Hi,

You can expect 4 types of questions:

1) Standard fit stories

  • Leadership and teamwork
  • Entrepreneurial experience
  • Persuasion experience

2) CV questions

  • What exactly did you achieve on this project?
  • How was your performance assessed by your boss?
  • Why did you change employer in xxxx year?

3) Non-standard Fit stories

  • Tell me about a time when you showed creativity?
  • How do you react on feedback?
  • What do you want to achieve in the next 5 years?
  • What are your weaknesses?

4) Motivational fit stories

  • Why do you want to enter consulting?
  • Why do you want to join BCG?
  • Why do you want to join Dubai office?
  • Do you have a particular interest to any industry practice?

Note that your answers should be:
1) Structured
2) Promoting your image (showing your strengths)
3) Remarkable (non-standard)

I would be happy to help you to structure your answers. Message me for details.

Best,

Anton

Hello!

On top of the insights already shared in the post, the "Integrated FIT guide for MBB" has been recently published in PrepLounge´s shop (https://www.preplounge.com/en/shop/tests-2/integrated-fit-guide-for-mbb-34)

It provides an end-to-end preparation for all three MBB interviews, tackling each firms particularities and combining key concepts review and a hands-on methodology. Following the book, the candidate will prepare his/her stories by practicing with over 50 real questions and leveraging special frameworks and worksheets that guide step-by-step, developed by the author and her experience as a Master in Management professor and coach. Finally, as further guidance, the guide encompasses over 20 examples from real candidates.

Feel free to PM me for disccount codes, since we still have some left from the launch!

Hope you find it useful!

Best,

Hi there,

I helped several people for the BCG Dubai office, the most common fit questions asked are:

  • Tell me about yourself
  • Why consulting
  • Why BCG
  • Why Dubai

You may want to prepare the typical fit stories as well, just in case they ask them, although they are not common in Dubai.

In terms of the cases, I know 40+ real case questions asked there, please feel free to PM me for more information.

Best,

Francesco
