Columbia Business School Deadlines

Interview 4The interview was at a coffee shop and revolved around a few basic questions. It was a blind interview, although I provided my resume in advance, and it lasted 45 minutes. I had the opportunity to ask questions throughout the conversation.

1. Walk me through the last three years of your resume.
2. Why are you interested in going to business school?

My key role was to try and place some of the more divergent ideas into a larger framework, ask clarifying questions, and then synthesize.”
