How do I prepare the best for an upcoming BCG Interview (will be in 4 weeks).

I did cases so far, but is there anything especially for BCG to keep in mind? Special cases, approaches, etc.?

What is especially important for them?

Best,

Hi,

I confirm that case preparation for BCG is the "classical" one. It will be important instead to be prepared about the fit interview to motivate "why BCG" and for some insights about the local office.

Feel free to text me for any tips about structuring a structured preparation plan for these remaining weeks.

Best,

Antonello

Hi,

I have trained many applicants from Germany. Typically 3-4 weeks of preparation should be sufficient. I would be more than happy to jump on a free of charge call to better elaborate on the preparation plan!

Best,

Deniz

Hi there,

I agree to other experts that you have to be prepared to "normal" MBB interview.

However, I would suggest to pay a lot of attention on the structure and organization of your sheet of paper, where you write the business case. BCG collects it to check the layout of your notes (you should aim to draft like a ppt slide). In addition, BCG asks more difficult calculation with less approx and really like structure thoughts (more than Bain for istance).

Of course, all the interviews are different, but these are some of the peculiarities of BCG.
