UPenn Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Report: Round 2 / TBD / On Campus

The following is a Wharton MBA admissions interview description provided by a recent applicant: With several close friends currently at Wharton, I expected to have a positive experience, but walked away from my interview/lunch/class experience extremely disappointed. Perhaps it was coming off the positivity of Haas’ Super Saturday, or a very enthusiastic interview at Fuqua the day before – I’m not sure. I will explore this after running you through the process. My group of 6 wa... Read more »

Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 1 / TBD / On Campus

The following is a set of Wharton MBA admissions interview questions provided by a recent applicant: I recently had my Wharton team based interview on campus. Started off with our one pitches.  Very amicable group.  Several of us had ideas focused in [region] and we were able to reach consensus on our idea.  We then collectively presented our idea to the 2 observers at the end of the time period. During the one on one session, the observer asked me these questions: Asked how do you think the dis... Read more »

Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 1 / TBD / On-campus

The following is a set of Wharton MBA admissions interview questions and feedback from a recent applicant:  When I was invited to interview, Wharton emailed us the team-based discussion (TBD) prompt. It asked us to come up with a Global Modular Course (GMC) idea. After reading up on actual GMCs at Wharton, I came up with a topic about healthcare in India, because I was very familiar with the subject. I spent several hours researching the topic, but later learned that there is no value to that (w... Read more »

UPenn / Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions : Round 1 / AdCom / On Campus

The following is a description of the UPenn / Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions from a recent applicant: I interviewed at Wharton last week, and I did both my Team Based Discussion and Healthcare interview.  For the healthcare interview, since I had already spoken with June before I applied, I interviewed with a recent graduate who is helping out with healthcare admissions on a part-time basis this year.  She was very friendly and the interview was very conversational.  Most of the time...

Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Second-year Student / On-Campus

I arrived about 15 minutes early and chatted with some of the other interviewees. Everyone was very nice and friendly. We were called into three different rooms in groups of 5 or so, and my group was called last. We were read the prompt, told our time constraint, and then asked to start. Everyone shared their idea, and then I summarized the key deliverables we were trying to work towards and offered to play the role of timekeeper and offered a general structure for how the time should go. We set... Read more »

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

My interview was in London with a team of 5 others. I got there 45 minutes early and was the first to arrive. Gradually other team members arrived and we got along talking really well, laughing and getting to know each other. I noticed when the ADCOM member came in–I don’t think others did. She dressed casually and hung back from us for about 10 minutes, most likely eavesdropping on our conversation. I had met her twice on her trips to my country, but instead of going to introduce myself I... Read more »

Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Adcom + Second-year student / On-Campus

1. Healthcare portion I interviewed for the health care major, which involves an interview with the director of the program. I already have a healthcare background so we just discussed my previous steps in more detail and my motivations going forward. It was a logical conversation. It wasn’t explicitly told to me, but I get the feeling that post-MBA job placement marketability is important to them (does your background/profile match with the type of jobs you’re trying to get?) 2. Non... Read more »

Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub – Singapore

I arrived an hour early to avoid rush hour traffic. This gave me time to get settled and converse with all my group mates. It made me less nervous since I already knew everyone and their backgrounds before stepping into the room. The group session was a bit scattered, since everyone was very diplomatic but everyone wanted their own idea to move forward so ideas just kept multiplying. I and another group mate would occasionally moderate the session by summarizing and suggesting a process to move ... Read more »

Wharton MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 1 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub

I went to Shanghai for the interview. The first part was a group discussion lasting about 35min. The second part was one-on-one interview with the Adcom. My teammates were very nice, and we had a pretty nice team discussion. Everybody had a chance to talk, but there was one guy who was quite outspoken, taking the role as a leader. He tried to summarize what others had said and gave a 1min presentation at the end. I think the Adcom was quite impressed, and he was admitted. The one-on-one intervie... Read more »
