You should expect the following:
1. An online assement
- Numerical test, and in some cases, a verbal reasoning or a personality test
2. First round case interviews
- Standard Fit/Behavioural + Case Interview (candidate-led)
3. Second round case interviews
- Fit/Behavioural interview
- Case interview (candidate-led)
- Case presentation - 30 minutes to read through material and 30 minutes to present + answer questions
In terms of case types I honestly recommend you prepare for all case types (always best to be ready for anything and to learn how to be adaptable). However, if you are limited in time, make sure to focus on:
- Financial cases (i.e. M&A, Profitability, etc.)
- Pricing, Sales, and Marketing
