Hi guys,

Has anyone had an interview (first round) at BCG Munich recently and could give me some insights on the online test, the case studies (e,g, industries covered) and personal questions?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Regarding the interviews, it´s going to be the usual: FIT + Business Case + Q&A. The topic of each case, as well as the style in which it is conducted, will totally depend on the interviewer. Hence, each person will have a completly different experience.

Hope it helps!

Hi there,

I helped a good number of people for BCG Munich; some common types of cases there include:

  • M&A
  • Market sizing
  • Profitability

Please feel free to PM for more information, I have several real case questions asked at BCG in Germany.

the interview will be structured in 3 parts:
- Personal Experience Interview: fit and CV questions to assess your personal impact, leadership skills, and entrepreneurial spirit. You should prepare impactful stories about your experiences that cover these 3 main pillars.
- Case Interview: typical business case to evaluate your structure in approaching problems, problem-solving skills, and business sense. This is the most time-demanding aspect to work on. I recommend reading Cosentino's Case in point to fix the theory. Then, what will be really important is practicing mock cases with other candidates here on Preplounge.
- Your final questions to the interviewers.

Hope it helps,
