Oliver Wyman interview

Anonymous A asked on Mar 17, 2016 - 5 answers

Please help. I have an upcoming final round with Oliver Wyman. It will consist in 2 case interviews and 1 cv-based interview. One of the case interviews is a presentation case interview. So basically a written case, but instead of one on one interaction, it is presentation to a panel of consultants (2). They let you use a board and marker. You prepare for 30min, then you present for 10min and then 15 min questions.

Any tips on how to approach this second round with OW (including the presentation)? Any tips can help.

the presentation case is not too different from normal case interviews except that you present your solution at once in front of a small panel. Approach the case as you would do with other cases, focus on the most important messages and be prepared to discuss why you chose a specific approach to solve the case.

The important part is that you show confidence when it comes to presenting your solution - your interviewer wants to see that you 1) prepared, 2) thought about your logic and 3) are able to defend your solution.

Hope this helps
