Ross interviews are typically resume-based. Once I got the shortlist, I was asked to upload my resume on the portal, and I got matched with an interviewer. I was matched with a much older alum (Class of ’08) who is currently a C-Suite executive at a top company in India. Reached out to him via mail to set a date and time for the interview and I scheduled it via Zoom.
Questions asked in the actual interview –
1) With walk me through your resume.
2) Why MBA?
3) Why Ross?
4) What can you bring to the Ross class? Asked me to elaborate on my answer.
5) Tell me about a time when had to convince a client/superior.
6) Tell me about your biggest failure at work.
7) Tell me about a time when you showed leadership by mentoring someone.
8) Tell me about a time when you started a project without having any background on the work being done.
9) Tell me about a time when you had to work with someone from a different background than yours.
10) Tell me about a time when you had to convince someone that they were on the wrong path.
Overall, the interview took about an hour. He gave me 5 minutes to ask a question about the program/his experiences, but then he had to jump into another call. The overall nature of the interview was friendly and very conversational.
