Hi Narue, I have some!! ;D

I remember having two cases to solve. A simple profitability case and a market sizing case. Since both interviewers were well acquainted with both cases, they expected a rigid solution process. However, I remember the cases being pretty basic anyway and both interviewers were kind and courteous as well. Unfortunately, I do not remember the specific cases anymore... But if you’d prepare the basic issues, I hope it should be manageable. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to help :) Good luck with that.
