A.T. Kearney Germany, interview process/cases

Someone asked on Feb 06, 2018 - 2 answers


I would really appreciate any insights on which cases A.T. Kearney focuses and whether there is anything special in the interviewing process that I should consider.
I have read all the information on their webpage and I did not apply for a specific industry or area.

Thanks a lot!

I knew a bunch of folks that interviewed with ATK Germany. Here are my observations from memory:

- lots of logistics / supply chain case studies

- focus on automotive, semiconductors, and hi-tech sectors - they seem to come up more often

- be fluent solving in german (unless you aren't native, then english ok)

- lots of math/analysis focused Q&A

McKinsey / Accenture / Got all BIG3 offers / More than 300 real MBB cases / Harvard Business School


I used the following case book for preparation:


But to be honest my interviews were pretty standard to consulting:

  1. Various types of cases: Market sizing, Profitability, Business situation. No Social-type or unusual cases like McKinsey
  2. Various industries (restaurant, Oil&gas, retail)
  3. Interviewee-led
  4. Less critical to structure than MBB companies. And overall the interviews were less structured
  5. Standard Fit Questions: Why Kearney, Why consulting, Walk me through your resume, Your questions to them)
