I was recently on an MBB first round which I did through Skype and was able to advance to the final round, coming in a couple days. I did not receive much feedback, but one of the case questions had me struggling a bit, since it did not have the typical structure/approach I have come to expect.
I was asked the following: Your client is a UK PE firm looking to acquire a Spanish shoe manufacturer. Give me five things you would like to know about the market and five things about the firm in order to assess this opportunity.
My trouble came with the 5 things, 5 things, and although I managed to provide some good analysys and insights I believe I was a bit unstructured. How would you suggest initially approaching such question. How would you structure it?
