I could be wrong but think that LEK first round is free standing market sizing and then a CV interview done seperately but not sure what second round involves.

I've been told that OC&C happens over one day - but not sure what is included?

The main thing is I wonder whether they both do the data dump and present to a panel/partner in 30mins style interview or if it is all one-on-one

Hi Anonymous,

the answer depends on the country, but as for LEK, a candidate I just helped securing an offer in the US got individual cases related to M&A, new product and market entry. I would recommend contacting HR, they should be able to anticipate what is the expected standard for the interview in your specific country.

Looking for solid partners. Currently preparing for McK, BCG and Bain interviews.

I don't know about LEK, but for OC&C they typically give a somewhat less-structured case, along with a print-out of slides for you to look through.
