This guide is designed to help Johnson MBA applicants to prepare for their interview, complete with a list of the most common Cornell MBA interview questions. The typical Johnson MBA interview is 30 to 50 minutes long. It can be given by either a second year student, alumni or an admissions committee member. It is even possible to get an interview with an adcom member while a second year student is observing for interview training purposes. Interviews can take place on campus, off-campus or over Skype. Expect the interview to be semi-blind, which means that they have seen your resume but probably nothing else. The Cornell MBA interview questions below are organized from most common question to least common, with the frequency it is asked in parenthesis.
The Naveen Jindal School of Management awards some merit-based scholarships to new and continuing Professional MBA students in Fall and Spring semesters. Please be aware that Professional MBA candidates must submit a GMAT or GRE score to be eligible for new student scholarships in the Jindal School. You must have official GMAT/GRE exam scores sent to UT Dallas by the scholarship application deadline to be awarded scholarship. Each scholarship may have specific requirements based on the purpose of the scholarship; however, the JSOM Graduate Scholarship Committee will consider applicants for all available scholarships. Continuing students are eligible to apply for scholarship after two long semesters. Visit the JSOM scholarships page to view the requirements and apply. Students are not considered automatically for scholarship awards and must apply online to be considered by the JSOM graduate scholarship committee. You must be admitted prior to applying for scholarship. JSOM scholarships have very specific deadlines (Fall deadline: May 20th, Spring deadline: December 5th).
