Hi,

First of all - almost all Bain cases are interviewee led. Thus you have to drive the case and you have to come to a certain number and the conclusion in the end.

It may seem to you that these 2 types of cases are different, however, the interviewer-led type is just a simplified version of the interviewee-led case. My advice is to prepare a lot in the interviewee-led format so that you could solve both easily.

Here is some information according to 100+ Bain cases my candidates had on the interviews. However it may be not representative geographically, but according to my experience:

Most common types of case:

  • Private equity (due diligence)
  • Synergies
  • Profitability + market sizing as a part of a case
  • Market Entry

Most common industries:

  • Retail
  • CPG
  • Airlines
  • HORECA - hotels, restaurants, coffeeshops, etc
  • Diamonds (Might be specific to the particular office)
  • Agriculture (No specifics, closer to CPG)

Hi Lorenzo,

based on the feedback of the candidates I helped to land an offer from Bain in Milan, the vast majority of the cases are related to one of the following three categories:

  • M&A/PE
  • Profitability
  • Market sizing

It's very likely you will get a minimum of one case of this type. Please feel free to message me for more information.

Best,

Francesco

Hey Lorenzo,

Bain in general apply interviewee led business cases. Besides, they do really love PE and M&A type of cases (when compared with McK or BCG that uses them much more rarely)

Hope this helps

Best
