BCG real life second round

Raphaela asked on Aug 14, 2019 - 1 answer

Hi all,

I have my second round at BCG in Germany scheduled in a few weeks and I was curious if someone can tell something about recent tasks for the real life part?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Raphaela

what do you mean by the "real life" part? I thought the interview is a case study and an interview based on your CV/cover letter.. — Anonymous A on Aug 21, 2019

Hey Raphaela,

they are not really recent but I remember what I had to do 5 years ago.

1) Hold small talk with a senior client in the taxi

2) "Sell" my favourite hobby to someone who does not like it

3) Write an email to a senior partner

Hope this helps.

Best

John
