Harvard MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub

My HBS Interview was very conversational. Only 1 interviewer – felt like the main objective was making sure that my story made sense and what I said on paper reflected who I was in real life. There was no time for questions at the end.


Have you every managed other individuals? Has that been difficult?

If I were to get all the junior people you work with in a room, what would they say about you? Strengths? Weaknesses?

Have you ever been to an HBS class? What class are you going to?
