BCG Test Poland

Dominik asked on Nov 12, 2019 - 2 answers

Hi, Has anyone taken a BCG Online Test recently? Could you share what industry the case was based in? Would be especially helpful, if you took the test in Warsaw office. If you're preparing for the case interview at MBB Warsaw, let me know, we can practice together (in Polish).

Cheers,

Hello Dominik,

I did it at the Milan office and it was a case related to an aircraft company. It's not a standard business case, but there are several GMAT-like questions that asks you to read charts and to do qualitative reasoning.
It was years ago but some candidates told me recently that it's not changed.

Hope it helps,
Luca
