Hi Philip,

Do I understand correctly that by assessment you mean that you'll have a group case as well?

Here are some tips for the group exercise:

  • You will be in a group of 6-10 other candidates
  • You'll have a case (general business problem though with various aspects to look at, i.e. marketing, supply chain, finance)
  • The main goal is to discuss the case together and come to a collaborative solution

My advice for the assessment center:

  • Don't take a leadership role trying to organize and manage other people unless you are a 100% natural leader
  • Act rather like a contributor with: a) frameworks to structure the problem b) rough calculations c) Industry / functional knowledge (it helps to be a background in marketing or supply chain) d) creative ideas
  • Be nice and friendly with everyone and don't try to show that you are better than others. Rather impress with contribution and impact

Good luck!

I wanted to know whether the consultants in Munich have the applicants hold a spontanous presentation?

A good idea, especially for round 2 and later interviews, is to prepare for a group discussion / group case study in which case you'd also need to practice standing your ground with ideas, being fact/ data-driven, and taking a leadership role in summarizing the case, etc.

Aside from that, prep hard for your case and making sure your frameworks / mathematical toolkit are sharp.
