How strict is the background check of candidates by MBB?

Anonymous A asked on Aug 16, 2018 - 1 answer

Hi guys I'm writing my CV and want to ask how strict the MBB background check is as I'm not sure of the exact percentages of some of my experience, such as:

- elected VP of the student organization out of 6 or 7 contenders

- grade ranking of undergraduate studies, to 10% or top 15% or top 20%? I have a rough estimation but don't remember exactly, and the university didn't provide these rankings.

So my questions is what the MBB background check includes, do they go through every details in the CV?

Neither of this will be checked. The outsourced security company will check whether you really worked / studied in the places that you've mentioned during these dates and whether you have any equity / securities. That's it.
