I'm preparing for my final round interview with McKinsey Singapore next week, and was wondering if anyone had any good tips for nailing this final round.
Specifically, I would like to know three things:
1) Case Types:
what sort of case work drives the portfolio at McKinsey Singapore and SE Asia by extension: Market Entry? M&A? Business Reorganisation? Some other functions?
2) Industry Portfolio:
what industries dominate the region? So far, I've been researching case studies and current trends in Financial Services, Manufacturing, Consumer Retail, Upstream Oil & Gas, and Public Sector. Am I missing any? Are there any above that seem more important to focus on?
3) Cultural Fit for an Outsider:
what is the best way to demonstrate Fit? For the sake of disclosue, I am 'outsider' to the region: a Moroccan national with a professional and academic background in Germany and the United Kingdom.
In this regard:
a) what aspects of my personal story should I look to highlight in these final interviews? and
b) what unique cultural elements of corporate SE Asia are likely to present themselves in a Fit interview, and how can I prepare for and navigate these unique cultural elements?
I am really grateful in advance to this solid community of experts and enthusiasts as your responses will be so helpful for these final stages of my preparation.
