MBA Interview Questions in 2023: Insights from Top Business Schools

By Arvind Kumar

MBA admissions in 2023 continue to be a challenging process, with top business schools seeking candidates who not only possess strong academic and professional backgrounds but also display the personal qualities and experiences that make them stand out. 

To understand whether applicants are a perfect fit and can contribute to the school’s community, interviewers utilize a combination of traditional and behavioral questions.

These behavioral questions, which often begin with phrases like “What would,” “Why did,” or “Tell me about a time” (TMAT), aim to uncover an applicant’s problem-solving abilities, planning and preparedness, self-awareness, and impact potential. 

Every business school has its unique approach to interviews, which makes it essential for candidates to prepare comprehensively. 

In this article, we will explore the specific MBA interview questions posed to candidates by several top business schools in 2023. Each school’s section will list the questions typically asked during their interviews.
