Anonymous A asked on Feb 01, 2017

Anyone has been through this interview, what type of case and questions to expect? Do you think that general questions on whats happening in the world: M&A deal values etc. might come up? Thank you!

Interviewing with MBB . Offline cases over 50+. Look for regular case partners in New York City. email: i********@y***.edu

It is similar to the generalist interview. But it would be a plus if you show quick and accurate on numbers. Pay attention to behavior.
