"Recent alum; 45 minutes length; digged deeper into my career goals and recruiting plan. Behavioral questions caught me off guard a little bit; Asked several “what would you have done it differently” after my responses. 1. Tell me about yourself (I incorporated Why MBA in my response) 2. Why do you have to get an MBA in order to achieve your long-term goal? Isn’t the experience in your current position and country enough? 3. Why Ross? 4. Then some detailed recruiting-related questions, basically wanna see whether I understand the process and challenges and how I would leverage the school resources 5. Tell me a time when you faced an organizational change 6. Tell me a time when you faced conflicts and had to persuade someone 7.
