Bain First Round - Italy

Someone asked on Feb 24, 2019 - 2 answers

Hi All

I have a first round interview with Bain in Italy - any tips on the cases that might be asked? Has someone had an interview with them that is willing to share the case that has been asked?

Thanks in advance

Hi Anonymous,

I have helped several people in the preparation for Bain in Italy and I am quite familiar with their questions there; recurring questions are related to:

  • M&A/PE/Valuation
  • Profitability
  • Market sizing

It's very likely you will get a minimum of one case related to one of the previous areas; please feel free to PM me for more information.

Best,

Francesco

Hi,

Interviewers across different offices have hundreds of cases. You are likely to get the same one if you talk to 30-40 people who have been through the interviews in a similar office recently. Otherwise - it's useless. Pls concentrate your efforts on preparation.
