Capital one ( quantitative case questions)


Hello Everyone,

Did anyone interview with capital one ? They have a mix of qualitative and quantitative casing pattern although much strong focus on quantitative. I am wondering if anyone has sets of questions on computing profit if a given scenario and then compute change in profit with a different scenario.

Any help will be highly appreciated,

Ex-MBB, Experienced Hire; I will teach you not only the how, but also the why of case interviews

COF will definitely give you a case featuring a lot of math. I suggest you review the break-even formulas specifically. Type of questions would be "how will a shift in credit card take rate impact the break-even of this marketing campaign"
