Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Admission Interviews

The interview is an opportunity for you to provide a more personal explanation of your background and interests. It's also an opportunity for you to learn more about the program. Your application is not complete without an interview. 

  • An interview is required as part of your application 
  • Interviews may take place in-person, by phone or via Skype
  • Interviews are approximately 30 - 45 minutes in length

Contact a Counselor: Prior to the interview, you are strongly encouraged to speak with an Admissions Counselor who will provide feedback on your candidacy, offer insight into the admissions process, and ensure that you make the most of your interview. Email your Admissions Counselor now.

Schedule an Interview:

  • Your interview can be scheduled at any point in the application process
  • Schedule your interview at your earliest convenience as interview slots may fill quickly
  • Use our online scheduling system to register
    • The system is not connected to the online application, so you will need to create a unique account for each.
    • The system will not allow you to schedule an interview less than 4 days in advance of your selected date. However, if you are within the 4-day window, contact us at +1.919.660.7705, and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
