Cornell Johnson Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Second-Year Student / Skype

The interview was very friendly and conversational. Fairly conventional and nothing particularly surprising, though it was highly tailored to my resume and background. There was definitely a strong focus on why Cornell specifically and it seemed like the interviewer was trying to assess my interest in the school. I definitely got the sense that Johnson has a strong and tight-knit culture from how the interviewer interacted with me and talked about his experience.

1. Walk me through your resume.
2. Why are you getting an MBA?
3. Why Cornell Johnson?
4. Have you spoken with any students in brand management? (I indicated an interest in it.)
5. Talk about a time when you addressed and overcame a challenge.
6. How did you choose to take the next steps that you did after COVID disrupted your job?
7. Do you have any questions for me?
