua. The interview felt different compared to other alumni interviews I experienced, as the interviewer gave his thoughts/comments after each question. It felt casual like a conversation with a friend, which helped to put me at ease. Here is the list of questions:

  • How is this week going so far for you?
  • How did you transition from your prior employer to your home country and how did you find your current startup?
  • What is the biggest challenge that you had at your current startup?
  • What is your future dream?
  • What does diversity mean to you, in your opinion?
  • What is the gender breakdown at the current startup? (threw me off a little bit)
  • What is the most important lesson that you learned at your current startup?
  • So, you had your startup experience and your future dream, what do you want to do next and how does Fuqua come into play?
  • Asked about school athletics since we both cheered for US college sports.
  • Have you ever visited another metropolitan city in your country?
  • Are there stereotypes between different cities in your country?

Update: Got accepted with $$ as a Fuqua Impact Scholar! Super excited for the opportunity, good luck everyone!
