Hi guys,

I received an invite from BCG Beijing office for a pre-talk interview.

The email I received says:

Interview format: Behavior question/mini case;1 on 1 interview of 10 minutes.

I'm wondering what type of questions will be asked (apart from self-introduction, project experience).

Also I want to get an example of mini case, wondering how a case can be covered within 10 min.

Hi,

I worked with trainees from Beijing, and I did not encounter a "mini-case" before. Most likely, it would be a short market sizing question given the small amount of time allocated.

Best,

Deniz

Hi, they are probably referring to a quick market sizing. Here you can find some examples:
